    URBEX - urban exploration 4ever!

    The first place I explored was an abandoned hotel on the seashore. It was called Hotel Jadrin, in Croatia. It was abandoned because of the war on the Balkan in the 90's.Me and my gf searched for a nudist beach between Makarska and Tucepi called Nugal. We parked the car at Tucepi...

    I love to see random abandoned places,

    such as gasoline stations, parking spaces, and car dealerships. I like to see the vegetation grow back into the concrete and see traces of erosion.

    Love would be a strong word to use lol

    but i do enjoy going to places that seem old and could possibly have some sort of history to them. i'd never go anywhere like that alone though, I have to have someone to grab onto very very tightly as I walk through just in case anything pops out. Gotta trip someone so i can...

    Attached is another picture of the abandoned

    building I posted about a couple weeks ago. After asking around and getting other opinions, I think it may have been a school in the late 1800's. I am sad that the land it's on is for sale. There was something else that was next to it that seemed to be connected to it somehow...

    Where I live, the landscape is littered with

    historic Second Empires, (Dutch) Colonials, Italianate federals and rusted Industrial era foundries. Occasionally, there's a dilapidated castle.It's like living in a Tim Burton film...And I love it. It's weird how history can be felt through the architecture that humanity has...

    I rarely feel more at peace

    than when I'm sitting in a place ******** of its purpose and neglected to the point of collapse. I always find something beautiful about it.

    I guess that was their garage.

    I can't tell what kind of car that is. Almost looks like a jeep but I think it's an old pickup truck.

    I've been fascinated by vacant buildings

    as long as I can remember. I always wonder about the history, who were the occupants throughout the years, and why the structure was abandoned. If possible, I'll even explore the building just to see what the interior looks like and see what, if anything was left behind. Most of...

    Having still 2 kids under 18 (although one

    barely) and living in an area with derelict mills, ruins in every woodland and a constantly changing town it's a gold mine of place to Urbex. If this upload works then this is one of a creek full of rotting boats nearby :)

    So there's this old bridge at the end of town.

    It's covered in graffiti, broken glass and other things. Probably one of the best places to be.

    I love seeing buildings like this with the old

    water spout. When do you think that was built? Late 1800's? Before then?

    There's a smaller abandoned amphitheater in the

    woods about a ten minutes drive from my moms house. There are ladders and you can go up behind the stage, and if ur brave walk across to the other side. Not too many ppl know about it, so it's a good place to go at night. Me and my friends go sometimes and pretend to put on...

    I feel really attracted by old,

    abandoned, devastated buildings. factories with empty, black eye holes of windows. Near the place where i live are some abandoned villages, or actually some ruins with trees, flowers, grass on it, wild apple trees and plums. I like to walk through such a places and imagine...

    It just sounds really cool. I've been to other abandoned places like houses but never a abandoned hospital. :PP

    I find abandoned places intriguing:) I like to

    wonder what an old abandoned home was like when it was thriving... the different weaving of lives within its rooms. If the old walls could talk, I wonder what stories they would tell?:)

    I grew up with this sight.

    Driving through the country in the backseat of the car, windows down, watching the world roll by. I liked the old places best. They made me sad, but I liked them best. Like an old black and white photograph they sat surrounded by color that couldn't touch them. How do you look...

    I love the sense of history,

    of lives lived, found in abandoned places. There is such a sense of presence in these places, of the people that once inhabited them. It is so cool to wander them and try to get a sense of what it was like, what the people were like, to discover left over traces of their lives...

    I'm seriously obsessed with abandoned buildings

    *-* Idk why, I find them so fascinating. Especially hospitals, theme parks, restaurants. I live about a half a mile away from this old school, half of it burned down, but the rest is still there, it's been abandoned for about 50 years now, I think. A lot of people say it...

    I have a deep affinity

    for abandoned buildings. Although they can be creepy, they are so damn beautiful. I love to take pictures of these places and touch all the different textures and smell the decay (although sometimes the scent is just urine>: p and others require a mask). I also appreciate...

    I love everything about abandoned places.

    The history. The people that once there. The spookiness. The architecture. The markings. Actually one of my fav near by places purchased and the new owner doesn't like trespassers. I don't blame her/him not all of them are respectful towards the property but they put up fences...

    I live in a fairly old town,

    and being that I'm new there, I don't know many of the stories behind the abandoned buildings. I must admit that they fascinate me. I think, "If these walls could talk, what stories would they tell?

    I really wish I had a group of friends I could

    go with to this old school I live by, it's really big, and it's been abandoned for a long time, my mom said it was even empty when she was a baby. People say it's haunted. I love old buildings, going through old hospitals and asylums are like, the coolest things.
