Top 10 Abandoned Places

Abandoned Places | This list of creepy, beautiful and spectacular modern ruins I recently found is really amazing! It includes probably the top 10 abandoned places worldwide and may I should start travelling to one of them every year…

Since the world we live in has been largely mapped and plotted, we urban adventurers turn our sights toward the relics of old and the ruins of the recent past. If you find beauty in urban decay, in the crumbling and abandoned places of yesteryear, you’ll want to read on. (thecoolist.com)

There’s an abandoned submarine station in Balaklava, a lot of ruins in Detroit, the Beelitz Military Hospital near Berlin, the famous City Hall Subway Station in New York City, the Ryugyung Hotel in Pyongyang, the city of Pripyat (also known as Chernobyl Ground Zero), the abandoned beach resort city Varosha on Cyprus, an abandoned water park in Russia, a cathedral ruin in the Indian city Gary and last but not least the British Second World War Sea Forts in the North Sea.
