Even the most paradisiacal corners of the world - an exotic island annually attracts thousands of seeking a perfect holiday on the beach tourists can sometimes hit not so much the level of comfort as rife with terrible details of history. But the truly terrible place - it is uninhabited, forgotten by all the island, which became a place once so terrible tragedies that even the most desperate travelers to this day prefer to avoid them.
1.Ilha de Queimada Grande, Snake Island
Located on the coast of the Brazilian island of Ilha de Queimada Grande could be an exotic haven for tired travelers from the winter cold, pleasing guests hot sunshine and beaches. However, locals are not in vain called Snake Island. It is home to the most dangerous types of poisonous snakes kopegolovyh, for example, Golden Lancehead, a poison which causes rapid death of tissue.
The island is so dangerous that the Brazilian authorities have completely banned his visit.
However, tourists are not eager to violate the prohibition - according to statistics, the number of snakes on the island ranges from one to five poisonous animals per square meter, so the likelihood of death is high.
The history of the island, located in the lagoon of Venice, began in the heyday of the Roman Empire; Roman rulers made the island a place of exile plague patients. Several thousand people brought to the island, were left to die; Poveglia turned into a huge mass grave.
Several centuries later abandoned the island once again became the scene of the tragedy: in the era of the bubonic plague, wildfire spreading through Europe, went back to Poveglia plague patients - this time everyone who had even the slightest signs of illness. When the Romans left their patients die slowly from lack of medicine, in the Middle Ages customs were even more brutal - and the living, and the dead were thrown into huge pits and burned alive. Presumably, died on the island of about 160,000 people - the charred bones are still sometimes found on the coast Poveglia.
In 1922, the island was built a hospital for the mentally ill - as in the classic horror film, on a secluded island atmosphere reigned once again in pain and cruelty; the infamous hospital fell not only truly mentally ill, but sometimes completely normal people. Hospital patients have been subjected to frightful experiments - up to the lobotomy, producing the most primitive tools. According to legend, in the night in the hospital heard moans and cries of ghosts once people died from the plague.
In the middle of the twentieth century, some inhabitants of Italy had tried to move to the island; However, a day later, frightened by his sinister atmosphere, hurriedly left the place. On this day Poveglia remains uninhabited.
In 1945 Ramram island located off the coast of Burma, it became a place of another tragedy: the Allied troops landed on a small island, pushed back about a thousand Japanese infantry troops into the swamp. Preferring to walk on bogs of inevitable death, the Japanese tried to escape. Most of them did not manage to come back from a deadly swamps. The reason was not the mosquitoes that carry malaria, poisonous scorpions or not fly, but crocodiles devoured alive by Japanese soldiers. Mass deaths of soldiers in the swamps Ramram was so terrifying that even subsequently entered the Guinness Book of Records.
The chain of small islands in the Izu Japan - a place truly disastrous; Here, because of the volcanic activity, even dangerous air saturated with sulfur. The concentration of sulfur dioxide in the air reaches the Izu Islands of the highest level throughout the world. Toxic air made the island a suitable place for shooting horror films - the locals are forced day and night wear special protective masks, and in the middle of the night howling sirens notifies them that the level of sulfur dioxide becomes deadly.
However, local residents remain in Izu on their own - because of the very small amount of money that is paid to them scientists. The existence in the Izu science has turned into a kind of an experiment designed to find out the consequences of the existence in a protective mask in the poisonous air for a long time.
5.Bolshoe Pacific Garbage Patch
Great Pacific Garbage Patch - an absolutely unique phenomenon and therefore even more tragic; It is unimaginable proportions mountain of garbage that has accumulated over a century in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. For a number of years, ocean currents bring water discharged into the trash in the same area; Today the accumulation of debris is almost an island - the size of Texas.
The existence of such garbage "island" - is not the worst. Plastic, as is known, can not be decomposed, but as time breaks up into small pieces - sized plankton. In the upper layers of ocean water six times more plastic than plankton - lightweight plastic floats and floats only a few dozen centimeters from the surface of the water, thereby attracting fish.
Remains of plastic become food for the ocean fish, which, in turn, then gets on the table.
As for the "island" is actually set foot on it, of course, is impossible - risked to land on the surface of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch would instantly buried under a mountain of debris, falls to the legs and go to sleep on top of the victim.
Fiji Island, today attracts thousands of eager tourists relaxing on the beach every year, was once a much less innocent place. Fiji has a terrible history of cannibalism, infanticide, perverted torture. The missionary, who turned out in Fiji in the forties of the 19th century, and later describes his experience: "October 31, 1839, Thursday. This morning we saw a shocking idea. 20 dead bodies of men, women and children were taken to Reba as a gift from the Tanoa. They ought to cook and eat ... The children had fun mocking the corpse of a little girl. A crowd of men and women butchered corpses of gray-haired old man and a young woman. Human remains floated down the river. "
Along with cannibalism missionary describes the most severe cases of infanticide: "About 30 children were living in the vzdety yards as the flags of victory. Movement of boats that sail soon killed helpless children and choked their desperate cries ».
