Wielka szkoda, że wciąż nie udało się nic zrobić z tą gazownią i ciągle niszczeje.

Jeżdżę przy tych gazowniach codziennie do pracy, co raz ktoś tam chodzi, a gazowni coraz mniej. Władze powinny coś z tym zrobić, zabezpieczyć to jakoś.

Marne szanse, żeby kiedyś tym opuszczonym gazowniom przywrócić świetność, chociażby jako apartamentowce - tyle razy próbowano.

Hello I am planning on visiting Poland and this site has quite a bit of information on it but i can't seem to locate a more exact coordinate or information to where the places are at, would you happen to have a map with these locations mapped?

My travels.

As you may have noticed, nothing on this site has been added for some time. But no, I did not leave this project, I'm just busy with others. Currently I am building a website called Fshoq!, where I'm writing a travel blog, where you can find both my new and those old adventures. So if you are waiting for more of my texts or pictures, this is the place I think it is worth looking into. After I will make Fshoq! site more popular, I'm going to get back to Into the Shadows, as I'm having more and more explorations of abandoned places to describe. Meanwhile, see you later!
