Kolmanskop, Namibia from Top 10 Ghost Towns

Kolmanskop, Namibia 1 100x100

This town is placed among the sand dunes of Namib Desert. It was built to accommodate the miners who dug in the nearby diamond mine. The town has been empty since the mid fifties, and, since then, the desert has been swallowing it piece by piece by filling its, once noble, houses with sand. However the interiors of a couple of houses is very well preserved.
