The estate was intended to be a studio for artist Piotr Kazimierczak, but it became a massive estate with impressive features such as a ballroom and 12 towers dedicated to the 12 apostles.

The castle also has 365 windows symbolizing the total number of days in a year.

Construction began in 1979, but despite his planning, the artist was unable to complete his magnificent palace.

Although he received planning permission for a single-family home and studio, the artist expanded the lot to nearly 54,000 square feet.

In 1991, construction stopped when officials discovered that the artist did not have a permit for the building.

Kazimierczak was forced to abandon his dream home as he ran out of funds and the castle remained unfinished.

He later submitted new applications, but they were rejected.

The castle still stands today, but its walls are about to collapse and its interior is covered in graffiti.

Visitors are warned to go at their own risk.

However, Kazimierczak said in 2017 he was still fighting for his castle and didn’t want to see it demolished.

The project was abandoned in 1991
