This huge memorial building at the mountain Petrova Gora is dedicated to the uprising of the people of Kordun and Banija, to remember those who fought bravely against the spread of fascism during 1941 and 1942. The site has fallen into severe disrepair however, with many of the polished metal panels falling away from the building to expose a skeletal frame.
Check this link for the first serie of pictures of this beautiful abandoned villa on the Liburnian coast.
We arrived at the villa after a long walk on the boulevard, accompanied by thunderstorms. I really did not have high expectations of being able to enter the grounds and the villa – the photos I had seen showed a fence that was more than 2 meters high – but I was too curious not to pass by. Fortunately, there was an opening in the fence, which I could climb over with a little agility!
On the northern side of Pula bay stretches out the former Naval Base Katarina, originally built as part of the Austro-Hungarian defence system of the city of Pula and further extended during Italian rule.
The shipwreck Moira Pula is located near the abandoned Katarina Naval Base which was built during the Austro-Hungarian Empire, then became Italian and during WWII it was a base for German U-boats.
The midsection of this building opened in 1912 as Grand Hotel Prealpi. During the First World War the two wings were added and it was converted into a military hospital.
Wahn: once a flourishing village, but since the Second World War a ruin in an area which is still the largest military training area in Europe.
My son Twan and I visited this abandoned military facilitie in August 2015. This urbex location is located near the village of Tocna – suburbs of Prague – and it was intended to defend the capital of the country against any air attack from the NATO countries during The Cold War.
Hotel Jadran was socialist Yugoslavia’s first hotel. When the construction of the hotel finished in 1950, most observers agreed that it was the most beautiful on the coast, situated along a three kilometer stretch of pebble beach on the Makarska Riviera in the tiny town of Tucepi, and surrounded in pines. This was my first urban exploration in a foreign country.
