The Eerie History Behind Ten Abandoned Churches From Around The World

The very thought of an abandoned church invokes mysterious and unexplainable feelings. Creepy abandoned churches inherently represent many of the unknown aspects of the afterlife, sometimes even giving off the sensation of being in a tomb or grave.

Abandoned churches around the world have been deserted for a wide variety of reasons: some were left to rot because of war, natural disasters, or economic motivations, and some were even left after a particularly disturbing event occurred. These scary abandoned churches are each creepy in their own way, and many stand as reminders of tragic events, left almost untouched for decades, or even centuries.
