The shocking rate of global expansion and technological development makes it difficult to imagine that there is hardly any place in this planet, which remains to be explored. Starting from man-made sites to guarded natural wonders or historic buildings and monuments of the world, a slew of spots across the globe have been explored by tourists.
While it can be a bit of comfort for travel aficionados; sadly, not all of the travel destinations won’t be able to attract tourists any more. Well, these destinations have been destroyed.
Few months back the whole world was shocked when they learned that a fire completely destroyed the Notre Dame cathedral. Watching the fire burning down the cathedral and the spire made people and history buffs shocked and emotional. Here, in this blog, you will get a list of historical places that can’t be visited again.
- Notre Dame Cathedral – Paris, France
It isn’t gone forever and one would be able to visit it in the near future after it gets restored. However, one would miss its previous glory and the iconic spire won’t be a prominent feature of Paris’ skyline.
- Shakespeare’s Globe – London, England
There are different versions of the Globe Theatre built on the River Thames. Even if one exists today, one won’t know the original one. The original one was destroyed by fire and the second one was closed after religious outcry. The new one is only a few hundred meters from the original one.
- Porcelain Tower of Nanjing – Nanjing, China
During the Taiping revolution, this beautiful piece of architecture was destroyed. The reconstructed version raises some hope that it can be visited sometime.
- Jonah’s Tomb – Mosul, Iraq
War related conflict destroyed this historical landmark, which people used to visit till a few years back. Being the oldest mosque, the Jonah’s Tomb was a place where people used to go for pilgrimage. Sadly, it has been destroyed.
- Love Locks Bridge – Paris, France
As a symbol of love, people used to head to Paris in order to put a lock on this bridge. Years of locks proved too heavy for the bridge and it collapsed in 2014.
Well, these breathtaking and incredible historical buildings and monuments might have lost their glory, but once it used to be a pride of these countries.
