Due to radiation, it has been left untouched ever since the incident and will be for many thousands of years into the future. Nature now rules the city in what resembles an apocalyptic movie.

4. Ryugyong Hotel – Pyongyang, North Korea

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA Source: wikipedia.orgThe Ryugyong Hotel is a true display of North Korea’s madness. Work started on this 105 story hotel only a few years before a massive famine plagued the country. Abandoned for 16 years, work once again began in 2008, when it was coated in $150 million worth of glass. Foreign guests have reported that although the structure now looks complete on the outside, a lot of the interior is still abandoned and incomplete.

By its closure, most patients were eventually integrated back into society, but in the early days “people didn’t leave unless it was in a box.”
