The 102-Year-Old floating forest is located in Homebush Bay, Sydney, Australia. The forest has grown out of the remains of the old SS Ayrfield, which was a large ship used during the Second World War.
When the war ended, the boat was left to rot in the bay, and the trees started to sprout out of it, and the other ships that were left alongside it.
Abandoned Mill, Italy
The Valley of the Mills in Sorrento gives us a clue as to what life would be like without humans.
The mills have also been separated from the sea by the construction of Tasso Square which increased the humidity in the region, causing people to leave in search of a more livable climate.
House Of The Bulgarian Communist Party, Bulgaria
This building which used to be the home of the communist party was shaped like a UFO and is just as intriguing from the inside as it looks from the outside.
The building was only in use for ten years from 1981 – 1991, but with the fall of the communist government, the building was abandoned and neglected.
The town of Kolmanskop in Namibia benefited from the diamond rush in the early 1900s.
The rush ended shortly after the Second World War and the population moved on, leaving the town empty and desolate. It is still a popular site with tourists who like to come to visit and in the hope of finding a diamond in the ruff.
Eastern State Penitentiary
Opened in 1829, the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia was one of the USA’s first modern prisons and remained open until 1971.
Thinking of the types of people who used to walk the halls in a building like this gives it a creepy feel, and now as an abandoned building, you get that feeling twice as much.
