  Paprocka Steel Factory - window grating
by matcrazy1

It's completely off the beaten path place. I'm sure that no foreigner visit it yet.
It's located in old Paprocany district of my hometown Tychy.
Paprocka Steel Works was established in Paprocany in 18th century. Until 1878 in excavated and processed iron ores. A heading left by the plant was flooded by the Gostynka river to form Lake Paprocanskie. Currently, the former steel works buildings are owned by the city and are testimony to the early industrial activity in the area - there is small museum here, just nothing but if you love nowhere...
