Gdynia, Poland

Hotel Zdrowie

A haunting deserted hotel is a favorite with artists and photographers. 

Overlooking the Baltic sea is a beautifully haunting deserted hotel which, since its abandonment a few years ago, has transformed into the dystopian photographers dream. Dozens of street artists have paid a visit to leave their mark on the walls, and the site is frequented by locals and tourists alike, all eager to see the untouched remains of a once thriving “sanatorium.” 

Know Before You Go

- The nearest train station is Gdynia Orłowo. Head down towards the seafront and to the north of the pier there is a road leading up to the hotel. There may be metal sheets blocking off the entrance, but there is usually one or two panels that have been bent or kicked down to make access.
- The site has no upkeep, so there are a number of health and safety hazards, e.g smashed glass on the floor, so enter at your own risk!
