Sweden: Urbexing

Fredriksberg is a very small village in the center of Sweden, with around 600 inhabitants. There is no railway station, just one or two buses per day from/to Ludvika.

In the past there lived more people and had been industries in iron, wood and paper. But by the end of the 20th century, the last factories were closed and the village became a tourist resort, with Säfsen Resort as the largest operator. Nowadays the factory buildings are abandoned, desolate and decaying. Photography time!

It was quite easy to get in. Fences had holes, and gates were wide open.

Of course I had to be damn careful where I was walking. But no worries, I stayed close to the gates and avoided the loose-hanging lamps on the ceiling.
