This time we decided to visit an old meat factory situated in Vilnius southern industrial district. This place isn’t very popular among explorers so we really didn’t knew what we gonna find there. But now I can confirm, that it is worth the visit. The buildings have seen better days, but still you can find some interesting stuff there.
Front plate cover of a vintage radio called ERA-204. These radios production started at 1985.
This sign of a construction year placed at the entrance floor of Sigma sanatory.
Colorful painting of two sisters contrast to grey rubble and darkness left alone in this abandoned place
One of the saddest things left in abandoned buildings is some form of art. This soviet style wall paint is a good example of such act.
The smiley of a sink clearly shows the mood of inhabitants of this ruined place.
This is an old Lithuanian refrigerators “Snaigė“ freezer door with its inner side facing upward. The markings on it shows the necessary temperature for a particular dish storage.
Winter is stubborn for sure this year and after Fridays snowstorm, we went for an urban exploration. This time to Vilnius Antakalnis district, to abandoned children’s clinic. It was really worth the visit mainly because its in very good condition, full of interesting stuff and wasn’t visited by robbers or other sort of lowlifes. The main building has few broken-in entrances. Some of them have been blocked, but not the main door one, where we entered through glassless window. First of all the ceiling lamps greeted us with yellowish light, what disturbed us for some time. We thought maybe the building is being repaired or guarded (there is electricity in whole building), moreover some sounds of pounding hammer were coming from rightmost part of the building. We took turn to left and straight to the basement.
The basement is probably the most interesting place there, because all stuff from upper floors is crammed to small dark rooms. There we took this composition of medical chair, mirror and some old artificial flowers in blueish vase. The room also had some flabby balloons hanging from ceiling lamps. Like a leftovers of some party.
Then we went further to the right of the building to a room where lots of medical syringes were cluttered on the floor, as well as boxes of sterile water and other liquids, everything covered in ice, even the light bulb hanging from low ceiling.
Unused needles box on top of heating pipes.
“Sterile water for injection” unopened packet.
Stacked boxes of medical liquids, soaked in water and ice.
Paint splashes as a background for this large syringe.
All types of syringes.
Wheelchair and an armchair in another room.
In some rooms everything is covered with white powder, maybe from ageing ceiling coating.
Torn drum and other trash.
Basement connects two clinic buildings – main and the one with swimming pool.
There is electricity even in the basement.
The basement also has a room full of patient journals, x-ray photos, etc.
After looking around the basement we went to second building, where swimming pool and rehabilitation cabinets are situated. This building is one floor height and it is very bright in there, because of windows in the ceiling.
Coloured heating radiator.
The swimming pool is in good condition, except the graffiti paintings.
After visiting second building we went back to first ones other floors.
Dandelion blossoms in this strange creation.
Upper floors are mostly empty. And the sounds we heard before, probably were coming from outside.
Operating room was also empty, only lots of lamps on the ceiling.
Monster plants occupy one room.
This one had to see something bad…
Another stool in the middle of hallway.
Vintage hand dryer.
We also found some glass syringes in top floor.
Russian fire truck ZIL-133 has been out of use for a long time and rusted pretty badly. The petrol pump standing near isn’t doing better either. Only snow and ice preserves their decayed components.
Trakai castle is not only surrounded by nice nature sights, but also some harsh looking old abandoned ruins standing just at the shore of the lake. I cannot complain because looking through such opening and seeing the castle accompanied by some rubble and old tires by the wall is truly unique.
The reason why this man is standing there and what is he doing there is left for a viewer to guess. One thing is sure – that floodlight makes lots of light, no matter the autumn darkness.
