FORT KNOX!

Lets start with the bigwigs- USA! The US government has a lot of gold reserves that it keeps secured in a place called the Fort Knox Army Installation in Kentucky. Supposedly, it has Gold Vault of 22-ton blast-proof door, granite walls, and bombproof roof. Also, this US Army post is guarded by 30,000 soldiers and flotilla of attack helicopters. That's a looot of security and a hell lot of Gold for sure!



SVALBARD SEED VAULT!

The world is changing rapidly and a lot of organisms are succumbing under the pressure of this change. To ensure that there is always food security for the world, there is a seed bank in the coldest place in the world - above the Arctic Circle between Norway and the North Pole. It preserves the largest collection of seeds to be used in case of an apocalyptic event or global catastrophe. Countries which have lent seeds are also not allowed to visit it. It is very much guarded.

THE VATICAN ARCHIVES!

Every major institution has secrets, but some just have too many of them. The Vatican has a secret archive filled with tons of books and journals. Called the Archivum Secretum Apostolicum Vaticanum, this library can only be accessed by distinguished and master scholars. It is said that the authorities fool us by saying that it contains letters of alien contacts, but in reality holds private letters and documents of people like Abraham Lincoln, historical records about the popes of the past four centuries.



PINE GAP FACILITY!

National security is of utmost importance in today's world. USA has built itself a surveillance base in what is the Australian Earth station. This place is approximately 18 km(11 mi) south-west of the town of Alice Springs, Northern Territory in the center of Australia. This station is used for multiple security checks one of them is providing information or warnings of ballistic missile launches!

DISNEY CLUB!

Whoever said Disneyworld was for kids was lying to you. This is certainly one of the most unique places to be at and to be honest, very rarely can you get entry into the coveted Disney Club! It opened in May 1967 for Disney corporates and now is opened only for the world’s highest elites like the US members, actors, and other industry captains. Well now that you know this, all you need is a thousand something million bucks and you will be allowed in here (hopefully!)
