These Guys Slept In An Abandoned Cathedral And It’s Just As Creepy As You’d Expect

My idea of a good Halloween celebration is dressing up and going to parties or watching scary movies all night.

However, some people aren’t as easily satisfied when it comes to the spooky holiday, like the YouTubers Bros Of Decay. These guys love urban exploration and aren’t afraid to stay in seriously creepy buildings.

That said, it makes sense that they’d choose an abandoned cathedral to sleep in for All Hallows’ Eve. They definitely weren’t disappointed with their experience.

Of course, things got extra dark and creepy as soon as they stepped foot inside.

When they reached the cathedral room, they were greeted with this beautifully eerie sight.

The structures were stunning, if not a little unsettling in the lack of light.

The place would be the perfect setting for a haunting.

The cameraman wanted to check out the old organ, so he bravely broke away from the group and climbed these old stairs.

The view of the cathedral room was even more unnerving from upstairs.

The keyboard was dirty and likely out of commission.

But the organ pipes were pristine and looked like they were just waiting to be played.

After taking another set of stairs farther up, he finally reached the area that housed the church bells.

Besides resembling a scene from a horror movie, everything in the room was covered in bird poop.

He even found this creepy covered hole that opened to the ceiling of the cathedral room.

When it was time to pick where they should sleep, they walked down this dark hallway in the residential area of the building.

They quickly discovered that it was really dangerous when one of them almost stepped through the floor.

The group also found this door, which revealed another hidden door behind it through the hole. Who else is dying to know what’s in that room?

Surprisingly, they all got a good night’s sleep. But the next morning, they found more creepiness when they came across this well in the courtyard.

If you want to see their entire experience for yourself, check out the video below.

I have to admit that looks like it would be fun with a bunch of people, but could you imagine being there alone? Me neither.

You can find more of the group’s brave urban explorations on their YouTube channel. I know I’ll be watching them.

One Day, This Guy Decided To Climb To The Top Of The Great Pyramid Of Giza. Just Because.

Urban exploration can result in some amazing photos and experiences…although, strictly speaking, it’s not always legal.

That is what Andrej Ciesielski learned after he climbed to the top of one of the Pyramids of Giza.

Andrej the thrill-seeker made it all the way to the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza (the largest of the three there). It’s also known as the Pyramid of Cheops. That pyramid in particular is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (not only that, but it’s the only one to remain largely intact).

Shortly after arriving at the top, Andrej was arrested (of course).

But man…was it worth it.

He claimed the entire climb only took him 8 minutes (although, getting down was another story).

“Walking around in the complex I was waiting for the right moment to start climbing The Great Pyramid of Giza. When I started climbing a street seller was standing behind me but I didn’t care about him I turned around he laughed and I continued climbing.

At the half some people got attention on me and looked up to. That’s how the police spotted me. They shouted something in Arabic I think but I didn’t care and kept going while listening to music.”

His excursion was amazing, but it was a bit of a walk on the wild side most wouldn’t dare.

Top of the Cheops Pyramid!

Thankfully, after some quick questioning, the police released Andrej…who was most likely on his way to climb all over another wonder of the ancient world.
