Plitvice Lakes National Park

Sopot, Poland
Krzywy Domek - The Crooked House

The Krzywy Domek calls Sopot, Poland--specifically, 53 Bohaterów Monte Cassino St. in lower Sopot--home, and all who visit the Krzywy Domek call it the world's most crooked house. Perhaps fitting, then, that it is predominantly used to conduct business, with most of its rental more...

Cinque Terre, Italy

Cinque Terre. Five villages embedded into 7 miles of serrated cliffs between Levanto and La Spezia on the Italian Riviera. Lonely Planet terms the conglomeration of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore "higgledy-piggledy", but we think this decidedly more...

East Sussex, England
Beachy Head

Siberia, Russia
Lake Baikal - The World's Oldest Lake

Twenty-five million is the number of birthdays it takes to deem a lake the World's Oldest, and Lake Baikal has enough candles on its cake to claim the honors. Located in the south of Russia's Siberia region, Baikal also ranks as the most voluminous freshwater lake in the more...
