As you all might know The Golden Scope’s philosophy is “exploring the strange fascinating and wonderful”, so to follow our motto we decided to come up with an article that describes the most beautiful and unknown places of our planet.
This way we would explore wonderful and fascinating destinations that will surely capture your interest.
From unknown restaurants hidden in the heart of a cave, to perfectly preserved and functioning ancient medieval towns, get ready to read all about the secret places that most travellers do not know about.

From this, we chose the title “Places most travellers don’t know about”.
