Most Haunting Abandoned Places On Earth



Michigan Central Station - Detroit, Michigan. Built through 1912 and 1913, Central Station served as the passenger rail depot for Detroit and was the tallest train station in the world. With the closure of the line in 1988, Central Station fell into disuse and all restoration plans have failed.

Underwater City - Shicheng, China. Shicheng has been under water for 53 years since the Xin'an River Hydro Plant flooded the area. The city was founded 1,300 years ago.

Orpheum Auditorium - New Bedford, Massachusetts.  This Auditorium opened on the same day that the Titanic sunk, April 15th, 1912. A supermarket now occupies some of the building, but the rest remains beautifully deserted.

20.

 

City Hall Station - New York City,  was built in 1904 and closed in 1945 as only around 600 people used it only a daily basis.

19.

 

Canfranc Rail Station, Spain, was part of an international railway route through Spain and France. An accident in 1970 destroyed a nearby bridge and ended international rail links between the two countires, leaving Canfranc deserted.

12.

Pripyat, Ukraine, a city of nearly 50,000, was totally abandoned after the nearby Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. Due to radiation, it has been left untouched ever since the incident and will be for many thousands of years into the future. Nature now rules the city in what resembles an apocalyptic movie.
