Everyone knows that beauty isn’t just skin deep and it’s very much the same with the natural world. Whilst we marvel at the diverse beauty of the planet, the underground world is usually confined to forgotten folk tales and myth and legend. It’s easy to forget that beneath our sidewalks and roads there really could be a mysterious and magical world waiting to be discovered and explored. Some of the marvels of the deep are created naturally over the millennium but perhaps the strangest subterranean realms are the man made ones long abandoned and left to decay From secret cities beneath Beijing, China to the vibrantly coloured world of the abandoned salt mines in Russia, this collection features some of the most awe-inspiring underground hidden wonders of the world.
