Visit Chernobyl and Pripyat

Chernobyl – Pripyat

People react in different ways when you mention this city. They don’t imagine our interest for this city but most of urban explorers dream to visit Chernobyl and the abandoned city of Pripyat. Since the disaster, the town remains unfit for human habitation. On the 27th December 2016, as a late Christmas gift, Planet Chernobyl offered me a visit to Chernobyl. It’s my first trip to Chernobyl and my first legal visit with a group of people. I need to […]

This beautiful hotel was abandoned since 2007. We went inside through an open window and discovered the majestic living room with this white veil hanging from the ceiling.

We do not give the location of this place for security reasons and do not encourage to explore it. There are many cases of […]

Abandoned Castle in Belgium

Cesar Castle – Andenne

We didn’t explore the Cesar Castle during the best season, we couldn’t see the facade due to the vegetation cover. This castle is located in the town of Andenne in the Province of Namur. The place doesn’t have so much interest. Built during the 19th century, the castle was bought in the 1950s by a printer in bankruptcy. We do not give the location of this place for security reasons and do not encourage to explore it. There are many […]

Wienerwald Sanatorium

This Austrian sanatorium, founded by two doctors, Hugo Kraus and Arthur Baer, was built in 1903 and abandoned since 2002. It was famous but now, the place is damaged without really interest. During many years, the sanatorium was used for patients suffering from tuberculosis and was requisitioned by Nazis in April 1938. The sanatorium was used as a factory with the goal of raising the birth rate of “Aryan” children by the organization “Lebensborn e. V.”. Lebensborn encouraged anonymous births […]

The interior was quite empty but it remained some medical equipments: posters, medical products and all the instruments used for extracting teeth. The place was abandoned for years but remained well preserved. We do not give the location of this place for security […]

Luka Magnotta House

Located in a peaceful neighborhood, you cannot see this house if you don’t know before that it is abandoned. We managed to get inside discreetly. Obviously, the house had to belong to an elderly couple who died and nobody bought the house. Everything is intact inside, it’s really fantastic. The most impressive room is certainly the attic with old portraits, maybe the inhabitants of the house, it will remain a mystery. An exploration in silence and respect. We do not […]
