Yep, sometimes the best travel stories are when you feel a speck of cold feet. Well, this is one of that kind. Cool, what makes Sedlec Ossuary special?
Tragically it is beautiful. It was already a popular burial destination due to a monk sprinkling the cemetery with dirt from Golgotha. Well, you might think it is an old medieval church from outside, but soon when you walk inside, you will get to know it is not an ordinary chapel.
Ossuary of Sedlec with a collection of skulls and bones. Who does this bone belong to? It contains skeletons of 40,000 people.

Mexico has become a favored tourist attraction for creepy dolls. Do you find it weird?
Well, there is a story. A floating garden lying off the canals of La Xochimilco is covered with hundreds of dolls. What do locals say about this?
Once, the island’s only occupant spotted a drowned girl in the canal and a doll nearby. He began hanging dolls around the island. Well, it is unclear whether he did it to keep away evil spirits or in honor. The island, which is attainable by boat, is still covered with dolls that date back to 1992.
Are you shell-shocked? Unless you are a daring soul who can take daredevil acts, can hire your own boat and literally try to convince the driver to pay it a visit. We warn you to view it safely from the water.
Okay, the next one on our scariest list is

4. Village of Nagoro
Yep, you said it right. We are talking about a village in japan. In nagaro town, if you happen to see, a figure may not actually be people. Wait! Then what could it be?
They’re actually life-size dolls. Surprisingly, they make up most of Nagoro’s population. If you take a ratio, you could find that the dolls outnumber humans. The ratio would probably be ten to one.
Actually, the story goes on like that of one woman’s struggle to fill the loneliness that exists in Nagoro due to the death of elders and low youth-retention rate. This small village becomes increasingly void of people as time goes on. In response, Ayano Tsukimi created life-size dolls around the town to give it a sense of life.
Atlas Obscura claims that 350 toy citizens are currently inhabiting the village. Isn’t that hectic for Japan? – 10 scariest places in the world
3. Hanging Coffins of Sagada
As the name says, coffins are hung at this place. Situated in Sagada, Philippines, a tribe called the Igorot traditionally buries their dead in so-called “hanging coffins. It might be strange for you, but the Bo people of southern China have also done the cliffside burials.
This is an ancient funeral custom followed by the Philippines that entombs the departed in coffins tied to rock faces or within caves in the face of cliffs. Well, if you have visited this place, you might have wondered about the chair.
The chair is called a sangadil or sometimes referred to as the death chair. It’s one of the steps in the traditional Igorot burial process. And you might have probably misunderstood that tin coffins are for babies.
NO, it is not. You’re buried in the fetal position. Traditionally they believe that you have to depart the same way you entered the world.

2. Beelitz-Heilstätten Hospital, Germany
You might think that most abandoned hospitals could look like a haunted place, but this one is different. The history of this hospital in Germany is as creepy as it seems.
It was used to treat Nazis during World War II and the Soviet Army. You might have got how far we have traveled back. You could probably say that this is the place where Hitler could have recovered from the wound. If you are easily spooked, we suggest you not take a visit.

A true wonder of the world and literally one of the most dangerous places in the world. What if I say burning methane almost the size of a football is what we call the gate to hell or door to hell?
From producing a lot of curiosity, The door to hell has a lot undiscovered. The crater has been burning since 1971, that means for the past 47 years.
Geologists claim it set it on fire to curb the spread of methane gas, but it continues to burn.
