12 Photos of Abandoned Mansions That Might Make Your Heart Stop

Today in abandoned buildings porn we bring you: photos of abandoned European palaces.

Photographer Mirna Pavlovic

is fascinated by “reclaiming places deemed inaccessible and forbidden,” so it’s unsurprising her fascination with abandoned buildings has brought her across Europe.

Her project, entitled “Dulcis Domus,” documents villas, castles and palaces abandoned during World War II. Although many of these photos were shot in Italy — which, as Pavlovic points out, occupied a precarious geographic and political position during the war — several were taken in Belgium, and the project is still ongoing.

Take a look at Pavlovic’s work below, and follow her on Instagram here.
