1.  Blue Pond in Biei, Japan


The blue pond in Biei, Hokkaido, appeared as the result of works on a dam built to control erosion processes and protect the nearby areas from mudflows. The unusual bright turquoise color of the water is caused by minerals. For a long time, this natural object remained closed for visitors and only became accessible a few years ago.

2. Tin Mal Mosque, Morocco



The Tin Mal Mosque was built in 1156 to commemorate the founder of the Almohad dynasty, and it is one of 2 Moroccan mosques open to non-Muslims. In 1995, it was included in the UNESCO World Heritage tentative list. The mosque is located in a mountain village only 100 km (62 mi) from Marrakesh.
