Wordless(ish) Wednesday: Abandoned

During our March road trip, Vince and I saw this beautiful, huge abandoned house in Hisarya. I made him pull around–we were on a 1 way street–to let me out so that I could take some photos.

I found the side gate open and was so tempted to venture in. But I chickened out as thoughts of being thrown into a Bulgarian jail for trespassing flooded my mind.

I am still regretting it. Maybe one day we’ll visit again and I can poke around the place (and eat more of the amazing fig ice cream I enjoyed nearby).

Seems like it may have been a school at some point as there were lots of rusting slides and playground equipment scattered around the property.

It makes me sad to see such a grand house in complete disrepair.

On that note…

Happy WW!


(No linkies for the next few weeks as I settle into my Alaska life and wait for some reliable(ish) internet. Sorry!)

    Wow!!! That house looks incredible! You’ve captured it so well. I love your photos of abandoned Bulgarian properties, they are so imposing and mysterious!

    This is an awesome picture. If I were with you, I would have gone in! Maybe….er, probably not. I’m a rule follower :) I would love to buy that place and fix it up to live in.Of course, since I’m not a self-made millionaire, it will have to be a pipe dream!

      I am a rule follower too. All the way! It was such a pretty house in person. The pictures don’t actually do it justice.

    What haunting photos, especially with the overgrown playground. Beautiful, though… it could be such a gorgeous house.

      It could be so beautiful, I agree! I really would love to know more about it.
