    Sterkoder,

    Dear Sir,

    I really love these two last posts... inspiring, interesting and clearly, they have a story to tell. Once upon a time, someone took great care of creating these places, but for some unknown reason, they have been abandoned, neglected and left to rot. There are surely many stories behind and we can only speculate. There is a (morbid) obsession for me to study abandoned places.

      Thank you.
      Yes, a kind of morbid obsession. But as I walk alone, I don't dare to step inside, even in daylight.
      The reason, or a large part of it is that we can never be sure about the floor or roof, and as I am rather heavy, I don't take the chance of being left alone falling down or something. So be aware folks, be at least two together when entering abandoned places.
      The local school use these houses (there are in fact three or four spread around in the same forest) to learn about photography and making films/videos, and the class of my daughter used this house to make a horror video some four years ago.
      A dream is to go to Harestølen sanatorium, before they rebuild it as a hotel (yes, there are plans), and now one must pay NOK (150,- I belive) to enter for taking pictures. I guess there's a guy and possibly a woman living up there, who also act as guides.
      You can learn more about this on YouYube or when you Google Harestølen sanatorium.

      Moody pictures indeed!

    I agree with you Sterkoder, safety must be a priority when entering abandoned places. You can never be sure about the construction of the place and whether it can still carry the weight of anyone.

    Harestølen and Chernobyl are two of my dream places to go - and as you say, Harestølen is in the process of being legally transformed into a hotel and/or spa. Plans are indeed moving forward.
