Abandoned Places

Ventures into abandoned places are perhaps the most common example of urban exploration. Many sites are entered first by locals and may have graffiti or other kinds of vandalism. There are other ones which are better preserved. Although targets of exploration vary from one country to another, high-profile abandonments include amusement parks, grain elevators, factories, power plants, missile silos, fallout shelters, hospitals, asylums, schools, poor houses, and sanatoriums.

Many explorers find decay of uninhabited space profoundly beautiful. Some of them are also proficient freelance photographers and content creators who document what they see.
Abandoned places are also popular among historians, preservationists, architects, archaeologists, industrial archaeologists, and ghost hunters.
