Our Post-Apocalyptic World

Books, movies, TV, and video games of late have depicted the end of the world in a wide variety of ways. Check out these 30 global landmarks and how they might look in a post-apocalyptic world.

What is it about the end of the world that excites and fascinates us? From The Walking Dead to The Hunger Games to The Last of Us, the apocalypse has been everywhere lately. Maybe it’s because very often in literature, the end of the world turns out to not be the end after all, but a new beginning. A post-apocalyptic world is like a slate that’s been wiped clean, waiting to be reborn.

Then again, maybe it’s just the cool visuals. If that’s the case, then have fun with these catastrophic depictions of real-world landmarks that are still standing after (or during) the end of the world.
