5.Blue Heron Paper Company | Oregon

Between 1829 and 2011, the Blue Heron Company was a stable and interesting place to work at, providing views of the Willamette Falls, employees had something cool to stare at while providing a much needed service. Paper.

On the other side of the paper mill you can find a hydro electric generation facility that was built in 1888.

The Blue Heron wasn’t the only paper mill near Oregon City, but it was definitely the most famous one.

When the company shut down in 2011, a lot of people were hopeful that it would be only temporary, but by 2014 there was plans for redevelopment. Things are actually moving kind of quick compared to similar projects, so don’t expect this abandoned station to last too long. If you want to visit, do it soon.

4. Berengaria Hotel | Cyprus

Opened in 1931, the Berengaria Hotel in the mountains of Cyprus offered a place to relax and be surrounded by nature. It was definitely not a place for common folk, and it was advertised as a luxury retreat.

Having great amenities including a nightclub and a casino was definitely a plus for anyone that wanted to spend some money while vacationing, however by the 1980s, mismanagement resulted in a fall from grace.

The bad management can be attributed to the fast change in ownership, the original creator of the hotel retired and left the business to his three sons, who in turn, ruined everything.

And of course, lets not forget the 2 ghostly figures that have been spotted by the now empty pool. Is there an abandoned hotel that ISN’T haunted ? I don’t know about you, but this hotel is definitely hauntingly beautiful, what do you think ? Would you spend a night in this now derelict building ?

3.Sacra di San Michele

This is perhaps the most interesting building on our list, and definitely the oldest. This ancient abbey was built between 983 and 987, and its located on the top of mount Pirchiriano, so you can imagine it offers some incredible views.

Although it is definitely not abandoned now, Sacra di San Michele was completely suppressed in 1622. I guess the pope at the time didn’t like the abbey and its close ties to the cult of St. Michael.

The abbey was left to the elements for over 200 years, until the King of Sardinia and the Pope ordered to restore it.

Out of all the places on this list, I would most like to visit this abbey, what about you ? Let me know in the comments below.

2. Florus and Laurus Orthodox Church | Russia

I can’t tell you much about this Church, online research doesn’t help when you are dealing with a dilapidated building that was built in 1803 and was completely abandoned and suppressed by the soviet regime.

Judging by the pictures, there isn’t much time left, without intervention, this orthodox church will definitely not exist 20 years from now.

In the Russian Orthodox Church Saint Florus and Laurus are considered the patrons of horses, mainly due to the fact that when their relics were found, a severe horse plague came to an end.

In the region of Suzdal, you can find many more churches, some still in use, some barely standing. So if you’re into that kind of stuff, have fun !


1.New World Mall | Thailand
Built in 1982, the New World Mall was quite the project. It originally boasted 11 floors of wall to wall shopping, however, the local government had only approved a 4 story building. Its not really clear when the extra stories were torn down, but I think it was in 1997.

At that point, the mall owners decided to abandoned the building and moved on to greener pastures. In 1999, a fire obliterated the roof of the building and slowly but surely, the bottom levels of the New World Mall started filling up with rainwater.

Before anyone figured out what to do with the building, a major mosquito problem was thwarted by introducing fish inside the mall. Not surprisingly, the fish multiplied in number very quickly, and the New World Mall became an urban aquarium with a thriving ecosystem.

At some point, the Thailand Department of Fisheries decided to step in and relocate all the fish to different parts of the country, in an effort to stop curious tourists and locals from entering the condemned building.

Looking at google street view, the building has not been demolished as of May 2017, and I doubt that will change anytime soon. Its kind of crazy to think that it used to be 11 stories tall.

    I think that the Colorado mine was an old silver mine. I'm not sure, but I know I've seen it before before, and there were several "rushes" during the 19th and early 20th centuries up there for precious metals. Most didn't pan out much, but a few were incredible money makers. There are abandoned buildings and mines all over there.
    Evelyn Walsh McLean was the daughter of a school teacher and an Irish miner who lived way up in the Rockies and struck rich. So rich, that he was able to buy the "cursed" Hope diamond. The gargantuan amounts of money they had was more of a curse than anything else, as the kids died from drug overdoses, racing car accidents and suicides. The last owner of the diamond though, never felt it was cursed, and wore it constantly. When it was donated to the Smithsonian, it was mailed there in a regular brown envelope and arrived with no problem….

    That lovely mine in Colorado is the Madonna Mine, located in Monarch Pass! It mined silver, lead, and zinc in its heyday. Very pretty, I highly recommend visiting if you can!
