View from the roof of the tallest building of the abandoned factory in which I talked about a few posts ago. . To have a little perspective of how big it is: the cooling and water tower in the back on the factory's grounds. The whole complex is around 10 ha. . . . #abandoned #bucharest #urban #urbanexploration #urbex #romania #danger #dangerous #complex #buildings #old #communistera #90s #2000s #beautiful #panorama #panoramas #decay #abandonedplaces #abandonedearth #clouds #explorer #house #nature #urbexphotography #wood #rusty #rustysteel #industrialrevolution

Book Recommendation ✍️ . Set in Romania in the 1970s, Bottled Goods takes us into the communist regime where Alina and her husband along with many others living in the country are being targeted and hounded by the secret service to follow their orders. When Alina's brother-in-law defects to the West, she becomes 'person of interest' along with her husband. Faced with extensive interrogation in every walk of life, Alina, a mathematics teacher, finds herself living in constant fear and despair. A perfect example of life in Stalinist regime is shown when Alina does not report a student allegedly carrying contraband in school to the secret service authorities. She is kept under constant surveillance, and harassed. It gives us a glimpse of what life was like when you had no autonomy over your mind & body. You weren't allowed to think, to feel, to go places without first being interrogated. At this point, Alina turns to her Aunt Theresa for help. Wife to a communist leader, Aunt Theresa helps Alina hatch an escape plan. She's also secretly into traditional Romanian magic which she uses whenever the need arises. Sophie has done an excellent job at combining folklore with magical realism. Alina's overbearing mother and their strenuous relationship takes a different, horrifying shape and I'm still recovering from it. What set apart this book for me was finding out it was written in a series of flash fiction and then made into a book. The unconventional style of the author coupled with hypnotic prose and beautiful storytelling make it stand out. There are 51 short stories each connected to one another yet completely capable of being stand alones. Although I found the ending to be a tad bit rushed, I still can't get over how brilliantly executed this book is. . This book was also longlisted for Women's Prize for Fiction 2019. . What are you reading this month? Have you read Bottled Goods? . #booksandteaareviews #booksandteaarecommends #bookreview #womensprizeforfiction #longlist #bottledgoods #indianblogger #bookblogging #communistera #stalinistregime #romania #readingislife

The main building at Moara lui Assan steam mill. You can clearly see the 1800's industrial revolution architecture.

Quick view from the roof of a building at Moara lui Assan steam mill in Bucharest. It was closed in the late 90's or early 2000's and it's one of the most well-known abandoned buildings in Bucharest. You can see it trough the communist-era blocks with the main building's architecture (industrial revolution: early to mid 1800's). #abandoned #bucharest #urban #urbanexploration #urbex #romania #danger #dangerous #complex #buildings #old #communistera #90s #2000s #beautiful #panorama #panoramas #decay #abandonedplaces #abandonedearth #clouds #explorer #house #nature #urbexphotography #wood #rusty #rustysteel #industrialrevolution

urbanexplorationbucharest. Filantropia Hospital in Bucharest. If you Google it, it's not abandone

Filantropia Hospital in Bucharest. If you Google it, it's not abandoned because only a part of it (the old building, made in the XX century) is abandoned. This is how it looks from the street. (The guard didn't let me in. There is a parking lot in front of the hospital and it's usually guarded and I had my scooter with me so I couldn't enter trough the broken windows. Sorry) Tomorrow there will be photos from the inside since I'm going right there after school and without the scooter. #abandoned #bucharest #urban #urbanexploration #urbex #mountain #romania #danger #dangerous #complex #buildings #old #communistera #90s #2000s #beautiful #panorama #panoramas #decay #abandonedplaces #abandonedearth #clouds #explorer #house #nature #urbexphotography #wood #rusty #rustysteel #hospital

An truly horrifying palace. You can see it on Google maps as "Palatul Adevarul". Unfortunately today one of the guards from the nearby hotel came to us and told us to go away. I will post photos from the inside, but they are a bit old (2-3 months ago). This photo was taken today, trough the wooden barricade at the entrance. #abandoned #bucharest #urban #urbanexploration #urbex #mountain #romania #danger #dangerous #complex #buildings #old #communistera #90s #2000s #beautiful #panorama #panoramas #decay #abandonedplaces #abandonedearth #clouds #explorer #house #nature #urbexphotography #wood #rusty #rustysteel
