Best weekend ever: the world's truly eerie places
In honor of Halloween, here's our list of truly eerie places around the world.
MICRONESIA: During World War II, air strikes wiped out a Japanese naval base sinking dozens of aircraft carriers and ships. Today, divers can swim through the desolate shipwrecks and see the haunting remains left behind.
ROMANIA: Near the Carpathian mountains sits a majestic palace. Built in 1377, it became the so-called home of Count Dracula. Try not to think about the cold flash of his fangs as you tour the creepy hidden tunnels, including one covered by a fountain that goes 50 meters below ground.
KYUSHI: What happens to the world we leave behind? The Japanese island gives us a glimpse of what happens to a world that has been completely abandoned. For nearly 100 years, Kyushi had a thriving coal mine, but when it closed in 1974 the people emptied out and left behind an eerie ghost town.
