Ghost towns, empty streets, crumbling ruins and lost empires: this book reveals stories, facts and photographs of 60 beautiful and eerie abandoned places across the world in which time has stopped and nature is taking up residence. Locations include Six Flags Jazzland in New Orleans, abandoned since Hurricane Katrina; the 1,300-year-old city of Sicheng in China, underwater since 1959; Poveglia, a Venetian island used for plague victims and as a mental asylum; Chernobyl; St Kilda; Plymouth, capital of Montserrat - and many more.
