Hashima Island was once known for its undersea coal mines, which began operations in 1881. The island hit peak population in 1959 with over 5,000 residents (mine workers and their families), but once the mines started to run dry in 1974 most people left.

The once-thriving island is now completely abandoned, with the exception of the sightseeing tours that drop off boatloads of tourists each day who come to see the abandoned homes, stores, and streets. The island was also featured as a villain's lair in the Bond movie, "Skyfall."

Chateau Miranda is an abandoned orphanage.

This abandoned building has served a lot of different purposes. It was originally built by French aristocrats who were fleeing the guillotine, later became an orphanage, and is now just a ruin.

Although its owners got several offers, they refuse to sell it, instead letting it fade into its surroundings.

Built in the early 1800s, Gwrych Castle once had a total of 128 rooms, including 28 bedrooms, an outer hall, an inner hall, two smoke rooms, a dining room, a drawing room, a billiards room, an oak study, and a range of accommodations for servants. During World War II, it housed 200 Jewish refugees, and was later open to the public.

Although the castle has long been vacant, it was bought several years ago with the intention of being converted into an opera house and luxury hotel, but those plans never came through.

Once home to 200 children, classrooms, dormitories, playrooms, a dining hall, and other facilities, Holy Family Orphanage closed its doors in 1965.

A plethora of urban legends and stories surround the orphanage, including the mistreatment and death of some of the children housed there over the years. Some say you can still hear the children playing.

The spooky building is now in the process of being renovated and turned into apartment buildings for residents who are brave enough to move in.

The Moynaq Ship Graveyard is a ghost town in the middle of the Uzbekistani desert, almost 100 miles away from the nearest shore.

Once one of the four largest lakes in the world (it was 26,300 square miles), the Aral Sea dried up when the rivers feeding it were diverted for irrigation purposes in the 1960s.

Today, dozens of abandoned ships are disintegrating in the scorching desert heat.
