Haven’t you ever wondered about some of the haunted locations in other parts of the world? How about in countries like Sweden and Norway , where the temperatures are a bit colder and attractions, such as old Viking stomping grounds can be found? In this article, you will learn about some of the interesting haunts located about these countries.
First, we will take a look at Sweden, where Borgvattnet may ring a bell with paranormal enthusiasts. This village is a small residential region situated in the northern part of the country. It is there that an old vicarage is found , dating back to 1876. Many in town believe that this is a haunted landmark. The first mentioning of ghosts regarding the vicarage came in the form of a letter written in 1927. Nil Hedlund, who was a chaplain at the time lived in the house and penned this correspondence.
Hedlund had a successor by the name of Rudolf Tangden, who came during the 1930s. He reportedly caught sight of a ghost in the house that he described as a woman. In the 1940, another chaplain (Otto Lindgren) experienced the same fate ,only this time his wife saw the same activity on top of odd sounds and objects that moved on their own accord.
A woman who paid a visit to the vicarage in 1941 claims that she awoke in the middle of the night to find that she was not the only one in her guestroom. Through the darkness of the room, she spied three old figures sitting on the sofa. They were staring at her and when she turned on the light to get a better look , the three ghost were still in view, but had blurred in her vision.
Four years later, chaplain Erik Lindgren moved into the vicarage and began a journal documenting all of the weird occurrences that took place on the premises. One of his most odd encounters while living at the vicarage took place when he could never get a chance to enjoy a rocking chair that he brought to his new home. He claimed that an invisible force would consistently toss him out of it.
Hospitals are pretty scary all on their own when you have to spend the night, but just imagine if you had to recuperate at an institution that is known for being haunted or serving as the stomping grounds of ghosts. This is the case with the reportedly haunted Porsgrunn Sykehjem, where staff in 2006 refused to accept their night shift until a priest blessed the premises because of the ghosts who were believed to haunt the grounds. Another notable location is called Lier Sykehus, which is a mental hospital that has already been shut down. It is considered one of the most haunted hot spots in the country.
