15 Creepy and Mysterious Abandoned Places in the World

Are you brave enough to explore these places?

11. Varosha, Cyprus

Varosha used to be a tourist destination in the 1970s and was famous for its beaches. Billionaires and well-known celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor and Brigitte Bardot frequented the place. However, in 1974, Turkey invaded Cyprus and Varosha’s glorious brightness dimmed. Approximately 15,000 residents fled and left their houses and possessions behind. Many of these residents initially planned to come back later on but the chaotic political situation prevented them from doing so.

Otherwise known as the Tequendama Falls Hotel, the then luxurious structure was built in 1924 in San Antonio del Tequendama. Unfortunately, the Bogota River eventually became polluted and tourists stopped coming. The place then became the first choice for people committing suicide, thus rendering the place haunted.

13. Discovery Island (Florida, USA)

Discovery Island used to be a Disney theme park. However, a dangerous bacteria was found to inhabit the waters of Bay Lake, prompting the closure of the amusement park. The place had been abandoned since.

14. Holy Land Theme Park (Connecticut, USA)

This religious-themed amusement park, which was built by John Greco in 1958, was popular in the 1960s and 1970s. Back then, more than 40,000 people flocked to the park every year. In 1982, plans for reconstruction and renovation caused the park to temporarily close. However, Greco died after two years and the park never reopened.

The Orpheum Theater, which could seat a maximum of 1,500 people, opened to the public in 1912 and was closed in 1959. It was sold in 1962 and was later used as a storage warehouse by a tobacco company. Currently, the building is privately owned and houses a supermarket at the back. However, the rest of the building remains empty.
