Starting tomorrow on the blog - "Towns No One Wanted Week." Expect me to explore towns that were abandoned for a wide variety of reasons. You will get to hear about their history and see how they appear today.
Reasons for abandoned towns vary widely from natural disasters like earthquakes, floods and volcanoes to toxic issues in the ground water or nuclear. There are towns that had their heyday and then went bust, like mining and manufacturing towns. There are also towns that were built but no one came, like this town in China -
I hope you enjoy this coming week's exploration into the forgotten and abandoned towns around the world.
