Haunted abandoned places across my roadtrip.

Recommended Posts

Hello urban explorers. 

 

I have lately been discovering the world of urban exploring, and have some great experiences solo exploring  'haunted' areas at night. The kind of adrenaline coming from visiting such place alone at night is terrifying yet very satisfying. I wish to keep up with my new hobby, but I have trouble finding places with a horror story which are not abaondoned. Perhaps it may seem lazy to 'just ask' it this way, but I can asure that I have been spending quite some days to pinpoint the right locations (it's always a far drive coming from the Netherlands).

 

For the next week I will make a roadtrip from my home town Coevorden in the Netherlands to Belgrado in Serbia. I am hoping somebody may have experience or a story about a 'haunted' place across my route.

I don't know any places in Serbia and so couldn't help you, anyway. 

 

No offense and it's not meant to be bad, on the contrary. But I think the first way should be to get involved in the forum, instead of asking for locations right away.

Show photos of abandoned places that you took during your explorations and comment on reports of others. This way you will build trust and make contacts. And so, over time, some people would surely help you, if they can.

It's simply quite unusual to name abandoned places right at the beginning, to someone you don't know. 

 

By the way: I often search in the text and image search on Google with keywords in the national language. For example, "abandoned house", "haunted villa", "disused hotel", "unused hospital", "decayed church", "closed factory", "uninhabited mansion" ... (in Serbia / Belgrade) ... and so on.

Just translate such and similar keywords with an online translator in Serbian language and use it for your search at Google. 
In this way (partly with further searches via Google Earth and Google Streetview) I've already found a lot of nice and interesting places in other countries, in recent years. 

Of course, that takes time. But this research is part of the hobby!

 

For the beginning, you maybe could also visit castles, castle ruins and church ruins. a lot of these walls and historical buildings are telling hauntings and ghost stories.

There are many traditional myths and legends. And many of them can be found in books and on the Internet.

      This is my first post on here, and these were taken with a cell camera, but I found this site interesting. This is a former control site for a Nike Missile Base that was part of a defense ring around a major city during the Cold War. The location where the missiles were stored/lauched in a few miles away and in use.  Eventually this was used as a State National Guard Unit until abandoned around 1996. The night photos are of 2nd base in this region which is partially used

      Actually these are not abandoned wrecks but pieces from the MALEV (Hungarian Airlines - not existing anymore) @ the Budapest Airplane Museum.
      Interesting fact - a pity - that Hungary haven't got national airline services these days...

      This hospital once was the biggest in the region, but since decades its empty, getting near to collapse. Location: Tatabánya, Hungary

      This place once was a coal mine transportline for train delivery, but since the mine exhausted its left behind to rust away. 
      Just a simple line forgotten. But I liked its mood.  
      Destination: Hungary, Bánk
      Captures made at 2011.08.28.

      The train in question is the Eurostar 373018, one of many Eurostar Class 373 trains that started operating in 1994. Capable of speeds up to 186 mph, the Class 373s were specifically designed to transport passengers between London, Paris, and Brussels via the Channel Tunnel.
       
      Since 2016, however, many 373s have been withdrawn or scrapped, despite just 22 or 23 years in service. Eurostar 373018 is officially in storage, but the word “abandoned” seems more appropriate.
      Branches from nearby trees now reach out and touch its windows. Weeds rise up from the rusting tracks on which it sits. Graffiti covers what were once the clean lines of the train’s streamlined form. It looks like the kind of place where Rick Grimes would butcher a bunch of zombies, or where Mad Max would go shopping if he wanted to buy a train.
       
      What the future holds for this high-speed train is anyone’s guess. So far, 18 of the 373 Class trains have been sent to be scrapped by European Metal Recycling (EMR) at Kingsbury in the West Midlands region of England. Others have been scrapped in France, three have ended up in museums or colleges, and some lucky 373s have been refurbished and remain in service.
       
      Eurostar 373018, however, remains in “storage” in the north of France, a fine nesting place for birds, an interesting canvas for graffiti artists, and an intriguing landmark for train enthusiasts, eagle-eyed users of Google Earth, and urban explorers like AdcaZz whose video exploration of the train you can check out on YouTube.
       
      And if you’re wondering why these 373s were abandoned and not reused elsewhere, well, it seems like a few factors were in play. Technology had simply moved on, leaving these 22-year-old trains out of date. It was also more cost efficient to bring in a modern fleet rather than overhaul these existing trains, especially as the replacements had a greater seating capacity, meaning more money over less time. In the end, therefore, many of the 373s were deemed “life-expired.”
