Abandoned Europe

Europe has a jump on American for ancient towns that were left to rot as citizens moved on from mining area to mining area or disasters befell them and created a mass exodus. Sometimes war causes blight, other times economics. It's the crumbling stone remains of many of these locations that make them seem positively ancient.

  2. Unfortunately the abandoned castle in Belgium doens't exist anymore. I wanted to visit a few months ago, but it turned out it had been destroyed as it was considered dangerous.
