7 most terrible places in Ukraine that not all tourists dare to visit

Ukraine is one of the largest countries in Europe, which holds many ncient secretsa and mysterious stories. Some locations from the Soviet era, as well as old castles, cause a sense of real fear, which attracts thrill-seekers. What places in Ukraine are avoided by local residents, but are welcomed by extreme  all over the world – further in the review.

The accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on April 26, 1986 dramatically changed the lives of millions of Soviet people, as well as the fate of surrounding villages.

Shortly before the disaster, the city of Pripyat was inhabited by 47 thousand people, but now no one lives here.After the accident, people were evacuated, and city blocks fell into disrepair, overgrown with trees and collapsing. Many people have seen photos from Pripyat, and this place is deservedly considered the most creepy in Ukraine. Fans of extreme sports independently enter the exclusion Zone to see the famous amusement Park with a Ferris wheel, DC “Energetik”, hotel ” Polesie»

In the vicinity of the village of Malaya Bugayka, Sumy region, there is an anomalous zone where unusual phenomena have been occurring for many years. Local residents, who know this desert area like the back of their hand, get lost moving between villages. The distance of a couple of kilometers can be covered for several hours. In the Bugay triangle, clocks often stop working and appliances stop working, and villagers hear moans and knocks at home.
About 400 years ago, a Ghost began to appear in the city hall of Lviv. It appeared at midnight and looked like a black coffin, with terrible screams flying through the corridors. Security guards and residents of nearby houses, hearing the terrible sounds, crossed themselves.
One of the lawyers (criminal judges) managed to solve the mystery of the phenomenon. It turns out that an innocent man was condemned to death by the lavnik College. Later, the real criminal was found, but too late: the unfortunate convict had already been executed.

In memory of the next generations on the cover of the judicial book was written in large letters “Pam’yatay Pro truna, scho gatherings and halls of the town Hall went” (“Remember the coffin that went up the stairs and halls of the town hall”). Since then, the judges of Lviv, when they took the book in their hands, thought well before sending someone to the death penalty.
Psychiatric hospitals have always been notorious. The image of “yellow houses” where people are kept and tortured has dedvelope in many cities. In Vinnytsia, there is one of these institutions where patients have long been treated with far from the most humane methods: they put leeches, made bloodletting, tied with belts and even dressed in shackles. In Soviet times, people who were objectionable to the regime were admitted to the hospital, where they often conducted experiments using psychotropic substances-the so-called punitive medicine.

In the private sector of the neighborhood “Druzhba” Ternopil there is a house that locals bypass the tenth road. The gloomy three-story red brick building, thickly covered with grapes, has long caused speculation and stories. People say that the house was built on the site of a cemetery, and during construction, evil spirits got into it. When there was no one there, there were howls and screams, and lights shone. The owners left their home, as furniture and objects literally flew around the house. Today, many years later, the building is inhabited again. The woman who has settled there, as they say, ” knows how to negotiate with the spirits.”
In Askold’s grave Park in Kiev, an abandoned Green theater has been standing for many years. This place resembles a military bunker with underground tunnels, since it was built on the site of the Kiev fortress of the times of Imperial Russia. The area is considered the center of communications of ancient Kiev since the XII century. Local diggers believe that tunnels and catacombs are located here on 9 levels deep underground.

Thanks to the capital’s press, the theater under the sky has become infamous. In Soviet times, there was a cemetery nearby for children who died early and suicides, and criminals left the corpses of their victims in the woods.

During the great Patriotic war on the territory of the Vinnytsia region for Adolf Hitler was built a fortified complex, which included 81 structures and several bunkers. They were built by 4,086 Soviet prisoners of war, who were then shot. German engineers in charge of construction were also killed when their plane exploded in mid-air.

The leader of Nazi Germany has been here three times to address issues of military strategy, and historians still puzzle over why Adolf Hitler chose this place. Magicians, psychics and astrologers claim that here, eight kilometers from Vinnytsia, is the energy center of Europe, where the Fuhrer intended to build the Third Reich. And geologists say that because of the terrain in the area of the Werewolf, the radiation level is sometimes exceeded by five hundred times.

With the approach of Soviet troops, the Germans blew up the complex, and now it is not possible to find out what was hidden in the lower levels of reinforced concrete bunkers. The research carried out in the USSR still lies in secret archives.
