Top 5 / Other

While the United States has some seriously haunted cities, it’s difficult to compare with the U.K.’s ancient history and Eastern Europe’s dark past. Check out this list of the most haunted cities abroad before planning your next international getaway.

 

Sighisoara, Romania

Basically the birthplace of vampire stories and creepy castles, Sighisoara, Romani,a is what Transylvanian nightmares are made of — in a good way. This architectural marvel of a city was home to Vlad the Impaler, once Prince of Wallachia and the literal inspiration of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Check out his legendary castle, Holy Trinity Church and his childhood home turned museum while in the area.

 

Prague, Czech Republic
With history and intrigue to boot, Prague is famously a ghostly city known for local legend and folklore, including the headless Templar Knight often spotted riding along the city’s cobblestone streets holding his own head. In another dark corner of the region, Houska Castle was once a Nazi headquarters for occult experiments in Blatce, Czechia. To say there’s something wicked in Prague is an understatement.

 

London, England

Over in foggy London town is a dark, haunted story — don’t let the modernity of the city fool you, London is rich with dark history. Top sites like the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey are known for ghost sightings and who could forget the terrifying stories of Jack the Ripper.

 

Poveglia Island, Venice, Italy
Affectionately called Plague Island, Venice’s city of Poveglia is one haunted locale. Once home to exiled Black Plague victims, Poveglia Island was something of a prison, easily giving way for the construction of a poorly maintained asylum with its own horrible history. The island saw only dark times and was quickly abandoned, making it one of the world’s most popular haunted destinations.

 

Edinburgh, Scotland
Home to some of the most horrific Witch Trials in history, Edinburgh has its own haunted problems. The Scottish capital is loaded with creepy stories accounting for its presently spooky city streets. Definitely worth a visit on your ghost hunters international trip!

Manayunk Brewing Company

Manayunk Brewing Company is situated along the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia’s Manayunk neighborhood. My husband and I spent the morning hiking at the nearby Wissahickon Valley Park, then made our way to the brewery and restaurant for lunch.
