Abandoned cities, villages and towns of the world - PART 2 - PHOTOS

28 May 2010 [15:35] - TODAY.AZ
As we all know, there are many villages, farms and just lonely houses all around the world but when thousands of people leave, leaving the whole city dead that’s a real tragedy.
This is the second part of the gallery, and here we feature abandoned houses, factories, buildings, some of which were shot right in the center of cities. When you think of ruins, it’s likely that you think of things like old castles, forts, or cottages - run-down pieces of history from long ago. But the world is full of modern day ruins too, from former homes where people couldn’t afford the up-keep to factories no longer in production. In this photostream you can tour photos of abandoned buildings from around the world, getting a glimpse into the not-so-distant past.
