AROUND THE WORLD
Be it a horror movie or a post-apocalyptic show, the eerie images of what was once a settlement full of life could feel truly uncanny and give us a chill down the spine. Although, away from our regular hustle and bustle of everyday life, such small towns exist all around the world.
Ghost towns are abandoned settlements, usually ones that contain substantial visible remains. There are many reasons why a town becomes a ghost town, like economic decline, war, natural disasters, or pollution. These abandoned places are usually completely uninhabited.
However, some ghost towns have very small populations. Some of the towns are restricted, and access to them is at times forbidden, while others are turned into tourist attractions or parks. Scroll down below to see some of the most interesting ghost towns and scary places around the world.
Clancy's comment: Some of these are incredible, and many would make wonderful holiday homes. What a waste, eh?
