Any abandoned building is always a fascination and a cause to be creeped out just a little bit.
You take somewhere that used to be filled and bustling with activity, mix in the sudden departure of all that activity and the next thing you know you have the potential for nightmare fuel.
Friend of mine that I went to high school with works for a company that cleans out properties after companies buy them so they can get them ready for renovations and repurposing.
About six months ago he had to go through and clean out a school that had been in use in some fashion from the 1920s until the 1990s when the school was forced to close down. It had only been sparingly used in that time since the 1990s on very rare occasions for presentations that required an auditorium and for driver’s education due to its central location in town.
Apart from that, the school sat practically empty except for the supplies that were present the day that it was used for the last time as a permanent school building.
It was scary seeing that once busy center of activity so completely empty with nothing but time capsules strewn all over in the image of old books and classroom materials.
He even told me that there was a roll of toilet paper, still sitting on the roll in one of the restrooms that had been locked up and forgotten about. That being said, there are so many places that have just been abandoned from their original purpose in the world that its almost impossible to count them all.
If you could go on vacation right now, where would you go? A tropical resort? A hotel on the beach? Whatever it might be, this luxury hotel in Croatia is not a destination you want to spend with your family and you’ll soon realize why. Read below to see more about this abandoned Kupari resort.
Kupari is a bay in the Adriatic Sea.
Some say the beaches are some of the best in the world.
In the 1960s, under the rule of Josip Broz, Kupari received a major transformation.
It was designed to be a resort for the military and their families.
The government ended up spending close to a billion dollars on renovations of this resort and its beaches.
The resort was made up of several hotels including The Pelegrin, The Kupari, Goricine, Goricine II, and The Grand Hotel.
The resort could easily accommodate over five thousand guests.
It was a very desirable vacation spot in Europe.
In 1991, all of this luxury took a swift change though.
The beautiful beach was the place for the Croatian War of Independence.
On October 4th, the first shot was fired towards the luxury hotels.
Only twenty short days after the first sound of fire, the war at this, once pristine, beach was over.
But the hotel was ruined.
