Villa Chopin (Belgium)

Abandoned villa with a rich history dating back to the 18th century. Amongst the noble guests who resided in the villa over the years, one stands out: Frédéric Chopin. This Polish composer, well known for his virtuoso Nocturnes, Preludes, and Études, spent the night at the villa during one of his European tours. Today, many rooms of the villa are in a bad state of decay. The frescos in the lounge however, still remind us of the grandeur of its glorious past.
