3 Abandoned Wonders of the European Union


Paris,France is notorious of late running metro trains due to frequent worker strikes - but perhaps less well known for its numerous abondoned Metro Stations.urban explorers manage to find their ways into some of these abondoned subway tunnels while others have been converted to new uses including (appropriately enough) official homeless shelters,Some of the tunnels can even be visited privetly late at night in groups led by sanctioned rail-expert tour guides.

German Military and Hospital Complex:

BERLIN Germany has been at the centre of European history in many regards,most recently as the divied core of Germany before East and West reunification.This abandoned complex located in Beelitz (just outside of Berlin) dates back back to the 19th century and was used by the Germans as a military hospital through the second World War.From the 1940s on it was continuously occupied and used as a military hospital by the russians complete with a surgery,psychiatric ward and rifle range before being abandoned in the 1990s.During its years of operation,fam0us(or infamous)patients included adolf hitler and former East zGerman leader Erich Honecker.


Mesen,Belgium is the smallest town with fewer than 1,000 residents.however it is the home of one of the most beautifull abandoned castles one could imagine,built,rebuilt,modified and expanded from the 1500s onward.this gorgeous structure evolved from a defensive firtress to a boarding school over time before being abandoned in the middle of the 20th has decayed by natural means with very little outside interference or vandalism and conjures pictures que images of beautifull deserted buildings.nonetheless,it s under threat of seems that only in europe,where such buildings are more abundant,could such a lovely structure be considered common enough to not necessarily warrant rehabilitation.
