Halloween is coming! On this day, both adults and children want to immerse themselves in the atmosphere as much as possible and therefore I read horror stories, watch horror films, and the bravest people go to creepy locations. On the eve of the most terrible day of the year, we have prepared for you a selection of the most terrible places on the planet:
- The Catacombs of Paris is a system of underground tunnels filled with 6 million skeletons. Who would have thought that under the cozy streets of the city, cafes and pastry shops are such labyrinths? The length of the tunnels is about 1.5 kilometers. The catacombs were built in the late 18th and early 19th century to solve the problem of overcrowded main cemeteries. Today it is the most creepy museum in the city.
- Mercado de Hechiceria is a small market in La Paz, Bolivia. However, this is not an ordinary bazaar where people sell fruits and vegetables. Here shop owners offer to buy occult items and goods for witches and wizards! For example, ingredients for potions (yes, dried frogs and crow's feet), costumes, amulets, totems, and much more.
- Pripyat is a city where the accident at the nuclear power plant occured in 1986. Since then, the city has been empty: abandoned houses, streets, shops, creepy carousels and deathly silence. If you have played S. T. A. L. K. E. R., you can roughly imagine what the local scenery looks like. However, without mutants. You can get here legally, as official excursions are allowed.
- The Bran Castle where according to legend Dracula lived! It is located on a steep cliff shrouded in fog in Transylvania. Just imagine how creepy it will be to walk through the medieval corridors and halls of this castle, especially if you remember the details of the bloody history of Vlad the Impaler. Wow, shivers.
- Island Poveglia in Italy has gained notoriety since ancient times. According to legend , even in the middle ages, plague patients were exiled here. At the end of the 18th century, sailors who arrived from long voyages were quarantined here, and in the middle of the 19th century, a hospital for the mentally ill was built here. By the way, the hospital building still exists, as well as the bell tower, from which, according to another legend, jumped the chief doctor of the hospital. There are no excursions here, but you can try to negotiate with local boatmen.
If you are going on a road trip to one of these places, then stock up on courage and sweets. It's definitely going to be creepy on Halloween night.
