1 - ADX Penitentiary Florence, United States
This prison is called "clean version of hell"... and the name says it all. There are no cameras, there is no human contact, there is no panoramic view, it is impossible to escape there is no possibility of escaping control: in over 20 years of activity, only 7 inmates have managed to commit suicide, an average far below that of any other prison.
At ADX Florence one of the most dangerous criminals in the world is being held: this is Unabomber, the mastermind behind the World Trade Center bomb (1993).
2 - Secret Archives of the Vatican, Vatican City
Just one small part of the clergy e qualified scholars they are admitted to the secret archives of the Vatican, and even once they have obtained access it is not possible to consult the documentation without having first received approval. What is behind this secret? Why is an archive not available to everyone? The gossips speak of several elements that cannot emerge, including numerous Apocryphal Gospels that contradict the Bible.
3 - Queen Elizabeth's bedrooms, United Kingdom
Queen Elizabeth also has a bedroom, or rather more than one, and they are all located inside Buckingham Palace. No one besides her and her loyal attendants can access it, indeed the rooms are even protected by secret doors, and only a few know where they are.
4 - Federal Reserve Bank of New York, USA
In the neighborhood of Manhattan is one of the most secret and inaccessible places in the whole United States: it is the Federal Reserve Bank, a vault so impenetrable that not even men can access it. Gold and bullion are moved by robots, and many foreign governments also use this place to store their treasure.
5 - Secret Coca Cola recipe, Coca Cola Museum, USA
Still the United States hides an absolutely inaccessible place: let's talk about the secret recipe of Coca Cola, the most drunk beverage in the world whose original formula is one of the most coveted and best hidden documents on the face of the earth. The original recipe document, written by Asa Candler's son in 1919, is contained in a vault in the Coca Cola Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. The formula vault was previously stored in the vault of the Sun Trust Bank in Atlanta.
6 - Tumen River, China, Russia, North Korea
The Tumen River marks part of the border between Russia and North Korea, and partly flows into China as well. With a short trip, through this river you can escape from North Korea and go to Russia: the stream is therefore ideal for those who want to desert, and for this reason it is strictly controlled by North Korean soldiers. Nobody can access it.
7 - Varosha, Cyprus
Famagusta district totally abandoned following the clashes between Cypriots and Greeks and Cypriots and Turks. Once a popular tourist spot in Cyprus, with many luxury beachfront hotels, the Turkish army in 1974 closed the neighborhood with a barbed fence to deny access to anyone. Even today the neighborhood is deserted and no one has the opportunity to enter.
8 - Iranian gold reserve, place unknown
Nobody knows for sure where Iran's gold reserve is located: many conjectures and many hypotheses, but still no confirmation. It is only known that Iran has managed to bring its reserve, previously held in Europe, back within its borders to avoid financial pressure from the US and the UK.
9 - Metro 2 of Moscow, Russia
Many believe that Moscow has a Metro system parallel to the popular one: a secret system built in the Stalin era and never denied by the Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) or by the Moscow administration. It is believed that this parallel system exceeds the official one in length, and that connect the Kremlin directly with the FSB and the airport.
10 - Area 51, USA
Another secret and inaccessible place in the United States closes our ranking: it is Area 51, a nickname given to a military base located in southern Nevada. It is a large secret military airport in which experimental aircraft and weapons are tested.
