Amazing abandoned places just waiting to be explored

Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a serious fascination with exploring abandoned structures.  I was the seven-year-old trying to slide down underground drain openings and building forts under cement bridges. As I got older, I discovered a whole community of people who shared the same insane curiosity.

Known as “Urban Explorers”, these hard-core adventurers find interesting, man-made structures to explore, photograph, and document. The hobby often calls for trespassing and coming home at odd hours smelling rank and covered in grimy stains. Urban Explorers face all sorts of dangers in search of beautiful gems such as these photographs. You just never know exactly what you’ll find when you dare to go in these strange places. Our friends at My Science Academy have assembled a stunning collection of 33 of The Most Beautiful Abandoned Places In The World.
