Prepare to be amazed: 30 breathtaking images of abandoned places


There are places on Earth where time seems to have stopped, almost as if certain areas are under a mysterious spell, suspended in a bubble where time has taken a pause.

When seeing these images, I get the notion that no matter how lonely and weak these places may seem, they offer an unprecedented view into our past, while maintaining a sense of reality, and telling their story as proud ‘statues’ that were once teeming with life in an open-air museum maintained by mother nature.

In this article, we’ve gathered 30 amazing images of places all around the world that tell a story like no other article. Courtesy of itsabandoned.
