12 Beautiful Abandoned Churches of the World

There’s something eerily beautiful about the ruins of these old churches which were all abandoned and forgotten for various reasons. Some played important historical roles during times of war and civil unrest, while others depict the challenges and hardships faced by our modern world. Now, all that remains of these architectural wonders are parts of the physical structures which provide a strange and fascinating look into what once existed.
