If you enjoy discovering very unique attractions, this map is definitely for you.
Some might even be close to your home, perfect for a summer roadtrip.
One of the reasons we launched Flytrippers and decided to spot great discounted flight deals to many destinations around the world is because we love discovering new places ourselves.
Obviously, there are the can’t-miss tourist attraction, the popular sights. You’ve got to go there, there’s a reason everyone wants to see them.
But there are also sights that are more unique, eccentric and downright bizarre… and those too can be very interesting!
So we want to make sure you know about this interactive map that contains over 11,000 of those extraordinary attractions, to make your life easier when looking for uncommon travel stories… and to inspire you.

I’ve been following this website for a couple of years, it is called AtlasObscura and it is awesome to discover places that are definitely more outside-the-box. As the name says, these sights are more obscure and unique and since I love trivia and very out-there stats and facts, I love using this map before I go on a trip.
Just to give you an example of what I mean, thanks to this map I discovered that the highest observation deck located in a bridge tower in the world was just around the corner in Maine, so I went… I mean, it’s the highest in the world!!! This is also how I discovered that once per year, hundreds of people throw themselves off a bridge in West Virginia to BASE jump, and it happened to be occurring while I was in that area so I have another cool travel story to tell.
Anyway, that’s what unique sights and attractions are all about, personally I love seeing (and collecting) these places. AtlasObscura calls them hidden wonders: amazing, surprising and unusual.
There are natural wonders, architectural oddities and thousands of less-known spots that are just fascinating to discover, all over the world. Of course, the map contains pictures, a description, and often a detailed article about the story behind the sight. Hours and hours of exploring this map await.
What is also awesome is that you can add places to the map yourself, if you know a noteworthy spot that is unique and you want to share it with others who are passionate about exploring our world, even the weird parts.
One example: Skeleton Lake. Photo Credit: AtlasObscura
So, out of the 11,000 I have to warn you, a lot of them won’t appeal to you, and that’s fine, because there are very niche things in there sometimes. Their criterion is that the place is unique in the world, and they prefer to have more than enough spots on the map. That’s why there is an impressive number of dots. But without a doubt, you will find many that will fuel your wanderlust!
Click here to explore the map and don’t forget to check it out before leaving on your next trip. And even before that, the map has many sights in North America that are maybe close to you that you’ve never discovered… that way you can keep exploring, even when real life keeps you from traveling!
This is a very useful map, you should definitely explore it.
Some might even be close to your home. Discovered something crazy? Tell us about it below!

Sights of Kaliningrad on the map, what to see – description, addresses, scheme
Main page / Russia / Sights of Kaliningrad
The point is not only that the Kaliningrad region is separated from the rest of the country by the territories of neighboring states. One way or another, but all regions of Russia have experienced throughout their history the powerful influence of Russian culture and statehood, with the exception of the westernmost region. Western European, or rather, Germanic culture dominated here for centuries. East Prussia was not just an integral part of the German world, it dominated it. Therefore, a tourist trip to Kaliningrad introduces, in fact, a city of the German type. Most of the sights of Kaliningrad date back to the period when the city was called Koenigsberg, they give a rough idea of the construction methods, architecture and general layout of buildings and streets of that period.
Cathedral in Kaliningrad
The majestic building, standing on a small island in the middle of the river, was built in the 13th-14th centuries. and is perhaps the oldest surviving city building. At first, the temple served as a Catholic cathedral, and after the reformation it became the main Lutheran church of Königsberg. It can be considered an example of the architectural style that later became known as the Baltic Gothic. For a long time after the war, the building was in a deplorable state. But today the cathedral appears before visitors in an updated, restored form.
st. Kanta, 1
Most of the townspeople do not know that the cathedral on the island is consecrated in honor of the Virgin Mary and St. Adalbert. But everyone knows where the “grave of Kant” is located. The founder of German classical philosophy is buried in the “professorial” chapel of the city’s cathedral. The name of Immanuel Kant gives additional interest to excursions to the cathedral, and adds historical significance to the entire island.
st. Kanta, 1
The popular name of the Kneiphof Island, on which the main sights of Kaliningrad are located, is the cathedral with the grave mentioned above. One of the favorite vacation spots of the townspeople. The territory of the island has been landscaped and turned into a park pedestrian zone. The island offers excellent views of the panorama of the old quarters of Königsberg.
