There are many places on our planet that are really hard or even impossible to get to. As a rule, these places are the most intriguing.

Bright Side collected 6 secret places around the world that are impossible to enter.

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.

HavenCo, Sealand

The data center was opened in 2000 in Sealand. Its owner, HavenCo, thought this was how they could get around a British law. It closed in 2008 but was opened again in 2013.

"Pionen" Bunker, Stockholm, Sweden

The data centers of Bahnhof are situated in a cave 100 feet underground. This bunker was built in 1943 as a fallout shelter. There are live plants, artificial waterfalls, and a huge aquarium inside. This is how the company creates a nice atmosphere for its employees.

RAF Menwith Hill Base, Yorkshire, Great Britain

This place was built in 1954 for catching signals during the Cold War. It is unknown what is going on there now, but this is the biggest storage of intelligence data in the world.

Vatican Secret Archives

This is considered to be the most secret library in the world. All the documents of the Popes have been stored here since the VII century. Only a research officer can enter the archives with special permission, which is extremely difficult to obtain.

Bold Lane Car Park, Derbyshire, Great Britain

This car park is one of the safest places in the world. Drivers get special barcode-tickets that are synchronized with their parking space. Under each car is a movement sensor that runs the alarm in case someone moves the car without permission. There are 190 surveillance cameras in the facility.
