It's still a gorgeous looking building, even though it is probably empty inside.

Yep, and hopefully it's still there, because they just demolished the hippodrome that was next to it, but I don't think they'll demolish this one

I can understand if a building is too dangerous to be kept open, but I hope they stay standing (as long as it's not literally crumbling, or if it has historical significance).

I agree, but unfortunately the hippodrome they demolished was in a really good state and could have been reconverted very easily...

Yeah, it's nice to restore old buildings, and it's also easier than constructing another.

This was the royal lodge. This is were the royal family watched the races on this old hippodrome, now it's left decaying, and finally accessible to the public... ;-)
