On our planet about 200 countries and more than 2,5 million cities, in each of which by all means are something curious for tourists. But nevertheless among them there are special places which as if move you to the shooting stage of a certain movie.
Without long preface we suggest you to enter these 10 places which as if have descended from sketches of art directors of different genres of cinema in the list of travel.
In the mouth of this river it would be possible to shoot thrillers or horror films during the whole year. The matter is that there is a unique natural phenomenon: along the coast nearly an every night (more precisely, up to 200 nights in a year) there is an infinite number of lightnings as if there lives Zeus. Also they hit almost into the same place. On a plasma sphere of Tesla probably whether you know.
In 2000 the small Kaluga small village under Nicol Idler's name suddenly becomes object of the modern art, the venue of the Arkhstoyaniye festival, numerous installations, and later — the whole trend art park. Really live scenery to the movie by some modern Tarkovsky.
Frequent fog, big boulders, storm and cold current turn this part of the coast of the Namib Desert into the real Bermuda Triangle for the ships and whales. Only present a picture: in the place where the boundless desert connects to the storming ocean, in sands and between waves skeletons of the sunk once majestic ships lie. Similar to Davey Jones's hiding place — the boundless desert with "A black pearl" where Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of the Caribbean Sea" has got, you remember?
Addiction of Hungarians to ponavesit all stuff on walls finds apogee of the embodiment exactly here — in a huge 2-storey squat of Szimpla Kert. Those who were here will confirm that the phenomenon this unique: in the half-ruined building in the center of the capital there are many halls where it is possible and to drink strong drinks and to sit at a fire both to estimate unprecedented installations and to dance under acid DJs. Generally, dream of the art director of arthouse cinema!
Big-Meydzhor-Kaye is a desert island in the Caribbean Sea. Well as uninhabited: there are no people here, but there live wonderful floating pigs. The most curious that nobody knows how pigs have suddenly taken away to themselves the whole Bahama island, but the most widespread versions are constructed around the fact that they have got from the ship here — cargo after the crash, or with piracy in the form of a food island grist which hasn't been used then. Anyway animals haven't become puzzled and haven't just survived on the desert island, but also have learned to swim. And that, quite to a good location for some philosophical movie: in a black-and-white shot the hero could argue on life against the background of the bathing pigs.
In the first photo can seem that the guy is photographed against the background of the frozen winter lake. Actually this dried-up salty lake in hot Bolivia. And it can be presented to the viewer in absolutely different form: during a rainy season this huge mirror in which the sky is reflected (because of a thin sheet of water) during a drought it becomes covered by picturesque 6-coal crusts, and at sunset it is pink. Along its coast huge cactuses grow, lamas run and there live flamingos. Picture and only!
Per-Lashez is a place which turns death into greatness. The legendary cemetery of the French capital is the place of concentration of the most beautiful sculptures, crowds of tourists and, of course, incalculable quantity of the immortal celebrities buried here (here some people that you have understood scale of the place: Balzac, Molière, Delacroix, Chopin, Bizet, Edith Piaf, Jim Morrison). The last, by the way, in at one time was wanted "to be moved" from the cemetery because of slightly excentric behavior of his fans who directly at a grave bawled The Doors songs, smoked marijuana and generously scattered stubs. In general, admirers of different celebrities have different traditions. The tombstone of Oscar Wilde, for example, is covered with prints of female lips: admirers of the writer consider a duty to kiss Wilde's grave that, by the way, is shown in one of short stories of the movie "Paris, I Love You".
In due time Peter Jackson, having refused the idea of cardboard scenery, I have traveled all over all New Zealand in search of an ideal landscape for the real Scheer's construction. And such place was — one of farms on the suburb of the village of Matamata which is called in any way differently as Hobbiton now, has been blocked by military (for preservation of a secret before a premiere) and reconstructed in the real hobbitova the small village with gardens, kitchen gardens, mills and 37 houses holes. Now this place of a pilgrimage of tolkinist. Unfortunately, in lodges it is impossible to enter, but here to sit in a tavern, to drink elfin ale and to buy an absolute power ring — please.
The picturesque port located between the ocean and hills is considered one of the most unusual Latin American cities. Ragged houses, infinite labyrinths from old color lodges with numerous graffiti make an impression which is as well as possible described by one of tourists: "To receive Valparaiso, it is necessary to take a handful of the Italian Sorrento, to add there couple of spoons of old Lisbon, long to cook all this, and at the end to season San Francisco with his sensible indifference". Ideal scenery for easy, slightly nostalgic romkom.
The Austrian settlement of Hallstatt clamped between the lake of the same name and the Alps — the real black pearl of Austria and also a monument of the World heritage of UNESCO. A foot here so narrow that even the station had to be built on the opposite coast of the lake, and directly to the settlement to solve a problem of transportation of passengers numerous boats. In general, the town reminds a picture from some fairy tale. For example, here the German school of magic from Harry Potter's Universe quite could be located.
