Beautiful Decay

As a adamant fan of beautiful decay and impermanence, I am always watching to find new ruins that move my soul.

The great collapse of 1991 had broken the childhood dreams of this Soviet Sanatorium/Hotel to ever welcome visitors into its corridors.
Due to an economic collapse, upon near completion of this Soviet Sanatorium/Hotel in 1991, all funding was stopped and the building was left to the elements.

Windows shattered, weeds and moss grew in the dining hall, and crayon-colorful walls spilled out into the staircases.

Now the ruined building stands as a windowless skyscraper, surrounded by forests and small villages. But its beauty lives on...
