Road Trip - Kujawy

A little preview of a trip to Inowrocław, where around fifteen Polish explorers met and did a little off-road-urbex gathering. Great times and big shout to everyone involved.

attendance list: our host Krawiec (Neurotransmiter), Wilga (No Trespassing), Szydłak Szk, Kwolas (Life is Illusion), Płomień (urbex.net.pl), Rocko De La'Maga, Culmar Di Curt, Travis Humantree, EdEk, Showtek and Liściu +1.

Day 1

Institut of Plant Genetics

Quite interesting place with few greenhouses and utility buildings.






Boarding School

Fantastic place with lots of vivid colours somehow reminded me of a well known abandoned school in UK.





Then after another few hours of driving we finally arrived to Inowrocław to meet Krawiec and the rest of our team :) Decision has been made to organize a party and a sleep over on top of the roof.. heh.



Day 2

Waking up after a busy night..


And off to the first location:



Distillery

Main feature of this place was a very interestingly shaped furnace and lots of unusual warning signs i.e. "Drinking alcohol on premises is prohibited."





Bem's VI Artillery Unit

Second stop, we explored three kind of buildings here: barracks, office/training and depots.





we took crew shot here as well:



Fort XI Toruń

After getting supplies for the night we went to our second sleeping destination, WWII bunker taken over by Bunkerites of Poland who allowed us to use this facility, it has been a part of a large military complex called Fort XI.


Fort itself had some interesting WWII prisoners graffiti:




Day 3

After slight adjustments in our crew, and a fail at some industrial site we headed towards this factory.

Dairy

With almost complete machinery and equipment left behind. I really liked the old gas distributor located just outside the complex.





Wapno Salt Mine

Next stop was this amazing abandoned salt mine located in Wapno, closed after mining disaster in 1977 - the mine was flooded by groundwater. In April 2007, thirty years since the disaster another subsequent collapse of the land occured in this area.





Gothic Church

Almost last stop of this day, evangelical church from the late XIXth century, sadly stripped down and without many features, on the other hand it had very nice carer with a german shepherd we called Stalker.





Distillery

We arrived here for the sunset, not much left inside as it has been abandoned for quite a while, still with a good light it looked quite nice.



Day 4

Did not plan to stay over, but eventually since it got quite late we decided to head back home early next day and possibly do few more things on the way.

Abandoned House

A house we have spotted on the way.






Slovakia Prison

Last stop of the whole trip turned out to be an abandoned prison. Primarily built in Middle Ages then rebuilt after the partitions of Poland in the XVIII and XIX century. Formerly housed the church and Dominican monastery.
