Have you ever explored an abandoned place? We have gathered a list of 16 unbelievable abandoned places you will be sure to visit! 16 Most beautiful Abandoned Places 10 - Not something from a Sci Fi movie… This was actually the HQ for the Communist Party in Bulgaria. It looks like a giant flying saucer, and was created by the communist regime as a meeting place. It was active from 1981 to 1991, and then fell into disrepair when the fall of the Soviet Union took place. Apparently they are looking into restoring it. 9 - Old places have soul… And this exquisite abandoned railway station oozes soul. Its location is the former Russian territory known as Abkhazia. It was deserted in the 90’s, more than likely due to blockades imposed by Russia. This type of architecture is known as Stalinist Gothic or Socialist Classicism. 8 - Only memories left behind... This is the Gouqi Island, which forms part of a group of nearly 400 islands called the Shengsi Islands in China. At one stage it was a super busy fishing village, but with the developments of secondary and tertiary industries, many of these little fishing villages didn’t last too much longer, and people left seeking work elsewhere. 7 - Hauntingly Beautiful… Sadly, the stories of what went on inside the Beelitz -Heilstaten hospital are not as hauntingly beautiful as some of the architecture seen in this building. This hospital once had Hitler recovering there for a bit. It saw thousands of TB patients heading through the doors, had murders take place inside, accidental deaths and I’m sure many other atrocities. The Sanatorium is in Brandenburg in Germany, and sees many people breaking in just to capture some of the beauty that the actual building hosts. 6 - A romantic tale… There doesn’t seem to be an exact story as to how the Chatillon Car Graveyard in Belgium came into being, but it’s a breathtaking sight. The cars are surrounded by plants and branches and vines are growing through the vehicles. Reporters say the cars were left in haste, but the romanticized story attached to them is that the cars belonged to US Soldiers, who left them behind when the war finished and they returned home. 5 - Going back in time… This makes me feel like I am right there at this blade mill in France. Not much is given about this exact blade mill, but the sharpening of blades, scythes, sickles, knives and swords took place there. Apparently many grinders died very young due to grinders disease, which is a lung disease more than likely from inhaling the dust when the grinding took place. 4 - No trespassing allowed… It’s all because of one brave girl that we have access to these beautiful images of an abandoned rocket factory in Russia. We only know her as Lana, and she broke into the factory, situated just outside Moscow. As you can imagine, Russian authorities weren’t happy at all, and even posted threatening letters on her website. So a big thank you Lana, for showing us what it looks like on the inside! 3 - A personal journey… This 27-meter-deep well is found in Sintra and is known as the Initiation Well. It’s meant to be lead one on a journey of self-discovery and rebirth. You’re either going into the darkness or coming out into the light. Also could be deemed as death and birth. It was owned by a well-known freemason, who used the wells (there are 2 of them) for ceremonial purposes. They were never used to draw water, and every part of the wells is symbolic in some way. 2 - Ghost Town… Or rather Ghost Subway… this is stunning, the City Hall Subway Station in New York, and was supposed to the showpiece when it came to subway stations. However, a mere 41 years after opening – it was actually closed down. For some reason, traffic at that station saw a rapid decline, and then with the onset of the Great Depression and then WW2, the station wasn’t used at all… so it was shut down. It received landmark status in 1979, and there plans in the pipeline a few years ago to bring it back to life. 1 - History created… This breathtaking Crystal Mill is from 1892, and is actually a decompressor station. Constructed in 1893, it was used as a power plant. This Mill is said to be one of the most photographed sites in Colorado in the US, and has a place on the National Register of Historic Places.

7 - Caleta, Chile - Caleta Tortel is a scenic coastal village located in Chile. It is situated between the mouth of the Baker River, Chile’s largest, and the Baker Channel embayment. The magnificent coastline is surrounded by rugged geography including a number of channels, fjords, and islands. The town itself consists of a number of stilt houses built along the coast. However its most unique feature is that the town contains no roadways. Instead, wooden walkways connect the village, giving it its distinctive look and feel.
6 - Niagra-on-the-Lake, Canada – Niagra-on-the-Lake is located in Southern Ontario Canada. It can be found right where Niagra River meets Lake Ontario and is just across Niagra River from Youngstown New York. Originally called Butlersburg when it was settled in 1781, this town is known for many of its restored military sites, such as Fort George, Butler’s Barracks and Navy Hall. Niagra-on-the-Lake is also attributed to starting many of the province’s institutions, for example the first newspaper, historical museum and parliament. One of the highlights for tourists is the Shaw Festival, which is a showcase of theatrical performances of George Bernard Shaw’s work. It uses three theaters in town and hosts some of the most talented actors and directors.
5 – Shirakawa-go, Japan - The village of Shirakawa-go in Japan is a UNESCO world heritage site, located in the Shogawa river valley. The village if best known for the architecture of its houses, which were built in the gassho-zukuri style. Gassho-Zukuri, or “prayer-hands construction” houses are characterized by their steeply slanting thatched roofs, which resemble two hands joined together in prayer. This design is exceptionally strong, which is necessary to withstand the cold and heavy snowfalls the village receives during the winter months. These large houses, three to four stories tall, are built to house large extended families. The houses are also surrounded by densely forested mountains that occupy over 90% of the available landmass and present unsurpassed views.
4 - Hallstatt, Austria - Hallstatt is a small alpine village, located in Salzkammergut, a region in upper Austria. It is named due to its proximity to the nearby Hallstatt Lake. The town’s claim to fame is that it contains the “world’s oldest pipeline”, which was constructed in the early 1600’s from 13,000 hollowed out trees. Up until the late 19th century, the only way to access Hallstatt was by boat, as the town consumed every available inch of free land between the mountains. Despite its remote location, the area has been home to one of the first human settlements, due to its proximity to rich sources of natural salt. The town has grown up around these deposits, which have been mined by the townspeople for thousands of years.
3 – Eze, France - The village of Eze, located in France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the neighboring mountains. It was founded around 600 BC by shepherds who created a settlement. Part of the French Riviera, this small medieval village is famous for its beauty and charm and is world renowned for the panoramic view of the sea afforded from its hill top. It is so popular with tourists and honeymooners that some have dubbed it the “museum village.” Walt Disney made many trips to Eze and was often inspired by its beauty.
2 - Kastelorizo Island, Greece – Kastelorizo Island is located on the Mediterranean Sea and has become a popular tourist spot in recent years. This spike in tourism is partly due to the 1991 Oscar-winning film, Mediterraneo being filmed there. The most eastern of the Greek islands, Katelorizo is primarily limestone and because it has little plant life, the result is many beautiful sea caves. The houses of the island are skinny and are recognized by their wooden balconies overlooking the water. The culture and traditions on the island are influenced largely by Muslim customs.
1 - Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic – Known as the “Castle City” of the Czech Republic, Cesky Krumlov is a medieval village with winding roads that twist around the Cesky Krumlov castle. The castle and town was constructed in 1240 and old Czech legend translates the name to mean “crooked meadow.” German miners began settling in the village in the late 15th century when gold was found near the town. It fell into disrepair during the Communist era of Czechoslovakia, but the beauty has since been restored since the Velvet Revolution of 1989.
