PLACES YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO VISIT
Added on: 17th May 2015
RAF MENWITH HILL, ENGLAND
Run by the Royal Air Force in conjunction with the NSA, this place
is said to be the most powerful and extensive monitoring station
in the world.
COCA COLA RECIPE VAULT, GEORGIA
There have always been rumours about Coca Cola’s secret recipe and
in 2011 it was supposedly retrieved from its vault at SunTrust Bank
and transferred a few minutes down the street to the new World of
Coca Cola exhibit. Visitors can now see the vault complete with all of
its security. Many people, however, believe that Coca Cola is
just monetizing the myth.
AREA 51, NEVADA
The United States Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51 is a remote
detachment of Edwards Air Force Base. The base's current primary
purpose is publicly unknown; however, based on historical evidence, it
most likely supports development and testing of experimental aircraft
and weapons systems.
This town in Russia is closed by the government and is believed to
house employees working on Mount Yamantaw, the location of what
NATO suspects to be a large nuclear facility.
SNAKE ISLAND, BRAZIL
Just off the coast of Brazil this snake infested island lives up to its name
and is off limits to visitors courtesy of the Brazilian Navy. Supposedly it is
home to over 5,000 highly venomous snakes.
Among the planet’s youngest places, this North Atlantic island
emerged from the waves following an extended volcanic eruption in
the 1960’s. It is arguably the world’s most pristine natural habitat
and only a few scientists have ever been allowed to venture there.
GOOGLE DATA CENTRE, OREGON
Probably as guarded as Area 51, Google’s first data centre is a
high security location.
TOMB OF QIN SHI HUANG, CHINA
Home to wonders like the famous Terracotta Army, the tomb of China’s
first emperor remains largely unexcavated thanks to a very
protective Chinese government.
