INCREDIBLE snaps reveal eerie abandoned Russian ghost towns frozen in time after residents fled hellish -50C temperatures. The eerie images were taken 11 miles from the coal-mining town of Vorkuta in the Sementnozavodsky region. Vorkuta is one of the coldest towns in Europe and was once home to a Stalin-established Gulag prison camp. But it has been a long time since these properties have seen the hustle and bustle of residents, with snow blasting its way into forgotten homes and icicles covering staircases and sticking out of window frames. Aerial shots also show abandoned vehicles blanketed with snow in a car park while apartment blocks appear painted white after being hit with by blizzards.
