Former German colony, this village located in the south of Namibia was founded in 1908. It was a mining town which knew a long period of prosperity thanks to the exploitation of the diamond. Due to the fall in the price of diamonds, Kolmanskop lost its attendance until it was completely abandoned in the late 1950s. The city is today a very popular tourist attraction and one of the most famous abandoned places in the world.
