Throughout history, we remember some of the strangest and most impressive archaeological finds to have bee unearthed. Tales of the pyramids and the ancient worlds of Greece and Rome abound and often, it can feel like there is no mystery left in the world any more.
It turns out, we’re just getting started. There are dozens of weird finds out there waiting to be discovered and each day, people stumble across places which haven’t been entered for decades. These abandoned places were all but forgotten until someone happened to wander into their walls and trust us when we say that they’re more than a little creepy.
Spoils of the Cold War can be found the world over and if you look a little closer at Eastern Europe and Russia, you might be surprised at what you will find. Balaklava in the Ukraine was once a top secret submarine base, with a huge amount of activity. Built into a cliff face, the now abandoned base once contained deadly warheads and secret submarines.
No Mans Land Fort, The Solent
A relic of the Second World War, No Mans Land Fort in offshore England has been left abandoned since 2004. Once used as a mode of protection, the fort was later bought up and converted into a luxury home and hotel venue for the rich. Following a deadly outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease, however, the fort was left abandoned, sitting derelict in the sea.
