The explorer, who goes by the online name of Olav, has been publishing videos on YouTube since 2012. His past exploits have taken him to a number of creepy locations: a crematorium, a military complex, a sanatorium, a prison and a research center. All were abandoned and decayed.
“Urban Exploring is a practice that comes with certain risks,” he wrote on his YouTube channel. “Serious injuries or even death is a risk as many of these locations are closed down.” Indeed, his encounter with a killer in the tunnels of a Cold War bunker demonstrated just how dangerous urban exploration can be.
Like some hellish labyrinth, the tunnels appeared to extend for some distance into the mountain. Rickety pipes, overhead ducts and electrical wires punctuated Olav’s gloomy journey. He arrived at an old diesel generator and flipped the switch. Nothing happened. There was only darkness and silence.
