    # 6 Catacombs of France
    Beneath Paris, there are ancient, centuries old tunnels that are filled with millions of dead bodies. In the 13th century, Paris was mainly a limestone mining town which led to it becoming the thriving and cultural mecca it is today. In the 1700s, Paris became over saturated with the dead. Enough people had lived and died in the city that the largest cemetery in the city reeked of rotting flesh. Sometimes, corpses would even become exposed when heavy winds eroded the topsoil of their burial grounds. The solution to all these dead bodies? Storing them all in the hundreds of year old limestone quarries beneath the city. Now, the remains of more than 6 million people lie in what is now known as the Catacombs of Paris. A small portion of this Empire of the Dead can be explored by tourists, but the majority of the tunnels are illegal to visit.

    # 5 Wieliczka Salt Mine
    A huge deposit of rock salt beneath Wieliczka in Poland has been mined for 800 years. Although it was just meant to be a simple mine for all these years, the workers in the quarry did much more than just excavate salt. For hundreds of years miners left behind a legacy. They carved statues, carved religious art into the walls, and even built a cathedral completely made of salt. The salt mine was never open to tourists until much recently - and even though the current guided tour covers 2 and a half miles, the majority of the mines is closed off to the public.

    # 4 Derinkuyu Underground City
    Derinkuyu Underground City is one of the first underground dwellings discovered in Turkey which is rich with subterranean shelters. These underground cities were used by citizens when they were under attack and needed to find refuge or protection. The caverns have multiple ventilation shaft that doubled as a well that provided air for the people inside the cave and water for both the underground dwellers and people above ground. The Derinkuyu complex has amenities like places for education, prayer, storage and even stables. There are even miles long tunnels that connect the Derinkuyu complex with other underground cities found around Turkey.

    # 3 Cappadocian Underground City
    Nevsehir is a city in the Cappadocia region of Turkey that is built around a castle on top of a hill. In 2014, the team behind a Housing Project in the city was busy razing low-income housing that surround the castle when they uncovered a the entrances to a bunch of strange caves. The caves lead to long winding tunnels that never seemed to end. What they found was incredible: an entire underground city beneath Nevsehir. The Cappadocian Underground City goes down at least 371 feet below ground and it is estimated to be nearly 5 million square feet big and enough space to comfortably house 20,000 people. This makes it the biggest underground dwelling in the whole world, trumping previous discoveries of underground cities by a landslide. The whole cave city is at least a few centuries old and is full of antiques and pieces of archaeology that have yet to be found. It was once believed that these caverns were used as temporary refuge when the city was being attacked, but new research may suggest that people actually lived in these caves permanently.

    # 2 Milk Grotto Chapel
    Nearby the Nativity Square in Bethlehem is the Milk Grotto Chapel. It is a chapel built into a natural rock formation and is part man-made construction and partly underground cavern. According to many Christian and Muslim traditions, this is the spot where the Holy Family hid from prosecution and where Mary nursed baby Jesus. Since its discovery, couples have come to this underground chapel to take powder made from the rock inside the cave. Why? They believe that Virgin Mary blessed the limestone in the area and turned it into soft white, calcium rich mineral. They believe consuming part of the rock where Mary nursed Jesus will help them conceive a healthy baby.

    # 1 Ancient Art Sanctuary
    A giant trove of Paleolithic era cave art was found in Spain. Most cave art isn’t as perilous to get to as this cave that’s more than 1,000 feet underground. The cave drawings found in the Atxurra cave is one of the biggest finds ever. There are at least 70 drawings in the Atxurra and they are more detailed and varied than any other collection of cave drawings found. Among the 70 plus etchings into the wall are drawings of horses, buffalo, goats, and deer that date back 12,500 - 14,500 years. Experts say that because of the sheer amount of drawings found, this cave could have served as a sanctuary or meeting ground for the Paleolithic humans.

      "Ancient blacks"? You mean Ancient African's, right? Or are you confusing them with the Persians (they were located in the middle east btw)?

    IT DRIVES ME CRAZY WHEN THEY ACT LIKE THIS IS SUCH A MYSTERY. THE ISSUE
    IS THESE PEOPLE HAVE NEVER DONE ANY LARGE SCALE WORK. I WAS FOREMAN OF A
    RETAINING WALL CREW IN MEDFORD OREGON IN 97. WE BUILT THAT HUGE
    RETAINING WALL ON TOP OF ONE OF THE LARGEST HILLS IN THE CITY. IT WAS
    FOR THAT OLD FOLKS HOME. THE WALL IS MASSIVE AND HUGE! WE BUILT THAT
    WITH 9 GUYS IN THREE MONTHS WORKING A HALF DAY ON SATURDAY AND TAKING
    ONLY SUNDAYS OFF.

    THE WALL TAKES 5 MINUTES TO WALK FROM ONE END TO ANOTHER. EACH BLOCK
    WEIGHED 85 POUNDS. THIS PLACE REPRESENT GENERATION AFTER GENERATION OF
    WORK. ITS SMART! IT COULD PROTECT YOUR LABORS AND FAMILIES MAYBE ITS
    ALSO COOL IN THE SUMMER. ITS NOT A MYSTERY. ITS CALLED COMMON SENSE AND
    GENERATION AFTER GENERATION WORKING. EACH FAMILY PROBABLY ADDED A ROOM.
    THEY USED WHAT MATERIALS WERE AROUND THEM. iTS NOTHING MORE THAN HUMAN
    INGENUITY. NOT HIDING FROM ALIENS. HOW INCREDIBLY STUPID.

    Try to use google translate to get something close to proper pronounciation of location names in Polish. Just remember to use "read" option on te side that is set to actual Polish language, because the result may vary depending on what language the window is set to.

    My imagination:

    Talltanic: "Deep underground, miners were looking for minerals when they came across a dead man. They had no idea who the man was, and took the body to scientists for help. The men did tests on the body and came to the conclusion that the man was none other than..."

    the salt mines in Poland are beautiful and people get married in the chapel, there are underground lakes that people make wishes in and the air is so pure due to the high salt content. I do recommend visiting its long but worth it.

    Wow there are some cruel people on here. I liked the video..These videos are not meant to be a college class or anything. Just ideas of things for us to maybe go and read further about things out in the world that we have not seen or come across previously. There are several places I am going to read about. And so what if not every name is not pronounced correctly, I doubt I could pronounce them all. Chill.

      Can you get outside and not watch YouTube for a while. Are you unable to make a sophisticated and constructive comment; all you had to say was: " I'm sure you could get more subscribers by editing the host voice. Just a suggestion". Could it be that you feel no one will listen to you if your not making over the top comments. Seriously is this all you have to do; all that is left of your life. Everywhere you go and everything you do gives you a label. You need to watch what garbage-like language spills out of your filthy head and mouth.

    • Rick Taylor
      Rick Taylor Year ago

      Forgive me if I'm incorrectly assuming that you're correcting the narrator in his use of BCE (which is an abbreviation for "before common era"), believing that he meant (or should've said) BC (which is an abbreviation of the English phrase "before Christ"). AD, however, doesn't mean "after death," but is an abbreviation of the Medieval Latin phrase (which predates the English "before Christ") anno Domini and translates into "in the year of the Lord." All that being said, BCE & CE ("common era") are synonymous with BC & AD, respectively. Again, if I misinterpreted the meaning of your comment, my intent was not meant to be insulting or condescending. Have a good day.

      Limestone is calcium carbonate. That is not very different than today's calcium supplements prescribed to many women who may be calcium deficient. Pregnancy drains a woman's body of calcium and this would replenish that mineral.
