Skopje, Macedonia. It's the building of the Jugobanka (Bank of Yugoslavia). The construction started in the late 1980's, but in 1991 socialist Yugoslavia collapsed and the building remained unfinished till present days. The current government of Macedonia has announced plans to finish it for Department of Treasury, but so far there is no visible progress.

Monte Palace Hotel - São Miguel Island - Azores Islands - Portugal

Built in the 80s, was the most luxurious hotel in the region. Located in west side of the island with a fantastic view to the Sete Cidades Lake. Was abandoned a few years after the completion.

In almost any other city in the western world those Detroit buildings would be high end addresses. If Detroit doesn't want them, how about shipping them piece by piece up here?

There's a lot of underutilized historic skyscrapers across the U. S. Still, it annoys me how Detroit has been demolishing so much of its heritage at taxpayer's expense with absolutely nothing in return.

The Venezuela one reminds me of what happened to Chavez's body after going on tour.

I see of the old solid Art Deco period in some US cities are worth keeping. Similar era buildings in my city, are listed by the National Trust and encouraged to be restored as boutique offices or converted into apartments...

Actually a cool looking building. Far better than the typical Soviet housing blocks. It's a nice example of the brutalist style and it should be restored without too much editing.

Wow some of these are fantastic. There's something about these eery abandoned buildings that just make you want to go there and explore them. I'm not the only one, right?

Menara Saidah, Jakarta, ID is one example of an abandoned highrise in Jakarta.

The building is said to be built on a burial ground (Jakarta has a lot of cemetaries ).

Irqah hospital Riyadh Saudi Arabia

An amazing abandoned hospital that was evacuated not long after it was completed. Even after 35 years the electricity still works.. what a waste. The reason it was abandoned is unknown, some say it was abandoned because it was build on haunted grounds. But I can't confirm that.. at all.

Look like a luxury hospital at that time



















Police in the front of the hospital last year
