Every city and town on Earth is unique, but some specimens are so extraordinary that it’s hard to believe they really exist.
Comfia found the weirdest towns on our planet. Some of them are worthy of a long weekend visit.
12. A town where you can’t die
The town of Longyearbyen, Svalbard, is one of the world’s northernmost settlements and a place where you officially cannot die. There is a cemetery in the town, but it hasn’t been used in 70 years.
The reason for this is the frosty climate, which prevents dead bodies from decomposing and makes them an attraction for wild animals. People who are likely to die soon are transported to mainland Norway by plane.