Cathedral of the Exaltation of the Cross
The church is active, therefore it is not considered only a tourist attraction. The temple was built on another river island, formerly it was called Lomze, now Oktyabrsky. The building impresses with a giant majolica panel arranged in a niche of the western portal and built in an Art Nouveau style unusual for the old Koenigsberg. Of interest is the unique amber iconostasis.
st. Generala Pavlova, 2
Cathedral of Christ the Savior
The cathedral was built in 2007 and consecrated by Patriarch Alexy II. The Vladimir-Suzdal temple tradition is taken as a stylistic basis. The white-stone 51-meter building is crowned with five gilded domes. The temple can accommodate 3,000 believers and is the main department of the Kaliningrad diocese. The church was erected in the center of the city – on Victory Square.
sq. Pobeda, 2
Church of the Holy Family
It is considered the best work of Heitmann, a famous architect in his time. The building is remarkable in that it reflects the general style of the construction of Lutheran churches in the Baltic States. A pronounced neo-Gothic style, a minimum of ornamental details on the facade, strict symmetry. Tourists can get inside only by buying a ticket for a concert, the main hall of the church is given to the regional philharmonic society. Excellent acoustics and a powerful Czech-made organ make it possible to hold regular musical evenings and concerts here.
st. Bogdana Khmelnitsky, 61A
Those wishing to visit this Kaliningrad attraction should drive to the Upper Lake and go to the Don Tower. The round fort of impressive size is the best fit for the exhibition. Ring galleries with niches seem to be specially made to present collections; it is convenient to walk along them, knowing that you will not miss anything. The plant in Yantarny regularly replenishes museum funds with new exhibits. Here you can see both raw four-kilogram blocks and fine jewelry. Tourists, of course, are attracted by the opportunity to buy not “linden”, but souvenirs and jewelry made from real Baltic amber.
sq. Marshala Vasilevsky, 1
Today, a practically non-existent building. Once it was the center of the social life of the city, it was distinguished by its rich decoration and original architecture. The ruins left after the war were blown up by order of the authorities. Archaeological excavations are underway at the site of the castle, it is believed that an amber room could be stored in its cellars.
3 walking tours
Located next to the Don Tower, organizationally they are part of the Amber Museum. In the former blockhouse of the gate, a good cafe has been set up, where you can relax, eat and admire the Upper Lake and the surrounding area.
sq. Marshala Vasilevskogo, 3A
Museum of the World Ocean
The Pregolya River is navigable, it communicates with the Gulf of Riga, which made it possible to navigate and place ships that have served their time near the museum embankment. Each of the standing ships is famous for something. Here is a vessel that carried out communication with space in the ocean, and a combat submarine, and a scientific vessel, and a simple-looking, but gloriously hard-working fishing seiner. The male part of the population is especially attracted by a tour of the compartments of a submarine; in Russia, this is the only such exhibit.
emb. Peter the Great, 1
This is one of the oldest buildings belonging to the Museum of the World Ocean. Inside the gate there is an exhibition of traditional small ships, a small shipyard for the restoration of nautical rarities. Visitors will be interested in the collection of ship models and navigational instruments.
