EXPORING THE OLD UNIVERSITY OF IOANNINA CITY
The past days I visited my hometown to spend Christmas with my family. I am from Ioannina, a northwest city of Greece. The house that I grew up is facing an impressive old abandoned building, the old university of Ioannina. I remember when we were kids and playing at our neighborhood we were always curious about that building, wanted to explore what was inside but we were forbidden to approach. As you imagine an exploration of an abandoned building like this for kids is a whole scenario on their minds so we had done a lot of attempts to get in but every time we were getting caught by our parents. As I was getting older that desire of exploration had left my mind and actually never took the chance to do it...until yesterday!
So I woke up in the morning called my boyfriend @knowhow92 and persuaded him to follow me on the exploration.
From stories that I have heard for my grandma who lives for over 60 years at the neighborhood, the university built at 1964.
It was actually the fourth university that built in Greece.
Back then there were only 3 or 4 different departments at the building.
In 1994 the university moved to another place of the city cause there was not enough space for all the new departments that had opened. Since then the building was abandoned like this until today.
Let's start the tour floor to floor.
The tour at the old university of Ioannina ends here. I don't have many informations or any kind of urban myth to share with you about it but mostly a ton of images through my eyes. Exploring and photograph an abandonded building like this was something I really enjoyed doing. It also inspired me for some photoshootings that I have on my mind for a long time so I might come back again for another project. Exploring the building had no risk at all, it is actually a free space with no prohibitions so I had plenty of time to walk around and take some clicks. I can say for sure that it was an awesome experience and inspired me to try exploring new abandoned buildings in the future, maybe prohibited ones for some more suspense hehe.
Thank you all for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my post guys.
Have a good day and some better exporations stories!
It was a fun day hehehe! Urban sh*t at it's finest!!!
Yey totally agree @knowhow92!
Actually looking forward to arrange the next photography project there!😃
WOW! I love abandoned places and even more when they are intervened artistically, because between that and the passage of nature to recover what belongs to it, an incredible scenario is generated. I really enjoyed these beautiful photographs, it definitely makes for a great photo session.
On the other hand, what a pity that they have left such a large place in disuse. Abandoned places also make me feel nostalgic, thinking that they could give enough work to those who need it and opportunities for many others. Bad decisions I guess.
In the meantime, I'm glad they got to explore it now as adults. Everything looks great, it was worth the visit ❤️.
Actually you put it so right about the connection of an abandoned place with the nature. I love it too when nature bloom and intercede ruins, it creates something really artistic and unique.😊
I agree about the disuse of the building, especially because it is located on the center of the city and could be transformed into something useful for citizens. From years to years I had heard that is would be rebuild in order to house social services but it was propably only rumors.
Thank you for your comment @lauramica ❤️
I love how bright this place is! It is in ruins but it transmits me something positive hehehe.
Yeah I know what you are talking about, I had the same feelings while walking it.
