Today we will tell about the most unusual and mysterious places of the world’s cities connected with the countries’ culture and traditions.
Sexiest tomb in Paris
Tourists tend not only to visit the graves of Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf and Jim Morrison on the Parisian Pere Lachaise cemetery.
There is no less visited grave of a certain Victor Noir. The young man died a week before his wedding. The inconsolable bride wished to see the tombstone with her lover’s statue, which has a characteristic bulge in his pants. Since then, the Victor Noir tomb has become a pilgrimage place for women. It is believed, that if you rub the genital area of the monument and kiss the statue on the lips, your sex life will improve.

Rain’s Monument in St. Petersburg
Petersburg rain is an unspoken symbol of the city, to it were dedicated songs and poems. And now St. Petersburg rain has its monument!
Bottle Art Museum in Pattaya
It is better not to throw glass bottles at the beach, but to put them in a museum. To do this, a whole complex was opened in Pattaya.
