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.

      Hi all!
      Just a quick one this time, we decided to visit an old abandoned boatyard which also had an old car place inside as well. We couldn't find to much history on this one however it was nicely buried away in some trees/bushes along the side of the South Coast.
      Hope you enjoy the footage!

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.

      Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  
      It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.
      The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 
      There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 
      It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 
      So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,

      An abandoned beacon in the baltic sea. There are two of it. One 1000m and the other one in 4000m distance from the runway.
      Ther were used to enlarge the range of the runway ...so the pilots could navigate easier to the short runway.
      Build and used by the NVA. The army of the former GDR... (DDR).
