For millennials, the goals are pretty defined – learn a skill, earn good, travel the world. That’s it! Exploring new places is something that most of us desire of and, for many, it’s the constant source of motivation.
However, even for people with strong and defined travel goals, there are places where they can’t go. Not even with their Masters Card.
While many of these places are top secret HQs, there is a secretive underground train network too. And not to forget the haunted ones! Take a look.
Area 51 (USA)
Acquired by the United States Air Force in 1955, Area 51 has been a frequent subject of conspiracy theories and a central component to unidentified flying objects as the area has been declared as a restricted one by the US government. The base most likely supports the development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems but various claims of UFOs sightings have often made it a subject of curiosity, leading to many people believe that Area 51 is also a research center for the aliens.
A secret underground railway system that runs parallel to the Moscow Metro is said to connect major cities of Russia with the Federal Security Service (FSB) headquarters, the government airports and an underground town at Ramenki, in addition to other locations of national importance. Its presence is neither confirmed nor denied by the Federal Security Service of Russia and the access to the general public is not available.
Mt. Weather Emergency Operations Center (USA)
The Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center is a major relocation site for the highest level of civilian and military officials in case of national disaster, playing a major role in the continuity of the US government. It is the place where the most influential people will be flown to in case of an apocalypse and is, obviously, not open to civilians like us.
Room 39 (North Korea)
Based in North Korea and also known as Bureau 39, Room 39 is a secretive organisation that’s sole purpose is to find ways to obtain foreign currency for Kim Jong-un. It is often described as the kingpin of North Korea’s so-called, ‘court economy’ and is believed to be involved in illegal activities, such as counterfeiting $100 bills, producing controlled substances (involving the synthesis of methamphetamine, morphine-containing opium and pure opiates like heroin), and international insurance fraud.
And given North Korea’s reputation around the globe, everyone knows that the place is not a welcoming one.
Club 33 (Disneyland)
Club 33 is a private club located in the heart of the New Orleans Square section of Disneyland. People with exclusive access can only enter the club and can have resort experiences including lounges, early park admissions, and valet parking among others. It is the only place in the Disneyland to offer alcoholic beverages and the club costs $10,000 a year and has a $25,000 initiation fee per person.
North Sentinel Island (Bay Of Bengal)
Located far into the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean, the North Sentinel Island is known to be one of most isolated place on the planet. It is the home to a tribe that has been untouched by the modern world and is prone to all the disease it gets exposed to, including common cold. The tribe is also known to be a wild one and the place, hence, is somewhere you are not allowed to go by the government.
Lascaux Caves (France)
The Lascaux Caves is the setting of a complex of caves in southwestern France famous for its Paleolithic cave paintings. They contain some of the best-known Upper Paleolithic art and these paintings are estimated to be circa 17,300 years old. Art historians believe that the paintings represent a mystical ritual and can also improve future hunting endeavors. While it was open after the World War II for public visits, the government decided to close the caves in 1963.
Jiangsu National Security Education Museum (China)
For the Chinese, the museum is such sensitive one that foreigners have been restricted off it. The museum apparently has a range of spy documents and gadgets dating from 1927 and finds it too sensitive for foreign eyes.
Google Data Centers
While all the places listed above some information about the human existence or things that make us curious, the Google Data Center is a place that holds all the information about YOU. These centers keep all of Google’s products and services up and running around the clock and around the world and do not offer public tours for safety purposes.
