Top 5 cool abandoned places

Tired of the usual tourist traps when you go on vacation?

Looking to impress your mate with a trip to some place unique?

Here are the top 5 cool abandoned places to consider for your next holiday trip or weekend getaway:


Château Miranda or Château de Noisy

The Château Miranda or “Noisy Castle” is located in Celles, Belgium.  It was built the English architect Milner for the Liedekerke-Beaufort family in 1866.  During World War II it was converted into an orphanage but has been abandoned since 1991.  The family refused to let the municipality of Celles take charge of the property and is now in a derelict state.



Kasteel van Mesen

Kasteel van Mesen or Castle Messines is located in Lede, Belgium.  It was built during the ninth century as part of the four-structure fortification to help residents defend themselves against the Normans.  It later became a boarding school after World War I.  The school shut down in 1971.  The buildings were neglected until 1999.  The residents decided to demolish the structures and build a park and senior nursing home.  Special interest groups are currently trying to have what still stands preserved.



Nara Dreamland

The Nara Dreamland is located in Japan.  This was once a theme park designed to imitate Disneyland in California.  It was built in 1961.  Despite the fact that the amusement park had several noteworthy rides and its own mascots, the business failed and it was closed in the summer of 2006.



je0qMcbRyugyong Hotel

The Ryugyong Hotel is in Pyongyang, North Korea.  Construction on what is to be a 105-floor, pyramid-shaped building in 1987.  A downturn in the economy following the fall of the Soviet Union halted construction.  It resumed again in 2008.  While the outer structure was said to have been completed last year the opening of the hotel was been postponed several times.


AHma5OEhCity Hall Subway Station

The City Hall Subway Station in New York, New York was built in 1904 and unlike some other abandoned sites is well preserved.  The station was closed in 1945 because of an unsafe gap in the platform created by the loop and it was, at best, only used by approximately 600 people daily.  Restoration plans were drawn up in 1995 to make it part of the transit museum but were voted down a few years later.  Still closed to the public, clever New Yorkers suggest that those interested in seeing the site not exit the subway train before it makes the loop but remain seated and keep going.

Now you all have some cool abandoned places to visit on your next holiday!  Check them out!
