HIDDEN: Some locations have been blurred out on Google Maps

Well almost anywhere.

There are some places which the web giant seemingly refuses to show you.

Many are military locations which have been blurred out on the viewing platform.

Some are rumoured to be areas where stockpiles of nuclear weapons can be found.

The attempts to hide these mystery sites have naturally only fuelled intrigue.

And it’s not just top secret government buildings which have been shielded from public eyes.

A royal palace, mysterious island and very famous fast food chain have also been hidden.

Here are secret places blurred on Google Maps.

STOCKPILE: More than 20 nuclear weapons are stored at the Dutch Volkel air force base

Mystery Russian site

Located in Siberia with the nearest city Egvekinot, no-one can quite explain why this site has been so clearly hidden.

Siberia, which shares borders with China, Alaska and Kazakhstan, would be the 35th largest country in the world based on its size – 13.1 million sq km.

But there are just three inhabitants per square kilometre.

Some have suggested that this particularly blurred location could be one of a number of alleged closed cities and towns used for nuclear weapons production during the Cold War.

ALIEN BEACON: Some claim this site off Canada is hiding an ET device for space travel

Volker Air Base Netherlands

Former Prime Minister Ruud Lubbers confirmed there are more than 20 US nuclear bombs stored in bunkers of the base.

Namely these are B61 thermonuclear bombs which were part of the US’s Cold War stockpile and said to be four times more powerful that the Hiroshima and Nagasaki weapons.

It is thought the weapons were stored there during the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.

WikiLeaks published a diplomatic cable which admitted the presence of nuclear weapons in the Netherlands. Lubbers told a National Geographic programme the weapons were “an absolutely pointless part of a tradition in military thinking”.

Baker Lake, Nunavut

This location in northern Canada is said by Dr Richard Boylan to be hiding an extra-terrestrial beacon.

It is claimed the purpose of this 30-mile long black rectangular device is to aid with navigation across the galaxy.

Regions with snow are said to be the best spot for these beacons because they exert electromagnetic fields to disrupt the Earth’s grids.

Colonel Sanders, KFC

Yes, when clicking on the view of branches around the world, you’ll notice the KFC founder’s face is blurred.

Google has said that this is because he was a real person and has his identity protected like every other person who appears on the global mapping tool.

KFC has just under 19,000 outlets globally.

MYSTERY: Babylon in Iraq is frequently mentioned in the Bible but doesn’t appear on Google Maps

Babylon, Iraq

This iconic city appears as farmland on Google Maps but it is reported Saddam Hussein spent millions rebuilding the location.

He is said to have inscribed messages into some of the 60 million bricks used in the rebuilding.

Babylon was once described as one of the Seven Wonders of the World and is frequently referenced in the Bible.

North Sentinel Island

This mysterious island has been out of bounds to the world – and Google Maps.

The islanders famously reject any contact with the outsiders, and have been known to attack strangers with bows and arrows.

They have even attacked helicopters.

A three-mile exclusion zone was set up around the island by the Indian government to avoid further conflict.

CENSORED: The blurred Marcoule nuclear site in France was closed 30 years ago

Marcoule nuclear site, France

An explosion at this nuclear facility in 2011 killed one person and injured four.

It is understood the blast occurred in an oven used to melt metallic waste.

The atomic energy site was actually decommissioned in 1984 but still to this day remains mostly censored to the public.

The site is the home of two tritium-producing nuclear reactors.

Huis ten Bosch palace, Netherlands

One of three official residences of the Dutch Royal Family, much of the site is blurred out on Google Maps.

The palace is not open to the public, and as such remains hidden on Google Maps.

Trees and roads can be identified but the actual building is shielded from view.

USA: Some building in Area 51, one of the world’s most secretive places, are shown

Area 51, Nevada Desert

Located in the remote Nevada desert, conspiracy theorists have long claimed Area 51 is a military base where scientists have been reverse engineering alien spaceships.

It is only in recent years that the US government has admitted the existence of a military base at the site.

Such is its secrecy, a massive exclusion site exists around Area 51 which is guarded by armed personnel.

Literally nothing is officially known about the facilities and work at the mysterious site.

But Google Map’s satellite view does a sneak peak at Area 51, allowing people the ability to zoom in on the Groom Lake area and view a large number of buildings and apparent warehouses.

The web giant’s time-lapse satellite also showed a major increase in the size of Area 51 between 1986 and 2016.

It is rumoured that Area 51 is home to a huge underground research facility which is out of reach even to Google.
