The ancient fortress of Sigiriya is among the most beautiful places on Earth that is definitely worth seeing at least once in a lifetime. It is both an ancient fortress and a former palace. Also called the Lion’s Rock, as it stands on top of a gigantic rock of 200 meters high, this amazing place is located in Matale District of Sri Lanka, surrounded by an extensive network of gardens, water tanks and other structures.
Sami Seida, Seyda or Seid (Finnish language Seita) are sacred to the north-European people places, in particular, the Saami or Sami (Lapps). It might be a very special place in the mountains, tundra, taiga, sometimes a conspicuous stone, stump, lake, other natural formation. The concept of Seyda also includes artifacts – structures made of stones.
There are certain natural occurrences in the world that leave us all scratching our heads. One such natural wonder is Kummakivi, a geological formation found in the dense forests of Finland. The mystifying sight is that of a giant rock performing an unbelievable balancing act on a seemingly smooth, curved mound. There is still no scientific explanation for how the rock, whose given name translates as “strange rock” in Finnish, has wound up in such a perplexing position, but doesn’t it look unusual?
The Wave Rock derives its name by its form, which looks like a giant ocean wave ready to break everything on its way.
This unusual stone formation is located in the Wrangell-Petersburg Census Area, Alaska.
