No Fame Can Save You When Fortune Speaks

This, my dear readers, has for years been the most famous buildings that have been abandoned in Finland in years. A restaurant was founded here in the 1930’s, and the building was enlarged to its current shape in 1939. The restaurant was in the wing closer to the camera, the large firewall seen in theJatka lukemista ”No Fame Can Save You When Fortune Speaks”

The Cursed School Part II

After seeing the texts described at the end of the last post, this place started really giving us the chill. I mean they were texts, just texts written by teenagers feeling desperation in this city of hopelessness and social problems. But still they were something different. ”Are we alone in the Universe”, asks a SwedishJatka lukemista ”The Cursed School Part II”

The Cursed School Part I

The evening was perfect. The sun was setting behind the sea, the camera of my new phone displayed excellent qualities. Excellent for the time being, at least.

Windy City Tour

No roadtrip, no summer. At least that’s how I think, and luckily I have like minded friends. We packed our bags and headed towards their hometown, toured a few churches and other must to see -places.

Little Stubs of Details from the Workers’ Institute

Okay, this story is getting familiar already. Another friend of mine saw my pictures and heard my stories about my urbex hobby and asked, if she could accompany me.

The Game’s Over, Boys

I hadn’t even finished my tour around the Vilnius Palace of Concerts and Sports, when I already had spotted something in the woods. A majestic gate surrounded by an old fence.

Another Bad Quality Soviet Masterpiece

My Lithuanian vacation continued in the capital Vilnius. The place was lovely and lively, the weather was as good as I could get. I spent the days roaming around town visiting restaurants, bars and terraces, I did all the sightseeing I could do.

An Unwanted Monument

I finished school and decided to reward myself with a holiday. Lithuania was cheap, unexplored territory and I had some friends there, so I booked tickets without any bigger plans. I contacted my friends, who lived in Kaunas, and agreed to meet them on the second day of my holiday. I wrote to social mediaJatka lukemista ”An Unwanted Monument”

An Elementary Location

In Vaasa there was a place, which had intrigued me since my childhood for several reasons. First of all the place was located by the old highway to Tampere. A motorway had been built in the 1960’s, and the section of the old road became a ramp to the road for slow traffic. When theJatka lukemista ”An Elementary Location”

White House Comes Crumbling Down

A new year, but sadly nothing new in terms of adventures. The massive rebuilding of the city of Oulu continued. Almost every single meeting of the city council included several new plans, where old parts of the city was demolished to make way for new buildings, mainly apartments.