Portovaya St., 39
If you drive along Bagration Street, you will not pass under one of the two arches made of red burnt bricks. This is the Brandenburg Gate. Unlike other similar urban buildings, they look bright and festive, thanks to the rich ornamental decoration. It is noteworthy that the gate still performs its direct function.
st. Bagrationa, 137
A typical building of the middle of the 19th century. with the stylistic decisions inherent in that period. Now a very interesting local history exposition is located in the inner space of the gate. The history of Koenigsberg is represented by the most modern means. With the help of computer technology, an exciting virtual journey through the city streets of the old city of the beginning of the last century is carried out. Also noteworthy is an exhibition dedicated to an unusual topic – the history of the emergence and development of sewer systems.
st. Dzerzhinsky, 30
Probably the most beautiful of the city gates that have survived to this day. It is impossible to drive along Frunze Street and not notice this bright solemn building. At the beginning of this century, the building was officially ranked as the Museum of the World Ocean, it became its branch. The premises of the gate were equipped for an exposition dedicated to a significant event in the history of relations between Prussia and Russia – a visit to the city by the Great Embassy, which included young Peter the Great.
st. Frunze, 112
Kaliningrad photo artists organize regular exhibitions of contemporary art in the central span of the gate. Here you can also have a cup of coffee in the institution “Bread and Turk”.
st. Lithuanian Val, 61
Fort No. 5
Visiting this fortress, you can imagine what difficulties the Soviet troops had to face in capturing the city. A tour of the caponiers, casemates, internal galleries of the citadel tells about the structure of the fort, the organization of fire and combat supplies. Today, the fort has the status of a museum, samples of weapons of the Soviet Army are installed on its sites, thematic excursions are held.
SNT Dachnoe, st. M.A. Bulatova
The locals call this building the “Berlin Bridge”. He was famous for two sections blown up by the Germans, which rose to the sky at the same angle, which gave rise to the myth about the adjustable nature of the structure. Now the old fragments have been dismantled, the bridge performs the usual transport function.
The complex of stylized buildings on the banks of the river, opposite the Kneiphof Island, does not belong to the historical sights of Kaliningrad. All the houses here were built in the current century. Tourists will be interested in this object because it includes several cool hotels, souvenir shops, and originally designed cafes. The entire section of the embankment in the area of the “village” is made a pedestrian zone, an observation deck is arranged in the lighthouse tower. In the neighboring building, river excursions are organized, tickets for river boats are sold.
st. Oktyabrskaya, 2
Before the war it was an area of elite development. Luxurious mansions and villas for wealthy citizens were built in compliance with a single original plan. Despite the unsystematic construction of residential buildings in the Soviet era, the general concept has been preserved in the same way as many rich houses of the original development. Curved streets, an abundance of greenery, picturesque ponds make these quarters a desirable place for walking.
House of Soviets in Kaliningrad
The building, which was supposed to symbolize the inviolability of Soviet power, has not yet been put into operation. It is an example of socialist monumental construction. The idea of the project is inspired by Niemeyer’s work, the house resembles one of the buildings in Brasilia. It is planned to complete the project and place a hotel and office space in the building.
st. Shevchenko, 2, building. 5
A part of Kant Island is reserved for a park that is interesting not so much for sculpture as for a collection of rare trees and shrubs. They began to be planted in the last century on the site of destroyed houses. As a result, a whole collection has developed, which now has more than 1000 samples. Sculptures organically fit into the landscape of the park, but do not make a special impression.
Bronze-cast composition of two bison, life size. The work of August Gaul, a famous sculptor of pre-war Germany. Bronze bulls repeatedly changed their place of installation until they established themselves in the square opposite the city technical university. The sculpture is complemented by a restored fountain, and enterprising merchants have built a cafe nearby called “At the Bulls”.
st. Grekova, 2
The fame of the Kaliningrad Zoo extends far beyond the region, most tourists and guests of the city try to visit it without fail. The entire territory was originally planned not just as a menagerie, but as a cultural and entertainment park area. This is really a beautiful park with comfortable paths, ponds, gazebos and benches for relaxing. Animals are housed in spacious enclosures, and by appearance it is clear that they live well here. In addition, rare trees and shrubs began to be planted in the zoo even in German times, so the zoo is also an arboretum.
Ave. Mira, 26
