Duga Radar in Chernobyl is a tall wall or arch that was built as a secret object in the Soviet Union. It was built as an Anti-ballistic missile early warning network. Because of the nuclear incident in Chernobyl, the project was put on hold and then closed.
If you’re a crazy daredevil you can see this structure in the zone of exclusion. Do you enjoy entertainment? Hold on for this next abandoned building.

Government Funding


The Orpheum Theatre was originally closed to the poor. It was only open to the wealthy who could visit the theatre and see the live shows.
Now, this building stands empty, due to zero government funding. It closed in 1959 and if you like you can go in and see it.
However, some say the next town is the scariest place to visit in the USA — the Ghost Town of Kolmanskop.

Dead City


This dead city appeared in 1908 when a humble worker found a shiny stone under his feet. People rushed to the area believing that it was rich in diamonds.
It soon turned out that there weren’t as many diamonds as people thought there might be. Soon everybody started to leave the town which started sinking into the desert.
Do you enjoy haunted hospitals?

Mental Hospital


A mental hospital called Lier Sykehus has 4 buildings that have been abandoned since 1985 and for some reason, doctors didn’t want to work in the buildings. Apparently, 2500 people had undergone lobotomies in this hospital.
The buildings still have patients’ personal belongings, journals and medical equipment lying around as the buildings decay there.

Plagued Place


Plague Island, located in the North of Italy, is sometimes referred to as one of the scariest places on our planet. In 1777 about 160,000 died there from the plague.
Plague Island was forgotten until somebody decided to use the island as a psychiatric hospital. However, that also closed down in 1968.
