The abandoned maternity

Here we were born

Kneževo, Croatia

Closed in 1981, this abandoned maternity is located in Kneževo in Croatia, near the border of Hungary and only few kilometers away from Serbia.

The village is composed of approximately 960 inhabitants and is located in the county of Osijek-Baranja. Opened in the 1960s, the establishment served as an "outpost" in the south of the county. Before, the maternity was, at the end of the thirties in a beautiful castle named Belje Directorate.

Following mergers and regrouping of services, the Kneževo hospital center closes in the early 1980s. Since then, the building is left to itself, unused and collapsing under the ravages of time.
