  1. It is a crime that such a magnificent building lies abandoned.

    1. I find it very moving in this state and will be unmoved by it when it is refurbished.

    2. We'll never know if your hypertrophied taste for decadence is a genuine philosophical/esthetic choice or just Schadenfreude.

      Judging after your active complacency with ukip, fargage, brexit i am inclined to the last hypothesis: Schadenfreude as a late revenge feeling upon the old ungrateful homeland.

  2. Always thought the exterior worth looking at - a collage of snobbery that misses its point by so much, it makes its own sense, & the interior painfully quaint ...

  4. I know you wouldn't agree with this, but I think the best thing would be to sell it off to the highest bidder, who would probably convert it into a mall, or whatever is fashionable these days. I would do the same with the Palace of the Parliament, as an ultimate middle finger to communism - imagine it being a large mall, which would indeed bring it closer to its role as the "House of the People".

    1. I warmly agree with you about the "House of the People" and have often said so. And why not the Casino too? Though I like it as it is. 'There's a fascination frantic/In a ruin that's romantic.'
