  1. Mezhgorye

Have you ever heard about this place before? Doesn’t this sound a little different? You would be surprised to know that the place is as different as the name of the place itself. Mezhgorye is one place that would make you believe that even if you have discovered enough of Russia - there’s more of it that you need to discover. Mezhgorye is located in the Republic of Bashkortostan, Russia. The place has imposed a ban on the visitors entering its borders. There is nothing to talk about traveling to this place, even the Russian citizens who belong to other different parts of the country are not allowed to enter these borders, in general. 

From sources, it has been heard that the work on a highly classified project around Mount Yamantau is in progress in the town - but there’s no clear idea on this. There are stories & anecdotes from the past that suggest that - the place encapsulates plenty of secrets from Russia including a nuclear program, a huge warehouse of coal, a bunker, and some kind of treasure. There is nothing bad in Russia keeping its secret - but it prohibits ardent travelers from seeing such a beautiful place - that’s the bad thing.

  1. Surtsey

Located beautifully in the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago off the southern coast of Iceland, Surtsey looks too beautiful in pictures and from a far off place. But, the bad news for the explorers is that we have no access to this beautiful chunk of paradise. The volcanic island was formed as a result of the volcanic eruption in 1963. To date, only a handful of scientists and professional explorers have got the opportunity to visit this place. Indeed, there are speculations about the place that - it is a place used as a living laboratory. A bunch of scientists studies, here, about the course of ecological succession. To put this in a layman language, we would say that it is the center for a scientific study of “how animals and plant interactions” take place without any intervention of humans. 

So, these are some of the most mysterious places around the world you must know about. While a few places allow travelers - some have been reserved for some specific purposes. Even if you cannot physically witness the beauty of those places - you always have the freedom to read, discover & know more about these mysterious nuggets of land.
