    What strikes me about these haunted places is how beautiful they are. Seddlec Ossuary is a bit macabre! I usually think of haunted places as old but I can see how tragic events like Chernobyl create mysterious sites that lead to rumored hauntings. I bet the tours of these places are fun (if allowed).

      Yes, Annick most of them are pretty old but there are some newer ones too! As for the tours, I think it’s even more fun if one visits alone 😀

    What a fun collection of places to visit for their haunted reputation. Love the look of the Ram Inn, all ramshackle as it is. And would love to visit Beau-Sejour Palace, love the look of the blue and yellow tiles. But the most appealing is Chateau Miranda, the classic look of a haunted castle in my mind! Hoia Baciu Forest looks pretty cool too, especially if foggy!

    This is a wonderful list of haunted places of Europe. The castles and old buildings of Europe seem to lend themselves naturally to being haunted. Would love to visit a few of them. Reminded me of a haunted hospital that I had recently visited. These places hold a morbid fascination and also have a strange beauty to them.

      Thanks, guys, I really appreciate it. And yes, hospitals and asylums always have the potential of becoming a haunted place 😀

    Oh reading your gave me some spooky feeling and it looked like watch some horror ghost movie. All these spooky places are surrounded by beautiful natural surroundings and even the construction is magnificient, but it takes lot of daring to visit any of them. Though, I went to Ukraine last month but I could not dared to go for Pripyat. The story of Ram Inn with 20 spirits is really terrifying.

      Thanks, Yukti! Visiting Pripyat really was an amazing experience and there are even guided tours every day. The abandoned town left me speechless.

    Ooooh what fun! I love a good spook (when I know there’s actually no danger involved). This was such a fun post to read (love the pics as well), I hope the day will come when I can check all of these off my list, starting with the Haunted Vicarage of Borgvattnet in Sweden and the Moosham Castle in Austria!

    Am fascinated by anythings that gets attached with the word haunted 😉 .. places, tele series .. movies! And seeing a list of 23 haunted places in Europe makes me want to plan a trip now! There is an eeriness and thrill at the same time when visiting places like these! The Haunted Vicarage of Borgvattnet in Sweden seriously looks spooky and the experiences in Hoia Baciu Forest, Cluj-Napoca in Romania are scary! Dargavs does look like a charming village! What an experience it would be to see all these 23 places!

    I’m pretty terrified to visit haunted sites, but I did inadvertently end up at a hotel in Liberty, Missouri that had had lots of paranormal activity. I didn’t know about that when I booked our room, but when I arrived and began reading comments left in the room’s guestbook, I was pretty freaked out! Luckily, I never saw or heard anything!

      It’s very interesting to hear about your experience with this hotel in Missouri. I think I know which one you’re talking about. Perhaps I’ll include it when I write North America edition of this article 🙂 Thank you for your comment!

    The castles made the biggest impression on me, they look like out of a horror movie. We have one place like that in POland I was recently visiting, its so beautiful. And what I love about these kind of spots are the legends!

    Whoa! This is quite some list you have up here. I am really scared of ghosts. Would not dare to visit most of them. But Dargavs in Russia really entices me. That looks quite interesting with those small houses scattered around. So maybe Dargavs sometime! 🙂

      I understand, Soumya. Dargavs sure is a very interesting place to visit and a bit different than the other places on the list

    That Czech monastery with the skeleton bones gave me serious chills! Seriously, how did you find the scariest looking photos of all of these places! I can’t say I’ll be visiting any of them anytime soon, but appreciate the information!

    Wow what a cool post, you captured me! I can’t lie though I definitely feel a little spooky now. I don’t know if I could bring myself to actually visit spooky places, but I enjoy to read about them.

    Eek! I got chills down my spine just reading through your list. I gotta say though Beau-Séjour Paalace looks beautiful and I never would’ve guessed it was haunted. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but these are some interesting (and very different) itinerary suggestions!

    I am not a big fan of spooky places but architectural splendours they are some of them. I didn’t know Raynham House was one of the spookiest places in England. I would love to visit Edinburgh Castle some day and not for the haunted aspect but it’s historical importance and architecture. Thanks for sharing some great spooky places.

    This was a really interesting blog and one of the few that I read in detail. I am sure that Romania will have more haunted places though.

      Thank you, Anshul. I’m really glad to hear that! Indeed it has, Romania is the birthplace of the Vampire stories after all. I just didn’t want to make this list too long!

    The only place on this list I’ve been to is the Edinburgh Castle, and I actually didn’t even know it was haunted! We did go on a ghost tour in Edinburgh though, so I can see how the castle would have spirits as well. Quite a few of the castles I went to in Romania seemed haunted to me, so I was not surprised to see a Romania castle on your list. I’ve got to check out more of these!

      That’s really interesting Diana- I’ve met a lot of people that visited the castle without knowing about its haunted history. As for the castles in Romania, of course this list wouldn’t be complete without at least mentioning one of them 🙂

    Waaaaw! Those are cool. I have a weird attraction to such haunted places. I wanna go there with my camera. I have some expired black and white film, saved for such kind of cases. I think it would make the places look more creepy.

    Maybe I shouldn’t have read this post on my own in the house (I’m a wimp at the minute) but seriously a really great post and I like that you went into details on each. I was shocked about Dargavs Russia because it does genuinely look like a livable town.
