Visiting these real-world places is like jumping into the pages of a story book, where castles sit on clouds and forests are carpeted with flowers.

Its lakeside views and charming buildings make Hallstatt a picture-perfect town. So perfect, in fact, that China made an extract replica of the village to serve as high-end housing.

6. Lake Reschen: South Tyrol, Italy

This area of South Tyrol was once home to several villages, but the towns were purposefully flooded when a dam was built nearby. The only visible reminder of the drowned cities is a 14th-century bell tower—sort of like Rapunzel meets the Quarter Quell.

8. Seljalandsfoss: Iceland

Seljalandsfoss looks great at any angle, but it’s worth the hike to see the waterfall from the cave behind it. Can someone commission an Airbnb property here please?

St. Basil’s Cathedral is a bright and whimsical sight in the middle of Red Square, thanks to candy-colored domes and swirling patterns.
