10 Heavily Guarded Places Around The World

Fort Knox

Fort Knox, located in Kentucky, is an Army post and is also home to the US Bullion Depository where the US keeps thousands of tons of gold, and important historical documents. Not only is this place extremely guarded, but it’s also protected by a 22-ton blast door and more security cameras than you could probably find on-line.  
Area 51
Probably the most well known on the list…. Area 51 is a top secret aerospace development and testing site located in Nevada. It may not look that well guarded, but you better believe if you step foot past the warning signs you’ll have people on you in seconds…. even photography is prohibited. The area is said to be installed with hundreds of special senors, which can detect any movements in the area.

The Mormon Church’s Secret Vaults

These secret vaults contain genealogical and historical records for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The vault is excavated 600 feet into the north side of Little Cottonwood Canyon, located in Utah. Not only are they heavily guarded, but are also rumored to be protected by temperature control, as well as motion and heat sensors.

Federal Reserve Bank in New York
Roughly about 25% of the entire world’s gold is said to be stored here…. The vault itself is eighty feet below street level and fifty feet below sea level, and the perimeter of the building is guarded by well-trained marksmen.

Bold Lane Car Park
You won’t have to worry much about car thieves when you leave your car parked here. This parking garage in Derbyshire, England is one of the safest places to park your car in the world. The lot uses a sophisticated web including CCTV cameras, panic buttons, entry doors and bar-coded tickets. If the alarm does go off, the whole place goes into lockdown mode.

Tumen River
This river makes up part of the boundary between Russia and North Korea. Within a mile, you can go from North Korea, through China and end up in Russia, which makes this a good place for those wishing to defect. It’s is highly and well guarded by North Korean soldiers.

Korean Demilitarised Zone
The Korean Demilitarised Zone is a strip of land dividing North and South Korea. It is one of the most heavily guarded borders in the world, stretching 160 miles in length and 2.5 miles in width. Because of the high defense surrounding the border, it has actually now become a nature pressure.

The Greenbrier
Built roughly 720 feet into the hillside under The Greenbrier’s West Virginia Wing, the bunker is an astonishing 112,544 square feet in size. Underneath lies the real secret…. a 25-ton nuclear blast door, with tunnels behind which create a nuclear bunker that is filled with supplies for members of the U.S. Congress to weather out a nuclear attack.

Haven Co
Haven Co is a 120-by-50-foot anti-aircraft platform seven miles off the British coast and 60 feet above the water in the North Sea. It was a self-contained, hypersecure data fortress, and the only people ever allowed in were authorized personnel, investors, and members of Britain’s royal family. It was apparently closed down in 2008, and the secret is to why is kept secure.

Cheyenne Mountain
The Cheyenne Mountain complex was, at one point, the command center for the North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Space Command missions. It’s so well guarded that the tunnel is protected by solid granite and reinforced steel. However, NORAD has since moved its operations to another location.


  1. Two corrections. NORAD is reactivating Cheyenne Mountain. And there is ample evidence to support the theory that the vaults at the New York Federal Reserve no longer contain the volume of gold claimed to be there, with nations like Germany unable to recover their bullion supposedly stored there. Good reason for tight security, to keep that secret from getting out!
