Even in a free country with all the freedoms an ordinary citizen can hope to have, there are places that are for some reason off-limits to ordinary public.

These places are highly secured and can get you in real trouble if you ever decide to storm in. Take a look at the 10 places that are off-limits to ordinary public:

Places That Are Off-Limits To Ordinary Public

10Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway

In number 10 position of places that are off-limits to ordinary public is the Svalbard Global Seed Vault.

It’s a secure seed bank located in the remote Norwegian island of Spitsbergen.

Conservationist Cary Fowler and the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) together built this bank to preserve seeds on occasion of a global crisis.

It all began in 1984 when frozen seeds were being stored in an abandoned coal mine. Over the year there accumulated 300 different species of seed in the place.

Construction of the vault was funded by the Norwegian government. Now it is managed by the joint efforts of Norwegian government, the Nordic Genetic Resource Center (NordGen) and the Global Crop Diversity Trust (GCDT).
