Back in the day, buildings used to be a lot more creative and majestic than they are now. Sadly, not a lot of them have survived to this day, and even some of the ones that did aren’t always in the best of shapes. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t admire their unique beauty.

The members of the Abandoned Beauties Facebook group are sharing pictures of the most beautiful abandoned structures from around the world, and they still look impressive despite standing unused for hundreds of years.

Aušrys Uptas

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
