Psychiatric Ward in Gdańsk - Oliwa

This place is considered to be one of the most creepy abandoned buildings in Poland. The mental institution was a part of still existing Navy Hospital in Gdańsk old district Oliwa. The vintage villa (one of many other buildings that type in this neighborhood), located on the Navy Hospital's premises, was used as a mental institution between 1970's and 1990's. Since then the building has been forsaken, and unfortunately as many other spots that sort, was (and still is) being devastated by bums and squatters, so most of the interesting artifacts are long gone. The site is quite a challenge to enter as it's surrounded by fully functional hospital buildings, guarded by security and medical staff. Which obviously makes it even more thrilling :)
