Cute and Spooky. Creepy Dolls in the Forest [Germany]

Once cute dolls left for years in the forest which due to constantly changing weather conditions has turned into something creepy. This spooky site was supposed to be the least demanding location on that trip to Germany. No climbing over the walls or entering the buildings through the windows, just finding the spooky spot in the forest. However the closer I was the more unsure it felt. When I was planning this trip I had to blow away a thick layer of dust from the coordinates of this place. What if the location already doesn’t exist? What if having just approximate coordinates I won’t find the site and will spend the whole evening searching for it?

The Darkest Nightmare. Exploring the Creepy Abandoned Holiday Home [Germany]

What can be creepier than old decaying dolls? Most likely only old decaying dolls in the abandoned building taken over by nature and decay.

It had been a while since I got to know about this place. Just a random photo of a weird gate decorated with toys seen on the Internet and no information or exact details apart from a very approximate location. It seemed to be impossible to find it, however, this place stuck in my mind and one day while planning a trip to one undiscovered part of Prague (Czech Republic) I recalled that the approximate location of the strange gate should be somewhere nearby. I still didn’t have any hope to find it and continued preparations for the trip making a virtual walk on Google Street View in order to see what’s worth visiting there. To my big surprise, one of the first things that I saw was the weird gate and this is how I ended up making quite a long stop while exploring this area.

A Village in the Mountains. A Quick Visit of Pakleštica [Serbia]

Pakleštica, a small village in the mountains in Serbia, was in my itineary as one of the places to see while exploring the area around Zavojsko Lake. Some photos seen while planning the trip let me assume that I can find there something that is quite rare to see nowadays—old cabins which looked as if they were from a different century. So, despite the fact that visiting this place meant for me going a few kilometres out of the way I decided to go for it and extend my hike a bit.

In the Middle of Nowhere. A Ruin of the Church in the Meadow [Serbia]

I’ll be honest—this place wasn’t a priority for me, but having a chance to see a ruin of the church painted with the colours of sunrise on the way from another more famous location I couldn’t not include it to my itineary as well. So, after sacrificing a few hours of sleep I was finally in a small Serbian village and the only thing left was a quick walk through the narrow streets in order to reach the site faster than the sun.
