2. Kakola Prison
This is definitely one of the scariest places to visit in Finland! Kakola Prison is a terrifying location which is closed since 2007.

So, if you are brave enough you can spend a night there, and might here some of the ghosts.
3. Jussaro Ghost Town
Jussaro Ghost Town is Finland’s most known ghost town. It is named that way because the town was abandoned in 1960. This island is located in the Baltic Sea and it was known for its iron ore deposits, which in some cases have caused shipwrecks. After the iron ore was run-down, the island started to empty. Nowadays, many tourists visit the place to learn its history and look after some ghosts hunting the area.
4. Finnish National Theatre
This story is about one of the biggest theatres in Finland, and it is definitely a place to go. The building is the most haunted location in the area, and this is a good reason to go. It is said that there are three ghosts that haunt the place, the one is an actor who accidentally killed his wife, and the other is Grey Lady, who looks desperately for her lost script. If you are lucky enough you will be able to see one of those.
Last but not least, is Kruunuvuori, a former rich neighborhood which was full of wealthy houses and manors. After the end of World War II, Finland was turned into a poor country, so a large amount of these houses were abandoned. There are still left in that ugly condition and the houses are in ruins. Besides, there are plenty of stories related to that place where many ghosts have made their appearance.
