Abandoned Beauty

[Insert joke about the title here]. Here are some amazing photos I found by… someone. It didn’t really say. If you don’t believe me look for yourself here. They are of some amazing abandoned sights around the world.

Abandoned Submarine base, Ukraine

City Hall Subway Station, New York

Abandoned Water Park, Russia

Abandoned British Sea forts, North Sea

This last picture is very interesting. Here is the information given about it,

During the Second World War, the British Royal Navy constructed a series of sea forts for an advanced line of defense against inbound air raids and potential sea invasions from the Axis powers.  The Maunsell Sea Forts still stand today, silent and abandoned a few meters above the North Sea.  One, however, remains inhabited, now a nation of its own referred to as the Principality of Sealand.  These sea forts are a favorite of maritime explorers, a lonely collection of stilted fortresses not far off the coast of eastern England.
