Visiting all the popular tourist locations is all well and good, but have you ever thought about visiting some of the more unusual locations? Not only can this bring to you some of the best memories that you have but it is also likely to be far less busy. So before you grab your ehic card replacement, sit back and come along with us as we guide you through some of Europe’s most unusual locations.
One of the most unusual locations to visit in Europe is Kjeragbolten in Norway. This beautiful hiking trail has some of the best views in all the country with an unusual sight at the summit. Located in the south of the country, this outstanding hiking trail is 7.5 miles of pure wonder. Though this is quite a difficult hike to conquer the stunning views and unusual rock dangling with 1000 meters of empty space below make for the perfect photo opportunity to show your family and friends.
Green Lake, Austria
Surrounded by the Hochschwab mountains in the heart of Austria, this stunning natural location is one that has to be seen to be believed. Though this lake is normally only one meter deep, it can flood to as many as 12 meters emerging footpaths and benches that would once be used by visitors. During this time of the year, the water is so cold that it can only be explored either by scuba diving or snorkelling creating the perfect underwater world for you to explore. This underwater world is complete with a bridge, bench and even trees making this a paradise for those that wish to take the plunge into the icy water.
One of the most famous locations on this list of unusual places is Pripyat in Ukraine. Since the horrific events that took place over 30 years ago, the city has been left completely abandoned. The city was evacuated during the disaster with toys and rooms left exactly as they were. Not only this, but the unopened Pripyat amusement park is also left abandoned with the ferris wheel left towering over the part. Though this unusual location is still uninhabitable due to the outpour of radiation from the infamous reactor number 4, it is possible to have a one- or two-day tour around the area to see what remains.
Museo Atlantico, Canary Islands
Another highly unusual location for a holiday is the underwater museum in the Canary Islands. This unusual location is another that is perfect for those that love scuba diving as there is plenty for you to see. With over 300 sculptures all placed 50 feet deep under water, these human sculptures not only make the perfect home for schools of fish, but they are also the perfect location for you to visit something unusual with your friends and family. Not only can you get a tour on a glass-bottomed boat, but you also have the choice to scuba dive around the museum seeing it up close and personal creating an experience like no other.
Regardless of the locations that you choose to visit, there are a number of locations all over Europe that can bring you hours of fun with your friends and family, as well as the perfect photo opportunity.
