Morna: The Greek village that has filled YouTube with scary stories


With Halloween approaching, considered the world's scariest holiday, more and more stories about haunted places are appearing, with one of those being the village of Morna in the Pierian Mountains in Macedonia.

This particular village, which no longer has any permanent inhabitants, is considered by many to be haunted, with many secrets and legends surrounding its name passing from mouth to mouth.

Morna once had life as the State Wood Processing Plant was located there. However, when the timber factory closed in 1967, desolation came.

Jobs dwindled and the young people of the village preferred to move a little further up, building another village, Fotina. The new village was much happier and sunnier there.
