Tour Report: Military Hospital J.

The weather that had irritated us a bit on our exploration of the Soviet nuclear weapons depot, calmed down a bit as we were finished there, so we decided together with our friend Torsten from North Urbex to explore another location.

We had an abandoned military hospital on our list, a place that we had planned to check out once before - a plan that at the time was foiled by a patrolling security service on the premises. This time, we weren't going to give up that easily. We checked the area for inconspicuous parking places and found one a little bit remote from the hospital, so our car wouldn't arise any (or not too much) suspicion.

After parking, we started looking for a path through the patch of forest, which we found rather quickly. There were hardly any fences, and the ones that were there had been vandalized and were hardly recognizable anymore. Finding access into the buildings was easy; after all - this is a pretty well-known and much frequented place, so many of the doors and windows were open.

The building was beautiful. The afternoon sun brought a magic light and the colors of summer into the rooms, and cast beautiful shadows on the floors. There were even a few relics to be found - the dentist's chair being the classic scene for this particular location. Another thing that made this place worthwhile was the fact that there were hardly any graffiti to be found. Of course, the copper thieves have had their share, and the vandals have broken most of the windows - but aside from that, it was just natural decay!

We took our time and explored most of the place, until we decided to call it a day and drive back to the hotel for a well-earned beer and a nice little dinner - after all, Torsten still had a rather long drive home ahead of him, and my wife and I needed to gather our strength for the next Soviet military site that we had planned to explore the following day :)
