Ever wondered what a brutalist style dormitory from the communist era looks like? There's one right in my neighborhood - the dormitory of the faculty of dental medicine at Sofia's Medical University. It's a perfect representation of Bulgaria's healthcare system, as well as a wonderful (well, depending on what type of photographer you are) subject for photography.
Danger - No Trespassing. The dormitory is surrounded by barbed wire and there are a few of these signs attached with cable ties.
I don't think the building has ever been renovated - the holes and cracks in the concrete make me think that it is soon about to collapse. The fact that people lived here until three-four years ago is bizarre.
The dorm was also home to a pharmacy, a small supermarket, and a lousy restaurant. I never visited the latter.
That used to be a sofa. It's been there for quite some time now.
*Some of the windows are broken. Here and there, I can see jars on the sills, but I am not sure if they are empty or filled with rotten food. *
My grandmother had such a broom.
I climbed that staircase once when I went to the pharmacy.
I don't have an explanation for this.
Even the ivy is decaying...
I must check if there's a way to sneak inside the building for It'd be cool to take photos of the empty rooms and corridors.
Thanks for dropping by!
