OOOoooh, I didn’t know there is such a beautiful abandoned house in Singapore!
According to the author of these stunning photos, this house was first built in 1854, and was known as “Tyersall House”. In 1860, a Malay sultan took over the property and the house was demolished. The new house, Istana Woodneuk (“istana” means “palace” in Malay) was built in 1890 and completed 2 years later. In 1905, it was badly burnt because of faulty electrical wiring. This house has been abandoned since 1907.
Wow, truly old-skool. But I like!
The following pictures depict the present state of Prypiat, home to the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant workers, 23 years after the accident.
The ghost city which was abandoned after the catastrophe, has now grown to a forest. Nature takes over, invades and collapses human creations, reminding us of the destruction caused by humanity.
Sounds familiar? Perhaps many of these images gave the movie “I am Legend” their inspiration, since the similarities are quite uncanny.
Abandoned city. Forests have grown since the evacuation
Empty government building
Pripyat funfair was due to be opened on May 1st, 1986, five days after the accident. Til date, it remains one of the most irradiated parts of Pripyat since the disaster.

There’s something surreal and intriguing about abandoned spaces, especially theme parks.
It’s sad to see a place that used to give so much joy and laughter just wasting away, with all the rides still and quiet.
The past days of glory and joy now stands in stark contrast with the present dilapidated ruins.

It’s in Japanese but the pictures alone is enough to send chills down your spine…
