At Atlas Obscura, our mission is to inspire wonder and curiosity about the incredible world we all share.

We are a global community of explorers, who have together created a comprehensive database of the world’s most wondrous places and foods —14,758 of them contributed by our community so far, and more every day, from a secret apartment atop the Eiffel Tower to bridges built out of living roots, from a temple shaped like a chicken to an island ruled by cats, from a fruit that tastes like chocolate pudding to a spicy chutney made out of red ants.
