25. Chernobyl Sarcophagus
When you think of Chernobyl you think of disaster, and that is exactly what you find if you visit the town of Pripyat in the Ukraine.
The site is the location of the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor, and reactor 1 is now covered with a massive protective sarcophagus that keeps the deadly radiation inside.
Only authorised people are allowed inside the building and long term exposure to the internal parts of the sarcophagus could lead to death within weeks.
Even visiting the town outside requires you to have a radiation detector at all times, stay away from certain areas and be accompanied by an armed guard from the Russian military.
24. Fort Knox
Its known as one of the most secure places on the planet and is located in Kentucky south of Louisville and north of Elizabeth-town.

Layers of security include wire fences, guard towers both on the building and the perimeter, motion detection systems both on the building and in the ground and the whole site is right next door to one of the biggest military bases in the state.
Inside, the vault can only be unlocked with 3 people present and some of the security features include bio-metric iris and fingerprint scanning.
The whole complex is built in a massive open space that allows those working there to see exactly who’s coming, long before they arrive.
The vault features a 25 Ton blast door and granite walls that can withstand a nuclear strike.
Its even rumoured to contain a SAM missile defence system and several snipers on its ramparts.
23. Queens Bedroom

Her bedroom is located within the complex and it has 24 hour security and bio-metric access.
Outside the residence police and the queens own personal guards keep watch over her home 24/7
Its not the most secure place on the planet however, as in …. a man was able to get into the room by using a ladder.
The outer perimeter of the palace has guards with sniffer dogs and YES they are armed.
22. Area 51
Possibly one of the most famous places on our list, its been the site of the most famous conspiracy theories on the planet.
Located in the Nevada desert this complex is protected by a large security force that includes the american air-force, army and a selection of secretive personnel called cammo dudes.
Rumours say that the area around the base is covered in land mines and a mass of in-ground sensors can detect the difference between a human and an animal.
The roads leading into the complex have CCTV and signs warn those who enter that deadly force is authorised if they cross the lines.
21. Coca Cola Vault
Housing one of the most secret soft drink recipes in the worlds is the Coca Cola Vault.

The formula had been stored in a vault in the SunTrust Bank in Atlanta before it was moved to the new site.
Visitors to the attraction can go through a multimedia experience that allows you to create your own brand of Coca Cola and see how it stands up to the current recipe.
The recipe was previously stored in a secure train car and before that a mysterious room called the triangle room.
20. Svalbard Seed Vault
With the threat of world extermination ever present, several governments around the world decided to create a safe vault to store a copy of all of the words seeds in-case of emergency.
The Vault is the ultimate insurance policy for the world’s food supply, offering options for future generations to overcome the challenges of climate change and population growth.
The Seed Vault has the capacity to store 4.5 million varieties of crops. Each variety will contain on average 500 seeds, so a maximum of 2.5 billion seeds may be stored in the Vault.
A temperature of -18ºC is required for optimal storage of the seeds, which are stored and sealed in custom made three-ply foil packages.
The packages are sealed inside boxes and stored on shelves inside the vault which is buried deep under the permafrost that allows it to remain frozen, even without power.
19. Room 39 North Korea
Located in the secretive communist country of North Korea lies a secret building in the countries capital Pyongyang.
Known’s as room 39, this building is thought to channel illegal money to the nations current leader Kim Jong Un.
Its thought that monies collected for the royal court economy, the proceeds which allow hom to buy expensive gifts for loyal followers all flow through this building.
Don’t expect to get anywhere near it tho, as not only is going to North Korea extremely dangerous, if your caught doing anything wrong you could face years in a workers camp or worse.
Not to mention that your time in the country is closely watched by a group of minders at ALL times.

17. The Lascaux Caves, France
This set of caves in Southwestern France has one of the largest sets of wall painted murals in the world.
The 600 wall paintings that depict deer, horses and cows are thought to have been painted roughly 17,000 years ago.
With the opening of the caves after world war 2, many of the paintings on the walls started to fade and the caves were shut as a result, to protect the images inside.
Mould had begun to grow on the cave walls an the caves have remained shut to the public since 2001

Running parallel to the public underground system in Moscow is a secret tube system that was built during the reign of Stalin and nicknamed D-6 by the KGB.
It’s rumoured that the underground system dwarfs the public Metro with 4 lines that run between 50-200m deep allowing the Kremlin to connect directly with FSB HQ, the government airport and even an underground town.
When the FSB was asked about the tunnels, they neither confirmed or denied there existence, fuelling the rumours even further.
This site is known as Australia’s Area 51 and is home to what has recently been described as a monitoring station and military base that conducts secret drone strikes.
The whole area sits under a no fly zone, is run by the Australian government and the CIA, and is located somewhere in the centre of the country.
Hardly any other information is known about the site… its that secret.

Ark of the Covenant also known as the Ark of the Testimony, is a gold-covered wooden chest described in the Book of Exodus as containing the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments.

The Chapel of the Tablet at the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Axum allegedly houses the original Ark of the Covenant although its thought to be kept in a secure armoury nearby and is defiantly not public.
The strangest thing about this part of our list is that its currently more of a myth as the controlling factors refuse to reveal the ark.
6. Cheynenne Mountain
Buried deep under Cheynenne Mountain is a military installation and nuclear bunker located in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The base has its own built in power plant, water system and cooling system with the base able to handle thousands of personnel.

The base is well known for featuring heavily in the TV program Stargate-SG1

Another underground fortress similar to that of fort know in the USA, The Bank of England Vaults hold some of the largest gold deposits in the world.
Its thought gold stored here could total somewhere in the region of $248 billion dollars and totals 6,256 tonnes taking up 300,000 sq feet of space.
The vaults have to be accessed by several 3FT long keys and this is still considered safer than just having electronic access although this also exists within the complex.
Visitors have to speak a password into a microphone that matches voices to a select few saved samples and temperature controls, CCTV and motion detectors are also thought to exist.
4. Mount Weather Virginia
Home to the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Operation Centre, this base also goes under the name of The High Point Special Facility.

Large excavation projects have been observed by U.S. satellite imagery as recently as the late 1990s, during the time of Boris Yeltsin’s government after the fall of the Soviet Union
1. Surtsey Island
Surtsey is a Volcanic Island located approximately 32 km from the south coast of Iceland
