Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Warmed by
the Gulf Stream, the island nation has a temperate climate and has been settled for more
than a thousand years.
Yet, despite a population of just over three hundred
thousand, the hauntingly majestic countryside of Iceland is dotted with the ruins of houses
and other abandoned buildings. Take a peek at some amazing photos of these lonely old buildings, and take in the vast, open emptiness of the landscape that makes them so very beautiful.
