104 Most Fascinating Forgotten Places Shared on “Abandoned World” Facebook Page

Misty hills. Lonely forest roads. Lots of vines, moss, and bare trees. And the cherry on top – a beautiful abandoned building that oozes wonder and grandeur in equal measure. There is our dream home. Especially if the place looks distressed.

gave ‘Abandoned World’ The Facebook page captures this particular mood very well. The social media project celebrates beautiful abandoned buildings with their decay, and shows us how different everything looks when there’s no soul (well, okay, not alone).human being) around. Check out the best photos, remember to vote for your favorite, and tell us in the comments which of these buildings you’d love to live in.

Before we delve into all the cute photos, let’s get one thing straight, pandas. Moving into abandoned buildings may be illegal. But above all else: it can be incredibly dangerous. Prioritize your health and safety, always be prepared, never go alone, and don’t take any dumb risks. Adventure is cool. Being trapped under rubble is not.

The ‘Abandoned World’ project has 336k followers, and it’s clear why they’re so popular: the photos they share are absolutely stunning. Even if you’re a huge fan of the whole dark academia aesthetic like we are, you can’t deny that the images practically exude an eerie vibe.

For a moment, they take us somewhere else. A place where we are seriously considering whether we can fix this place up and live in our dream home. Are ghosts included in the price or do we have to pay extra for them?

In addition to this burning desire to get in immediately, we also have a great desire to explore these places. They look fantastic from the outside, but our curiosity wants us to step inside and see what secrets we can uncover.

Playing Dungeons & Dragons meets most of our adventure needs, but there comes a time when you really want to explore a castle like a real-life hero. This is where urban research comes into play. Also known as urbex or UE, the name pretty much says it all: you explore abandoned urban spaces. This can be highly illegal (depending on the country and the particular building) and very dangerous, so there are a few things you need to be aware of.

Look, the fact is you have to respect the law. You may be trespassing on someone else’s property, even if that property is huge, dilapidated, and neglected for decades and decades. Be aware that you may have to deal with law enforcement. Be polite. Be respectful. Apologize. Understand that they are also concerned about your safety.

Recommends ‘Jetset Times’. Getting the right gear. Start by getting some proper shoes. You’re going to encounter a lot of dirty, dirty, dirty places, so get yourself some sturdy, waterproof boots. Abandoned spaces are, of course, abandoned, so you’ll also need lighting. Bring a spare flashlight and some extra batteries just in case.

Meanwhile, make sure you are never exploring these places alone. Let at least one person go on the adventure with you. That way, you can help each other or call for help if one of you gets hurt. What’s more, when you find someone besides yourself, they can help you avoid any potential danger areas. Two sets of eyes really are better than just one.

You can expect plenty of creaky, rotten floors as well as unstable walls and broken windows as you walk, crawl, and squeeze through your quest. It bears repeating: Your safety is paramount. Don’t take stupid risks when you don’t have to. Find alternative routes. When in doubt, take the safest route. You’re one bad step away from turning your urban adventure into an urban nightmare, so stay focused.

Meanwhile, ‘Killer Urbex’ emphasizes the site. Start by doing your research on the new building you’re looking for. Find out when it was abandoned, the general layout and condition of the place. The better prepared you are in advance, the more dangers you can avoid. Part of your research will undoubtedly be a thorough reading of the violation laws in your local area.

While many of us might rush to run around and find every imperfect and God-forsaken space we can get our hands on (really thick gloves, remember to pack a pair of pandas), beginners. Should really slow it down and steady

(Most definitely upset) mines and sewers. Do your experiment bit by bit. Don’t try to run before crawling. And yet – safety first!

In addition to your gloves, boots, flashlight, and batteries, you’ll also need some water, a first-aid kit, a fully charged cell phone, and a respirator (to keep asbestos, mold, and dust out of your lungs). Should be brought along. ).

The palace complex began as a medieval fort to protect the trade routes through the Valley of Knowledge. Today, it still reflects the division into outer and central courtyards. Surrounded by a ring wall, still partially preserved, it still contains the ruins of a palace and a fort. Their residential building is of Romanesque origin and was rebuilt in the 16th century. The 27-meter-high fort, also known as the “Fate Tower”, has been available as an observation tower since 2002.

Tell someone you trust where you (and your friend!) are going… and learn to trust your gut. If you feel like something is too risky or doesn’t feel right, take a step back, regroup, and consider cutting the outing short. Heck, even if you don’t go inside, you can take some really nice pictures of the outside. Photos are definitely worth sharing!

Rocca Calascio, L'aquila, Italy

According to the famous international magazine National Geographic, Rocca Calascio is one of the most beautiful castles in the world.

The fortress of Rocca Calascio, located 1460 meters above sea level, is one of the highest fortresses in Italy and dominates the valley of Tereno and the plains of Navigli. Its system was intended for military use only and is characterized by the ability with which it manages to blend in with the surrounding impregnable terrain, to which it is not subject at all. It is obvious that their position is quite favorable from a defensive point of view. The structure, in very white stone, has a square plan: its four cylindrical towers at the corners are quite sloping and in the center there is a square keep, the innermost military defense of the castle.
