The worst cities in the world
On our planet there are cities which podimaet the skin cold. It’s dead cities, abandoned cities or just those in which people live, but they would be better not to do it. They meet in different countries and on different continents. Some of these elements destroyed, and some of the people themselves.
This city was founded in the XVIII century, and before the war, Nagorno-Karabakh has flourished and developed successfully. The last Soviet census conducted in 1989, considered it 28 thousand inhabitants. In Agdam worked in schools and colleges, was the drama; here, producing wine, dairy products, canned food; and here was a toolmaker. The city was connected with the rest of the territory of the Republic and of the USSR railway.
Then in 1991 began the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict. The Azerbaijani army in 1992-1993 used the city as a place of deployment of artillery. Hence shelled Stepanakert. Of course, the Armenians did not remain in debt, and in 1993 the Armenian army stormed the town of Aghdam to suppress enemy artillery.
As a result of several attempts to storm living in the city became impossible. He destroyed literally to the ground; only the whole building – a mosque (but to stand up for the residents of Allah, apparently, not wanted). Now in Agdam people there, the ruins of the city overgrown with wild pomegranate trees. Residents of nearby villages sometimes visit the dead city in search of materials suitable for home construction. This is now limited to the whole economy of Agdam.
Centralia (USA, Pennsylvania)
In 1841 he founded the tavern called the «Bull’s head». Shortly around her and formed a settlement, and in 1854 it was already considered a town. The city grew, there were schools, hospitals, post office, shops and even a theatre. The town originally bore the name Centerville, later was named Centralia.
The main occupation of the working population was mining of coal – Pennsylvania is famous for its mines. Coal and destroyed the city. In 1962, during a fire at the dump near the town, started a fire in the mine the anthracite. The fire slowly but surely spread through coal seams. The earth was cracked, the cracks were acrid smoke. The fire is still impossible to repay.
Soon people began to leave the city, fearing for their life and health. Centralia empty. In an abandoned prodymlennogo city live now, or a dozen people.
The Neftegorsk (Russia)
The town was built to house the workers who worked on oil fields. Gradually, except for oil-shift workers it settled a lot of people. The city developed rapidly, high salaries have attracted new residents. All was good work, and prospects of the Neftegorsk seemed shiny.
It all ended in 1955 when 25 may, the city got a 10-point quake. On behalf of the city only a few buildings, more than 2000 people died under the ruins.
The city never restored. In its place stands a huge obelisk in memory of the victims.
It is a city on the North Bank of Taiwan was built as an ultramodern resort. It differed most original architecture; the officers-the Americans were preparing to move into the house, like plates. But investors piling financial problems and the project in 1980 was frozen. A few years had attempted resuscitation. From Sanji began to build a luxury hotel and a Marina, but soon the works were finally abandoned.
During the entire time of construction, the company was pursued by a strange failure. Inexplicably died the staff. The few tourists in a hurry to go, stating that Sanji they are uncomfortable. In the end, the project was finally abandoned and empty city inhabited Taiwan homeless. But they do not grow here. Those who are just «changed residence», said that the city wandering dead and there are people disappear. Regularly publish information about the disappearance of interesting, I decided to look for adventure in the dead city.
The city has only existed for 16 years (1970-1986). The basis of its population were specialists who served the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Lived in Pripyat great, the city was modern with good infrastructure, people received high wages.
Then the accident happened at a nuclear plant. For several days the city is completely evacuated. People went into a terrible panic: the first looters broke into an abandoned town found in kindergartens scattered toys in the apartments on the tables and plates with remnants of food in schools on the boards – challenges.
Now from Pripyat these same looters removed everything: valve, valuable household items even doors and frames. Through the asphalt sprouted already a Mature birch. Funeral creak in the yards of the rusted swings.
In Pripyat now lead tours – there are people who think it’s funny to look at «Apocalypse now.»
In this town the worst thing is that people live in it. Dharavi is part of Mumbai, a huge city slums. Such areas exist in many cities of Asia and South America, but Dharavi is the largest. Here live the impoverished poor and just questionable items. Housing here are a tiny Lacoste, built from garbage, crates, boxes. Many do not have this and spend the night on the street. As a result, in the dark Dharavi looks like a battlefield, strewn with motionless bodies.
From these people there is no work, they get no support, eats anything. Water is also a huge problem. Toilet in the modern sense is almost impossible to find, the population uses this quality runs through the town river.
And even more frightening is that the nightmare children are born. Although the situation when three generations of the family live in the booth half the size of a modest garage is considered to be very successful, some children still manage to survive. In the future they will contribute to the further growth of the city, residential mailboxes from sparkling water.
