Varosha: The abandoned tourist resort »


I’m utterly fascinated by abandoned places, whether it’s a theme park, an apartment building, an overgrown golf course – but this is an entire beach-side resort city. The Turkish army came in, pushed everyone out in the middle of the day and fenced it off. This place wasn’t just closed and left to rot, it was left _as is_ in the middle of it’s heyday. People belongings are left exactly where they were dropped.
