When nature recovers its rights, the result is simply spectacular.

I have been traveling around Europe for almost 10 years in search of forgotten heritage places. Here you find a series of photographs where nature mixes with human's built environment.

I wonder why a place with such beauty and history is abandoned in the first place.

Upkeep... most people don’t want to spend the money to keep places like this up. $1000 per month to keep these places looking good.

It would have been a good idea to put the name and location of these places.

Yes the poster of this should’ve done his research and added the places name at least. Pretty sure they are copy/pasting most of these I’ve seen before on other websites.

These make my heart hurt. The craftsmanship ... what will the most of the crap built in the seventies or eighties look like in a one or two hundred years? Even in ruin they have so much to tell us, so many stories and history to be preserved.

It’s like the upper floor of Sainte-Chappelle except that the windows aren’t stained and the floor is.

Several of these are so beautiful and it is a shame that they have been left to rot away. It breaks my heart to see these magnificent places abandoned. Some of them, especially the first ones just seem like they should get a second chance. Of course that takes money, lots of money to do something to preserve or repair these beautiful places. Such a shame.

Since they’ve been abandoned for so long, it will take even more money to restore the rot that has happened to most of these places. 💰💰💰💰

For me, there’s something transfixing about trees growing in what was once indoors. When I was a child, my parents had friends who lived in the hills of California’s Gold Country and they had a house that had been build around a redwood tree, and the toilet paper hanger was affixed to the tree.

I saw this place the other day on Discovery Channels abandoned engineering program. This is an old coal power tower in Belgium, the name is Power Plant IM – Charleroi, Belgium if you'd like to read more on that.

I feel like I've seen this photo before--that is simply one of the most beautiful windows--art nouveau? Is there any chance it will be restored? or saved?

At first I thought that thing on the left was a coffin, but then I realized it was an old gymnasium and that it’s a horse (or at least that’s what it was called when I took gymnastics 50+ years ago).

If this was safe I would clean the walls, floor and ceiling, but keep the bracken. And live in it. Of course replace the chair and cupboard.
