In Northern Europe, you can discover an abandoned pool in Denmark, a culture house in Norway or a power plant in England. If you are visiting Berlin, then the famous Spreepark is a good distraction from the typical tourist attractions. In south Europe, you can visit Craco, an abandoned town in Italy or the Olympic Hotel in Bosnia. And lastly, the chilling hospital in the US will probably keep you awake for some time. For obvious reasons we cannot give you the exact locations but we encourage you to explore on your own on Instagram with #urbanexploration #abandoned.
