8. Kadykchan, Russia

One of the modern day ghost towns in the world is the city of Kadykchan. Kadykchan once had 12,000 residents. The people who lived there were mostly the workers of coal mines which were found scattered all over the area. When the Soviet Union collapsed, the town was greatly affected. With diminishing demand for coal, a lot of mining companies closed down. And finally, in 1996, an explosion in a coal mine which killed six people sealed the fate of the city. In the following months, the 12,000 inhabitants evacuated to nearby towns and the population dropped to less than a hundred.

9. Gilman, Colorado

The town of Gilman in Colorado was founded in 1886 during the Colorado Silver Boom. Due to the mining activity in Gilman, it later became the center of lead and zinc mining in the entire state. However, in 1986, the little town saw the beginning of its end. The mines became unprofitable and the presence of toxic pollutants was discovered. The contamination of the ground water also made the town uninhabitable. As a result, the Environmental Protection Agency immediately ordered the abandonment of the town and its closure to the public.

10. Oradour-Sur-Glane, France

The village of Oradour-sur-Glan in France is one of the few remaining monuments of the horrors of the Second World War In June 1944, the Germans decided to ‘punish’ the residents of Oradour-sur-Vayres for supporting the French Resistance. However, the German soldiers mistakenly attacked the nearby village of Oradour-Sur-Glan, instead. During the incident, the men were taken to various barns and shot one by one. The women and children were herded into a church and killed using a machine gun. 642 residents were killed during the massacre. Today, the village remains standing as a memorial to the massacre.
