Atlas Obscura is the definitive guide to the world's wondrous and curious places. In an age where everything seems to have been explored and there is nothing new to be found, we celebrate a different way of looking at the world. If you're searching for miniature cities, glass flowers, books bound in human skin, gigantic flaming holes in the ground, bone churches, balancing pagodas, or homes built out of paper, Atlas Obscura is where you'll find them. Atlas Obscura is a collaborative project. We depend on our community of far-flung explorers (like you!) to help us discover amazing, hidden spots. If you know of a curious place that's not already in the Atlas, let us know. There is plenty out there to discover, so let's start looking!
