360 degrees views of abandoned buildings in Europe

These are the stunning 360 degree images of Europe’s abandoned buildings that will get your head in a spin. Sven Fennema, 33, captured the incredible shots, which include a forgotten villa and casino in northern Italy and abandoned churches in Poland.

The photographer, from Krefeld, near Dusseldorf, then transformed the stunning landmarks into eye-catching panoramic images. His images also include a panoramic view of a hotel ballroom belonging to an abandoned sanatorium in Germany and an old wintercircus in Belgium.

He said: “360 degree panoramas are dear to my heart because I am able to invite visitors to follow me interactively on one of my trips and to see where my works are created. “It is not possible to show these panoramic views as pictures in the classical way, because an interactive view is impossible.
