Earlier this week, we published an article about an incredible, abandoned village in Kazakhstan that one lucky traveller stumbled on by complete chance.
Click here to see that article in full. Read an excerpt of the article below:
“We explored for at least two hours. On more than one occasion I got lost inside these buildings. Maybe that should have terrified me but it didn’t. I knew I’d eventually find my way out, and there’s a real peace in the emptiness of places like that one. It’s hard not to feel comparatively full in a place so empty of everything.”
This incredible story got me thinking about abandoned spaces. The world is full of them, and they really are incredible.
Riffing on this abandoned spaces theme, we scoured the internet for the best pictures of them we could find. This search led me to the Instagram account @itsabandoned. If you’re not following this account you should be. To put it simply, this account has the most beautiful pictures of abandoned spaces I have ever seen. Looking at these pictures, you can almost hear the dripping of water, and the echo of footsteps across the debris-covered ground.
See a few of our favorite pictures from this account below, and be sure to give the account a follow!
Like we said, these photos are absolutely amazing. Credit the amazing photographers behind them.
