The Saint Nicholas Church was built in 1850, but has been abandoned for about 100 years. When Lake Mavrovo, which is manmade, was created, a dam filled the surrounding area with water. However, since the area has experienced droughts in recent years, it is possible for visitors to enter the the ruins of the church.

City Methodist Church, Gary, Indiana

This church has been used in several movies, including "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Transformers 3." City Methodist Church (Gary, Indiana)/Wikipedia
The crash of the steel industry hit Gary, Indiana, hard in the 1970s. This economic depression resulted in the abandonment of many once-popular buildings, including the City Methodist Church.

The church reportedly cost a whopping $1 million to build back in 1926, which would be about $7 million by today's standards. However, despite all the work that went into building the beautiful English Gothic style church, the parish officially closed in 1975.

Since its closure, the City Methodist Church has not gone entirely untouched. The site has acted as a shooting location for several movies, including "A Nightmare on Elm Street," "Transformers 3," and "Pearl Harbor."

The Waverly Hills Sanatorium acted as a hospital in which patients with tuberculosis were quarantined in the early 1900s, although the building that still stands today was not completed until 1926.

The hospital operated until 1961, when an antibiotic that cured tuberculosis was discovered. Today, many people believe that the site is haunted. Visitors can participate in ghost tours, haunted houses, and laser light shows on the hospital grounds.

Bodie, California

This ghost town will take you back to the Wild West.

Bodie, California is just a few hours south of the popular vacation town of Lake Tahoe, but it feels like a step back in time to the Old West.

This ghost town, which is now a state park, had its heyday during the California gold rush in the late 19th century. Today, the park aims to keep the town as authentic as possible.

Every summer, the park offers nighttime ghost tours that take visitors to Bodie's church and 106-year-old abandoned mill.

Located in Berlin, Teufelsberg ("Devil's Hill") is a man-made hill built out of rubble after World War II.

During the Cold War, the dome-like structures were added and used as US listening stations. Antennas and satellite dishes were built on the site in order to intercept radio signals from East Berlin.

I drove by this every single day going and coming from work.

New York State Pavilion, Flushing Meadows, New York

The futuristic-looking structures that stand in Flushing Meadows Corona Park actually date back to the early 1960s, when they were built for the New York World's Fair in 1964.

A dream team of architects, including Philip Johnson, Richard Foster, and Lev Zetlin, designed the complex, which includes observation towers, a theater, and a tent that once had a cable suspension roof.

While the fairgrounds have been empty for decades, a massive restoration of the complex that will make it suitable for visitors is underway, and is set to be completed by 2019.
