Abandoned World Hotels
Abandoned hotels, once flourishing, luxurious and crowded, hosting guests from all over the world, now stand silently, quietly and desolate. Only the wind and rare adventurers break their silence. Abandoned due to various circumstances, they attract curious travelers with their mystery and unsolved mysteries.
Grossinger’s Catskill Resort Hotel is a ghost hotel located in New York State. Once it was a huge ski resort, where celebrities loved to come and train athletes. At its best, it occupied an area of 5 km2 with 35 buildings, had its own runway and post office. However, since the 1970s, the hotel has ceased to attract visitors and was closed in 1986.

Abandoned are not only hotels, but entire resort areas. The most famous ghost resort is Varosha, Cyprus. Previously, it was a fashionable resort where rich people and celebrities came to relax. However, in 1974, Turkish troops occupied the lands of Cyprus, including Varosha, and the Greek population left their homes. Now the resort is surrounded by a fence and is under the protection of Turkish soldiers and UN peacekeepers. Passage to the territory is strictly prohibited.
There are also mysterious abandoned hotels in Russia. One of the most famous is the five-star Severnaya Korona Hotel in St. Petersburg on the embankment of the Karpovka River. Its construction began in the late 80s by state order. After the collapse of the USSR, problems with financing began, and the hotel changed its owners several times. The construction was completed, but the hotel has never received guests in its luxurious rooms. If you decide to visit the Northern Crown, then you should hurry up, as the hotel is planned to be demolished in the near future.
The abandoned Holiday Area Eco Dream Club Sea Resort (Naturland) hotel in Turkey is also quite famous and popular among Russian tourists. The hotel occupies a vast territory and is divided into thematic zones: sea and forest. Until recently, he worked and received tourists, but now he is abandoned and empty.
