    The Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea is no longer abandoned actually. They picked up the project and intend to possibly make an official opening next year!

    even more amazing is how the photo turned into a political diatribe

  3. Linda T Gonzalez says:

    The NYC subway station looks lovely; why was it closed?

    • Russ says:

      Because the stop opens up into the basement of city hall, obvious security issues restricts any commuter from walking in – the stop was retired. You can however still go there on a tour. Or you can take the local 6 train downtown to the last stop “Brooklyn Bridge” – stay on the train when the doors open and wait for them to close. Once they close the doors and the train starts moving, getup and look out of train window. City Hall is the next stop.

      • KG2V says:

        Actually City Hall station was NOT closed for security reasons. Back when that line was designed, the IRT ran 4 car trains, and the platform can only FIT 4 cars, and at that, has large “gaps”. As it is only a block or 2 from the Brooklyn Bridge stop, rather than do what they did/do at South St on the 1, they closed the station. The security issue is they WERE going to glass in the tracks, and open a branch of the transit museum there, and that was nixed post 9/11

      Because the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles moved in.

    • brasimetal says:

      because the curve was too dangerous

    I can see why El Hotel del Salto in Colombia is Abandoned. It looks like it is going to fall off a cliff

  5. Carter says:

    […] Malo je besmisleno reći – uživajte, ali svakako pogledajte galeriju na ovom linku. […]

  7. sammy Slapskibergarelli says:

    The Hotel Del Salto has a very disturbing past as it was long used by a local drug cartel as a headquarters and private prison. The Cartel tortured and murdered many people in this location. The locals avoid it and claim it’s haunted by the many tortured souls that are trapped there. if you are in the area you can simply explore it with no worries about anyone caring or asking questions.

    • Colombian truth says:

      The hotel el salto doesn´t have a drug related horrible history. The hotel is abandoned because of the contamination of the river, the smell and the air makes it impossible to breath without hurting your lungs, your nose and your whole body! that´s it…

      • Atsuraelu says:

        Not only does it have no horrible drug related history, it’s not even abandoned anymore. It’s a museum now…

        Was rumored to be haute, though.

    Curious about Nara Dreamland. Looks like it could’ve been fun.
    El Hotel Del Salto seems like it’d be cool to visit, especially considering its past!

  14. John Robinson says:

    These places are FASCINATING! I have never seen any of them. All I kept thinking is that almost all of them would make good sets for a scary movie, especially that hotel in Colombia. (Maybe some of them HAVE been used.)

  23. Jens says:

    The ‘kasteel van Mesen’ is actually a few kilometres away from where I live. In 2010 it was partially demolished and last month the city counsil has decided to demolish the rest of the building. It’s a shame to see such a beautiful building disappear.

    Video of the demolition:
