PLACES YOU CAN'T VISIT
Added on: 26th Feb 2015
LASCAUX CAVES IN SOUTHWEST FRANCE
These 20,000 year old cave paintings were being damaged by
exhaled CO2 from tourists so the French Government shut them down.
NORTH SENTINEL ISLAND, ANDAMAN ISLANDS
Inhabited by between 50 and 400 Sentilese who tend to rain arrows
down on the heads of foreign ambassadors trying to make contact,
they have now been protected by the Indian Government.
ISE GRAND SHRINE, JAPAN
In existence since 4BC only priests and priestesses of the royal family
are allowed in. The shrine is demolished and rebuilt every 20 years in
keeping with the Shinto idea of death and rebirth.
CLUB 33, DISNEYLAND
If you can pay a $25,000 initiation fee and $10,000 annually for
membership fees, then you can join Club 33, one of the world’s most
exclusive and secretive dinner clubs found in the middle of the
happiest place on Earth.
METRO 2, UNDER MOSCOW
Supposedly built by Stalin for the Russian Secret Service and top
government officials, this rumoured secret subway has never been
proven to exist although people who worked on it have been interviewed.
MOUNT WEATHER, VIRGINIA
Basically the real version of the “doomsday” bunker where you always
see the President go in the movies, it is 48 miles outside of
Washington DC in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Not much has been said of
the place apart from a short TIME magazine interview of one of its
VATICAN SECRET ARCHIVES, ITALY
Although conspiracy theorists tell of advanced vaults this is far from the
truth. The archives rely on insanely old fashioned technology. And they’re
not even truly secret. Although you can’t enter you can view any
document that is older than 75 years. Today it is said that they have
more than 50 miles of shelving.
WHITE'S GENTLEMAN CLUB, ENGLAND
No, it’s not racist. At least not to our knowledge. It’s the most exclusive
club in England and it only caters to royalty and other men in
ROOM 39, NORTH KOREA
Found in the capital city of Pyongyang, this secretive government
facility is said to be the heart of numerous illegal operations including
counterfeiting and international insurance fraud.
