I’m all for a good scare, but I tend to resort to watching a scary movie instead of heading to an actual place that is considered to be haunted. I’ve often thought about spending the night in one of those haunted castles advertised on televisions shows about scary places. I think I might actually chicken out if I was offered a free night at one of these castles, just because of the many horror movies I’ve seen in the past. Here are the 8 most haunted places from around the world.
8. The Sedlec Ossuary in Czechoslovakia

The bones of 40,000 to 70,000 people were used to make this ossuary, or ‘bonehouse’ in Czechoslovakia. As the story goes, an abbot sprinkled earth from Golgotha on the cemetery outside the abbey around 1278. This act created a holy place where everyone wished to be buried. The plague of Europe supplied the first quantity of individuals for the ossuary, but the artistic arrangement of the bones that is seen today wasn’t in place until about 300 years later. The chandeliers, wall decorations, and altars, and many other aspects of the church are all made of skulls and bones.
