Great Find, some of those were really cool. I'm sure there is a story behind them, but I can't believe some of hose places are abandoned.

That hotel in NK is neither abandoned or located where that photo has it. It's in the middle of the city and they finally finished it.

That North Korean hotel picture is shopped. It's in the middle of a city, although it was abandoned for something like 16 years before construction resumed within the last few years.

Construction began in 1987 but was halted in 1992 as North Korea entered a period of economic crisis after the fall of the Soviet Union.

After 1992 the building stood topped out, but without any windows or interior fittings. In 2008 construction resumed. In 2012, the exterior was reported to be complete. The opening of the hotel was scheduled several times but postponed.

I'm so obsessed with abandoned places. I would love to visit most of these, especially Pripyat.

The NK hotel is definitely shopped, but it pretty much is abandoned. It's complete, but it's still not used.

I like urban exploring but you do take the risk of being injured or arrested from time to time. This is an interesting video with subtitles of Hashima.
