Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. Sometimes beauty can be found in the most remote of places, hidden away like a treasure waiting to be discovered. Below are some photos of some amazingly beautiful abandoned places from around the world that look like they came straight from a movie scene. These hidden relics withstood the test of time and like a fine wine, aged over time and became something so much more interesting.

These 85 pictures of abandoned places are proof that a place doesn’t have to be full of bustling people to be the most stunning thing you’ve ever seen.
