Halloween: Eerie abandoned places
Eerie abandoned places
With Halloween being celebrated, everyone is getting into the spirit of the mysterious, the unexplained and the ever so slight creepy. You may be looking for somewhere to host the ultimate haunted Halloween party of perhaps you are just looking to explore some forgotten history. Either way, here is my list of some eerie abandoned places that can be found from Russia, to the USA, to South Africa:
Abandoned Water Park, Russia
This multi-story water park in Russia was due to feature a variety of rides for children and adults to enjoy. Unfortunately funding dried up, the developer was liquidated and this interesting structure is now abandoned.
Subway station, United States of America
Underground New York City the old subway station can still be found. Ultimately pristine, this extraordinary place is best visited on rare public exhibition days.
Groote Schuur Zoo, South Africa
This old zoo can be found adjacent to the University of Cape Town in the Western Cape of South Africa. Here, the old lion’s cages can be explored and this Cape Town zoo has been the home of student concerts and art exhibitions.
An entire abandoned town, Balestrino features an old-world castle, a parish church and numerous houses. The town was abandoned due to a number of earthquakes in the area and although some inhabitants have returned to the new town area, a large portion of the old town remains derelict and deserted.
Submarine Base, Ukraine
A remnant from the cold war, this vacant Submarine Base is now a museum. The base is located on the Black Sea in the town of Balaklava.
British Sea Forts, North Sea
These now defunct Second World War sea forts stand in the North Sea. These unusual “sea monsters” are popular with maritime explorers, divers and war enthusiasts.
