10 forbidden places on Earth
On our amazing planet there are some places that are just too dangerous, too protected, or maybe just very special to visit. This list of 10 forbidden places on Earth is probably the closest you’ll ever get to any of these places unless you are a Rothschild or the US President. So Enjoy and have a good look at the list below.
Area 51, USA
What better way to start this list, then with the most famous USA best kept secret: The Area 51.
The United States Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51 is a highly classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base, within the Nevada Test and Training Range. Possibly the most infamous place in Northern America, Area 51 has been the site of speculation for decades. For decades, a U.S. military installation located roughly 100 miles (161 kilometers) north of Las Vegas had been one of the worst-kept secrets on the planet.
Moscow Metro 2, Russia
Metro 2 is a suspected gigantic under-city of tunnels and bunkers which resides beneath the cobbles of Moscow.
Defectors, urban explorers and cryptic comments by high ranking Russians have all fueled stories of its existence. The Metro 2 in Moscow runs parallel to the public metro lines, and is not currently in use. Built during the rule of Stalin, the train system has never been officially acknowledged and even today, Russian officials neither deny nor confirm its existence.
North Sentinel Island, Andaman Islands
North Sentinel Island is one of the Andaman Islands, which includes South Sentinel Island, in the Bay of Bengal. An island that is unlike any other place on Earth: home to a primitive and enigmatic tribe, it is both ferociously dangerous and worryingly fragile.
Indigenous population has rejected contact with all other peoples and are among the world’s last communities to remain untouched by modern civilization. In 2008, two fisherman whose boat accidentally strayed too close were reportedly killed by the tribe. And in the wake of the massive 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and resulting tsunami, research helicopters assessing the damage in the area were attacked by the Sentinelese, who shot arrows and threw stones as the aircraft flew over the coastline.
Vatican Secret Archives, Vatican
From proof of alien life to proof of Jesus having a wife, its all been speculated. Buried deep within the walls of Vatican City, and mostly underground, are the Vatican Secret Archives, which house the immense history of the acts of the Holy See, along with historic documents, state papers, papal account books, and other official correspondence, some of which dates back to the eighth century.
Mystery and intrigue are inherent to the Holy See. People will always wonder what religious authorities are conspiring to behind closed doors, what treasures lie within the vaults of the Vatican.

Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway
Deep inside a mountain on a remote island in the Svalbard archipelago, halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole, lies the Global Seed Vault. The Svalbard Global Seed Vault is a vast subterranean seed bank and storage facility on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, around 800 miles from the North Pole, built 400 feet into a mountainside. Officially opened in February 2008, the facility now stores around 840,000 samples of 4000 different species of seeds, from all over the world.
Bucegi Mountains, Romania
In 2009, the book Transylvanian Sunrise was published, causing a stir in the paranormal research community. The book chronicles a “discovery” under the Romanian Sphinx located in the Bucegi Mountains.
The book discusses a joint effort between the U.S. and Romanian governments to explore tunnels under the sphinx that lead to rooms that possessed advanced technology. Most of the world believes the book to be a work of fiction. However, there are a select few that claim the book is true and the two governments are hiding a find that would change mankind forever.
In the book there are described two possible entrances: first one is the Ialomicioara Cave that has an entire church built at it's entrance and it is guarded by monks 24/7 with several parts of it restricted for public visitors, while the second one is Ratei Cave. This one is completely closed to the public with metal doors and even professional speleologists are not allowed to visit.
So, it can be a very well documented book that created a legend or just a big coincidence, but the reality clearly shows you are restricted to digg deeper!
Room 39, North Korea
Room 39 is a secretive North Korean party organization that seeks ways to maintain the foreign currency slush fund for the country's leaders. Contrary to most people's beliefs, North Korea's Room 39 is not only a physical location but also an organization. However, it is one of the most important funds in North Korea. It is one of the primary source of money that helps build their nation.
Mount Ararat, Turkey
Most Christians identify Mount Ararat with the biblical "mountains of Ararat," despite the fact that six other landing places have been proposed, "largely because it would have been the first peak to emerge from the receding flood waters." Ararat is where the European tradition and most of Western Christianity place the landing of Noah's Ark. Since the mid-1990's, the use of the Internet has enabled ark researchers to better communicate and coordinate research information and options. With advanced communication and high-tech research tools, i.e., high resolution satellite imagery, ground penetrating radar, unmanned aircraft, and many other techniques, we can now safely say that we have the capability to answer the question as to whether actual remains of Noah's Ark are still existent today.
Ararat was declared a military restricted zone and climbers as well as any type of research were banned from the mountain. The reasons are not yet clear
Bohemian Grove, USA
Bohemian Grove is a restricted 2,700-acre (1,100 ha) campground located at 20601 Bohemian Avenue, in Monte Rio, California, belonging to a private San Francisco–based gentlemen's club known as the Bohemian Club. In mid-July each year, Bohemian Grove hosts a more than two-week encampment of some of the most prominent men in the world. Past presidents such as Richard Nixon and Herbert Hoover are known to have attended.
Private meetings at this retreat were directly responsible for the Manhattan project - the project that led to the development of the atomic bomb.
The Mormon Church Secret Vault, USA
The Granite Mountain Records Vault (also known simply as The Vault) is a large archive and vault owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) excavated 600 feet into the north side of Little Cottonwood Canyon. The Granite Mountain facilities feature a dry, environment-controlled facility used for long-term record storage, as well as administrative offices, shipping and receiving docks, a processing facility and restoration laboratory for microfilm.
Records stored include genealogical and family history information contained in over 2.4 million rolls of microfilm and 1 million microfiche. This equals about three billion pages of family history records. The vault's library of microfilm increases by up to 40,000 rolls per year.
Tours are given of the front of the vaults but much of it is off limit.
