5 Places That Give People Goosebumps
#1 Hashima Island, Japan
Hashima Island is found 9 miles from Nagasaki, Japan. The island was used for coal mining until 1974. But then petroleum replaced coal throughout and Hashima was abandoned. It has been commonly referred to as “Ghost Island.” It is now partially reopened to tourists.
#2 Stull Cemetery, USA
In the early 20th century, two tragic accidents really rocked the settlement of Stull in Kansas. First, a father accidently burned his son while burning a farm field. The second incident occurred when a man who had gone missing was found hanged on a tree. As far as the local rumor has it, Stull Cemetery is one of the 7 gateways to Hell.
#3 The Hill of Crosses, Lithuania
The Hill of Crosses had been dubbed by Pope John Paul II as a place for hope and love. This site is a popular Catholic pilgrimage site established in the 1830s. It features at least 100,000 crosses and giant crucifixes.
#4 Biosafety Level 4 Hot Labs

#5 Paris Catacombs, France
