Throughout the history of the mankind, the human beings have always populated many new cities and places. Some cities grew more populated than the others because of their political importance or proximity to river and other resources. However, there were quite a few cities also, that were depopulated and eventually abandoned with the passage of time. People moved to other places in search of better lives. The photos below show few places of such kind. The eye is forced to appreciate the beautiful blend of the nature and the man made things.
