The Best Destinations for Anyone Who Loves Weird History

Traveling is a beautiful and rewarding experience; that’s something most of us already know. However, there is so much more to it than just eating local cuisine and visiting museums. Especially if you’re someone interested in history and strange places. Do you also enjoy traveling for the love of learning new things and exploring ancient cultures and historical sites? Then here are some of our favorite destinations with a really weird historical background. I give you, the best destinations for anyone who loves weird history.

Canada Lake Anjikuni 

The Village of the Dead is a spooky location located in rural Nunavut, Canada’s Kivallig Region. The location claims a long history of mysterious disappearances, but one evening in November 1930 made it particularly well-known. Investigations have been unable to determine the whereabouts of an entire Inuit hamlet that vanished without a trace. Since then, rumors of aliens, ghosts, and even vampires have circulated in this den of weird history.

Peru’s Nazca Lines 

The Nazca Lines are some of the most remarkable and enigmatic prehistoric relics in the entire continent of South America. These geoglyphs are scratching their way across the dry desert landscapes of southern Peru. They attract a fair number of tourists each year. Most people like to do flyovers to enjoy the magnificent sights from above, which is when the intriguing geoglyphs showing spiders and monkeys are clearly visible. No one is completely sure why the ancient Nazca people created these structures. However, today this has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Transylvania, Romania 


The spooky ambiance of this expansive region in the very center of Romania is enhanced by sylvan hills and mist-covered mountains, the clanging echo of church bells, and the stone-built medieval steeples of towns like Sibiu, Brasov, and Cluj. But Bran Castle is the one location that truly sends shivers down one’s spine. This citadel rises from the Wallachian forest’s edge in a jumble of Gothic towers and roofs covered in gargoyles. It has been linked to a number of cryptic characters over the years, Count Dracula is the most well-known in this den of weird history.

Arizona’s Superstition Mountain 

According to local lore, a man by the name of Jacob Waltz uncovered a massive gold mine in these mountains in the 19th century. Though it’s possible he told one other person about the place on his deathbed, he carried the secret location with him to the grave. Since then, numerous expeditions to locate the Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine have been launched, but each one has proven fatal — explorers have entered and never emerged. Additionally, some Native Americans think that hell’s entrance is hidden in the mountains.

Stonehenge, England 


Stonehenge has always radiated mystique and enchantment. And that’s not only because of its location in the heart of the lush lowlands of south-central England. The Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire, Wales, about 200 miles away, are believed to have provided the rare bluestone material that was used to construct this circular collection of enormous megalith stones. Both the reason for the building’s construction and how the Neolithic people managed to move such massive stone all that distance are shrouded in mystery.
