GHOST TOWNS : VISIT DANGEROUS GHOST TOWNS AROUND THE WORLD

7 Creepy Ghost Towns Around the World

What happened?

People love abandoned cities. There is something wonderfully creepy about an abandoned area. Mist gathers in old doors, vines cover old houses, sunbeams illuminate rusting playgrounds and abandoned castles are slowly falling on distant hillsides. These abandoned spots, particularly abandoned churches, hospitals and mansions are the stars of some of our favourite scary movies and most cool photo shoots. They’re the perfect places to go for Halloween-lovers who are looking for spooky fun in the off season.

GHOST TOWNS

The question is, what happened? You can find a variety of reasons that places are abandoned: economic collapse, regime changes, sickness, war, and natural disasters. Every set of ruin tells its own interesting story. We collected the most fascinating and bizarre abandoned settlements in the world, which you won’t want to forget.

Pripyat Ukraine, GHOST TOWNS

This Ukrainian village is located close to the 1986 Chernobyl catastrophe site. This area has also been a hotspot during the current Ukraine–Russia war. Chernobyl was left to rot for years after it was infected with radioactive nuclear radiation. Pripyat, nearby, was also affected.

All residents were forced to evacuate. Although radiation levels have decreased, some street artists are now exploring the area with their adventures. But prolonged stays can still cause serious health problems for people.

Okpo Land, South Korea, GHOST TOWNS

Okpo Land was once a famous amusement park on the continent. But in 1999, a cart traveling on a duck-themed attraction got stuck and struck a girl. Okpo Land didn’t lose another person to the same ride in 1999. The second death resulted in the owner disappearing and the park falling into disrepair.

 The park was to be demolished in 2011, but the land was already earmarked as a site for development. But, this is probably the best thing that could happen. Here are some more hauntingly abandoned amusement park locations around the globe.

Bodie, California , GHOST TOWNS

Bodie is the perfect example of an Old West town. It is also one of America’s oldest ghost towns. It housed many saloons as well as a rough crowd, which is an accurate description.

 It was a flourishing place, even though it was unruly until two fires tore down the mills. Bodie was abandoned and business was halted. It was designated a historic state park in 1962. The area still retains some 19th-century American history. These tiny towns appear to be frozen in the past, but people still live here.

Pyramiden, Norway , GHOST TOWNS

Pyramiden, an abandoned Soviet settlement is located all the way in the Arctic Circle. It was once a prosperous mining town. However, in the 1990s, it was demolished along with the rest Soviet Union. 

The town was hit with more bad luck when a tragic plane crash killed several residents. Due to the region’s inefficient and failing coal mines, the city was shut down. Residents fled the area in 1998. It is still occupied by a statue honoring Lenin. This makes for creepy photos.

Oradour-sur-Glane, France , GHOST TOWNS

Today, the ruins of this French village are a reminder to the horrors perpetrated during World War II by the Nazis. On June 10, 1944, almost all of the inhabitants were killed by the Germans. As a memorial for the crimes committed against civilians, only ashy rubble remains and pieces of buildings are left.

Salisbury Plain in the United Kingdom , GHOST TOWNS

Salisbury Plain is a small area in Southwest England that includes a couple towns that were used as military defence training zones during World War II. The area was given to the military as a training zone for soldiers, and the villager who lived there were ordered to move on. As a tourist, however, Imber and Copehill Down can be visited in Salisbury Plain. Check out Stonehenge near you, one of many ancient mysteries that researchers have yet to solve.

Six Flags New Orleans Louisiana

Because of the massive destruction and flooding, hundreds of thousands were forced to flee their homes in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina devastated it in 2005. 

Six Flags New Orleans, which was located at the lowest elevation of New Orleans, had lost all its protective measures. It’s now a abandoned, creepy amusement-park that is only being touched by decay (and alligators). Strangely, the sign near the entrance still states “Closed to Storm.”
