House of Ghosts

Falling in Ruins

Locals call it a House of Ghosts. It was built in 1876 and changed couple of owners. The last one was from 1913, Romanian Jewish family, who owned it until 2nd World War. After Nazis confiscated what was worth of taking from the inside this charming building was abandoned by everyone.

Now it is too late for any kind of renovation. It is totally ruined and it should be pulled down. Only walls left - and rubbish. People use it for a rubbish dump. It is not safe going inside cause everything is falling apart.

I was fascinated with it. It must have been a gorgeous house once. Unfortunately, this is a story of too many old buildings in Slovenia which end like this one. Abandoned.
