We all remember the fairy tales from our childhood, don’t we? The one with Snow White has some important parts with the mirror! Well, we found a place that is called “the largest mirror in the world”. This gave us the idea to find 5 of the most interesting places of the world that we must see and present them to you.

salar-de-uyuni-bolivia

Like we said, the first most interesting is this place from Bolivia, Salar de Uyuni. Almost five thousand square miles of salt and graveyard with salt hotels and hot springs. The entire area is very interesting, from the geographical, geological and climate point of view which makes Bolivia an important economic player. Salar means salt flat in Spanish and Uyuni comes from the Aymara language and it is translated as enclosure. From strange shaped islands in a sea of blindingly bright salt to delicately colored mineral lakes in the Andean mountains, this is an unforgettable Bolivian landscape. While it is normally an arid, barren surface of salt, creating one of the least inhabitable areas of the world, during the rainy season, Salar de Uyuni becomes one of the world’s largest mirrors.

Chittorgarh Fort, India

This impregnable Indian fort has witnessed three battles, remaining victorious each time. The fort, plainly known as Chittor, sprawls majestically over a hill above the plains of the valley drained by the Berach River. The fort can proudly brag with a series of historical palaces, gates, temples and two prominent commemoration towers. These monumental ruins have inspired the imagination of tourists, writers and art lovers for a long time now, therefore making 2nd place in our top. So if you’re feeling a little artsy, Chittorgarh Fort is one of the best places in world to visit, who knows, maybe you are the next Michael Jackson or William Shakespeare and don’t even know it yet.

Cinque Terre, Rio Maggiore, Italy

Riomaggiore, Italy is the savior of the inhabitants of the Vara valley that, searching for a friendly climate to raise grapevines and olive-trees without the fear of pirate raids, moved towards the coast. Outside the danger, protected on the colossal cliff and unceasing ocean, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the most incredible view over the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars can’t reach them from the outside world. The peace and quiet that defines this place leaves us no other choice but placing this beautiful place on our number 3 spot.

The smell of pine cones and fresh mountain air, mixed with a view of the perfect turquoise water makes the Banff National Park a corner of paradise.

The Twelve Apostles

Port Campbell National Park, Victoria, Australia, a breathtaking place, home of the massive apostles. Some might say they are the guardians of the shore, protecting it from harm’s way. They were formed by erosion, due to the extreme weather conditions from the Southern Ocean. The limestone was gradually eroded into caves in the cliffs, which then collapsed leaving rock stacks on the beach at about 45 meters high. The interesting thing is that the apostles change their color, from dark to brilliant sandy yellow under a bright sun. Definitely a place worth visiting, one ticket to Australia, please!
