5 quirky places that will stump you

The world is a strange place! And we humans are no less strange. Here are 5 quirky places we have been to that will leave you speechless, wondering what led to their conception. While it is hard to understand the workings of a human mind, nature is no less bewildering.

Get ready to get your quirk on!


#1 Cappadocia's Love Valley

I cannot get over these phallic shaped rocks in Cappadocia, Turkey. And the most interesting thing about them is that they are natural! What on earth had to happen for these rocks to look like a dick parade?

#2 Sedlec Bone Church, Kutna Hora

Just an hour's drive from Prague, Czech Republic, this is a small medieval gothic church from the outside, but the interiors will make your skin crawl. The church is made up of over 40,000 human skeletons and really makes you wonder why someone would go through the effort of bringing together dead people's skulls and bones for this!

#3 Museum of Broken Relationships, Zagreb

The capital city of Croatia with its old town charm and cafes spilling over the cobbled streets also has one of the quirkiest museums I've seen. A display of memories, stories and relics from those with a broken heart, this is a museum dedicated to failed relationships! Pretty eccentric, eh?

Wow, get over it already!


#4 Museum of Sex, New York

Here's another one - Museum of Sex, New York and its very explicit exhibits is another quirky place in my list. The best thing here was probably the bouncy castle of breasts. Lol. Here's a picture of my husband, jumping of joy. Facial expression - pure ecstasy!

#5 Phra Nang Cave, Krabi

This cave, located on Thailand's Krabi Islands, is actually a phallic shrine! The wooden penises are apparently offerings by the local fishermen to the goddess-spirit, believing it will lead to a better catch. Umm... I am at a loss for words!

  5. I really want to go to Cappadocia, its been on my list for a while. One day I will get there. I went to a church in Portugal made of bones too!! I never made it to Krabi, but that looks like an interesting shrine!!

    1. Cappadocia is interesting as a town, not just the Love Valley but also these underground cities they have, so spooky to imagine people actually had to live there during an attack!

    1. Haha thank you. I don’t know how I stumble upon such places, I don’t really go looking for them 😀

  6. I love these! I’d love to visit the church in Czech Republic, and the rocks in Turkey. I found a really strange museum in Ghent, Belgium – it had a whole floor dedicated to puberty!! 😂 X

  7. There are some very weird and quirky places all over the world that is for sure, theres a few places I’ve come across that have just stumped me and some that really just amazed me. As weird is this sounds the Sedlec Bone Church took my interest on this post because I used to live in Pardubice in Czech but I didn’t know about this place, I think I would have visited out of curiosity haha.

    1. I absolutely loved the Sedlec Bone Church! It was hardly an hour’s train journey from Prague and the town itself was so sleepy and laid back, such a contrast to Prague!
