10. Global Seed Vault, Svalbard, Norway
Svalbard Global Seed Vault opened in 2008 on the island of Spitzbergen. 250 million seed samples are stored there. It was created so that people can restore any plant. The island is a perfect place for storing seeds because there is practically no seismic activity and it is high above sea level.
