Abandoned street, Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic
Visited 4.10.2013 by jonahi. I read from this whole street lined by abandoned blocks of flats from internet. It had previously been inhabited by gypsies, and in the late 1990's the city council had built a high wall between the gypsy houses and the houses on the other side of the street inhabited by Czech people. Sounds a bit brutal to me to try to build a ghetto for the Romans at that time, but the city officials were blaming the noise and other disturbances that they made. However, the wall was quite rapidly decided to tear down. Nowadays these houses stand as empty skeletons on the edge of the city, and I have to admit that I was a bit nervous because of the combination of my camera and some of the wandering dumpster divers and other shady characters hanging around there. The houses had basically nothing but rubbish inside, all the floors had crashed down and the insides were completely destroyed. Some of the apartments still had nice wallpapers though. I liked the street view the most, it was very impressive, but the atmosphere was a bit too restless, telling me that this place is not anywhere near as forgotten.
