Top 10 Places You Can’t Go

1. Mezhgorye is a closed town in Russia which is believed to house people working on the highly secret Mount Yamantaw.

It is suspected by the United States of being a large secret nuclear facility or bunker. Repeated U.S. questions have yielded several different responses from the Russian government regarding Mount Yamantaw. They have said it is a mining site, a repository for Russian treasures, a food storage area, and a bunker for leaders in case of nuclear war.

2. The Vatican Secret Archives are not secret despite their names. You can view any document you wish as long as it is more than 75 years old (in order to protect diplomatic and governmental information). But you cannot enter the archive. You must submit your request for a document and it will be supplied to you.

The Vatican Secret Archives have been estimated to contain 52 miles of shelving.

3. Contrary to popular belief, Disneyland has a full liquor license which is used when the place closes down to the general public to accommodate private parties. But there is one place in Disneyland that is always open to sell booze: Club 33.

Club 33 is a private club located in the heart of the New Orleans Square section of Disneyland. Fees for joining go up to $30,000 thousand and you have to go to the end of the fourteen year waiting list

4. Metro-2 in Moscow, Russia is a purported secret underground metro system which parallels the public Moscow Metro.

The system was built supposedly during the time of Stalin and codenamed D-6 by the KGB. It is said to have 4 lines and lie 50 to 200 meters deep. Needless to say, the fact that no one confirms its existence makes it pretty difficult to visit.

5. White’s Gentlemen’s Club is the most exclusive English club. The club is famous for its betting book, in which members make bizarre gambles — the most famous of which is a 3,000 pound bet on which of two raindrops would slide down the window first.

Women are excluded completely from membership, and men who want to join this exclusive club can only do so if invited by a sitting member who has the support of two other members. Unless you are a member of royalty, or are extremely powerful in politics or the arts, you are unlikely to ever see a White’s invitation.

6. Area 51 is a nickname for a military base that is located in the southern portion of Nevada in the western United States, 83 miles north-northwest of downtown Las Vegas. Situated at its center is a large secretive military airfield.

The intense secrecy surrounding the base, the very existence of which the U.S. government barely acknowledges, has made it the frequent subject of conspiracy theories.

7. Room 39 (or Bureau 39) is arguably one of the most secretive organizations in North Korea.

Very little is known about Room 39 due to the secretive nature surrounding the organization, but it is widely speculated that the organization uses 10 to 20 bank accounts in China and Switzerland for the purposes of counterfeiting, money laundering, and other illicit transactions. It is also alleged that Room 39 is involved in drug smuggling and illicit weapon sales. Room 39 is believed to be located inside a ruling Workers’ Party building in Pyongyang, the capital city of North Korea

8. The Ise Grand Shrine in Japan (which is actually a series of over 100 shrines) is the most sacred shrine in Japan. It is dedicated to Amaterasu (the Sun goddess) and has been in existence since 4 BC.

The shrine is demolished and rebuilt every 20 years. The only person who can enter is the priest or priestess and he or she must be a member of the Japanese imperial family.

9. Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center is a place that is not only closed to the public, but it is a place that the public hope to never have to enter!

In most end of the world films these days, there is always a highly classified area where U.S. government officials and a chosen few get to go in the hopes that they can escape the impending doom. The Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center is the real thing. The center is already functioning and even during small local disasters in the U.S., much of the telecommunications traffic is routed through it.

10. RAF Menwith Hill is a British military base with connections to the global ECHELON spy network. The site contains an extensive satellite ground station and is a communications intercept and missile warning site and has been described as the largest electronic monitoring station in the world.
