Spine Chilling Places in the World

What an amazing world we have, from its splendid landscapes, wonderful people to its creepy haunted places. There are spine chilling places you need to know, explore or visit. Here is a list of few creepy places you may not want to visit.
The Sedlec Ossuary -Sedlec, Czech Republic

Sedlec ossuary also known “Bone Church” is a small chapel located in Sedlec Czech Republic. Abbot Henry brought back a jar of soil from Grave of the Lord of Jerusalem, Golgotha and scattered the soil accross the Sedlec cemetery. Soon people from the place and the surrounding countries desired to be buried in Sedlec Cemetery that was now believed to be a holly land. The number of burials outgrew the space available thus exhuming old remains and stored them in the Chapel.

Hill of Crosses, Lithuania

Hill of Crosses is located about 12 kilometers from the city of Siauliai northern Lithuania People began leaving crosses on the side of an old fort in commemoration and remembrance of those killed fighting for the independence in Lithuania. Over 10,000 crosses are crowded together in huge piles across the entire hillside.

Aokigahara Forest, Japan

Aokigahara Forest also Known as “Suicide Forest” is located Northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan. It is believed over 100 people commit suicide in this forest every year. Government of Japan has been laying uplifting sign boards messages like ‘think of your family’ or ‘life is precious! please reconsider’ all over the forest. I believe here is scary especially the view of hanging bodies on trees across the forest.

Devil’s Kettle – Minnesota’s Judge Magney State Park, USA

Devils is located in Judge Magney State Park, Minnesota. Brule River splits twice down the fall with one section of the river down streaming normally while the other section vanished into a deep hole known as Devil’s Kettle. No one has ever discovered where the whole ends or water goes.

Island of Dolls, Mexico

The Island of Dolls is located in the Xochimilco Canal, near Mexico City. It has strange and terrifying dolls hanging on trees and also scattered along its floor. According to legend, a young girl drowned in canal and a man by name Julian Barrera found her doll floating in the nearby water. In memory of her, he tied the doll on a tree. He thereafter decorated the whole island with dolls which he collected from rubbish tips and around the canal as a memorial to the girl.

  1. Aokigahara Forest in Japan sounds and looks like a very laid back place.It reminds me of my latest trip to Zhangjiajie National Park :).

    • It seems laid back place but you can imagine how scary to find human bodies scattered or hanging all over the forest. It must be spine chilling.

  2. Thanks for sharing My Mother’s Story
