33 Deserted Places Around the World

These forsaken relics of another time are strangely beautiful.

From Australia to Argentina, the globe is peppered with lonely, weather-worn ruins that linger like empty shells of their former selves. These rusting ghost towns, forgotten theme parks, and overgrown houses are frozen in time, abandoned by the humans who built them. They now stand like haunting reminders of livelier days, offering a fascinating glimpse back in time, before they were left behind.
