Built in 1961, Nara Dreamland was inspired by California's Disneyworld in the US, but it fell into disrepair after closing in 2006 due to dwindling visitor numbers, according to Atlas Obscura.

Centralia, Pennsylvania

Centralia has been on fire for over 50 years.

Until 1962, Centralia was just like any other coal mining town in central Pennsylvania. However, after a fire at a landfill spread to several local mines, the town became uninhabitable.

Garnet, Montana

These log cabins in Montana have stood the test of time. MISHELLA/Shutterstock
Many mining towns were built quickly and cheaply in order to allow miners to start working as soon as possible. This was the case in Garnet, Montana, a 19th century town that was once home to 1,000.

Garnet is now known as Montana's best-preserved ghost town, and log cabins, schools, and saloons that were once home to gold miners and their families can be explored for only $3. There are campgrounds nearby for people looking to get an overnight experience.

Craco survived earthquakes and landslides before being abandoned in 1991. Stee/Shutterstock
This hillside ghost town was founded in the 8th century, and sits on a cliff that's 1,312 feet off the ground. The city emptied due to various natural disasters. In 1963, many evacuated after a landslide; in 1972 a flood made conditions even more precarious; and in 1980 an earthquake caused the town to be abandoned in its entirety.

A locked gate surrounds the city, so visitors must book a guided tour. Thanks to a miraculously unscathed statue of the Virgin Mary, the town hosts various religious festivals throughout the year. And despite the fact that the area is a ticking time bomb, the city has been used for several films, including "Passion of the Christ."

Located in northeastern Spain near the French border, the Canfranc International Railway Station was once a luxurious and architecturally beautiful stop for those traveling Europe by train.

However, the station was taken over by the Nazi regime in the early 1940s, halting regular travel. After World War II, a train crash in the 1970s damaged the tracks, causing another closure.

This empty boys school in Berkshire, New York, has been abandoned since the late '80s, after a high-profile child abuse case came out and forced the school's closure.

A photographer who visited the building told Daily Mail, "I felt emotional as I walked around. I wondered what terrible things had happened in the rooms which are now eerily empty. It's horrible to even imagine."

Four former staff members have since been jailed, and the building remains in creepy ruins.

Most of the buildings in Letchworth Village are partially demolished. Letchworth Village/Wikipedia
Once a sprawling campus with stately buildings, Letchworth Village is a now-defunct mental institution that has fallen into deep decay. Despite being ahead of its time (it tested the first polio vaccines in the 1950s) it closed in 1996, after years of reports of abuse and horrible conditions.

While most of the buildings are covered in graffiti both inside and out, it is still possible to view some aspects of the original architecture and uses for specific hospital buildings.
