This is definitely a nice shot. The lighting is really beautiful, plus your "subject" was a great choice. You captured just how opulent this place is. The angle here is very interesting as well. I'd like it if you could get just a little more of the staircase, but given how much you did get, I think you're fine. It's interesting how you can still see into the next room as well. Pictures of the interiors of these old mansions are becoming very common, but this one stood out greatly. I think it has a lot to do with how serene this picture is, you don't get a sense of hecticness or of it being a tourist trap. It's just calm and simple, which I think is also a good part of this pic. Great job!
What do you think?

You are lucky to have such locations to explore, though places like this which still seem to have hope and beauty , I'm always hopeful someone will do something useful with them and make them beautiful again, not that they aren't beautiful in death, but perhaps there is a bit of Frankenstein in me where I want to see things live again, even if not as their former selves.

What was there? Villa o hotel? Maybe castle? I'm not going to find this place, I'm just so confused that such a wonderful building is forgotten and abandoned. I 'm not asking about location, I'm asking - what was there?
Such a mess, in my country there also are such a beautiful and historical places which are appreciated only by photographers and urban explorers. It's a bonus for explorers, give us shots and trips but what it gives for goverments? Like black holes. Long time ago there was a glory. There was a shiny live. But now these places are dreaming like Sleeping Princess. Waiting for kisses. So beautiful, so sad.
Lucky you! And lucky place. It looks very clean, very loved. Without vandalism.
