It turns out that one of the most famous and mysterious landmarks in the world is actually not as impressive as we think. Most of the tourists who visited the building (and in 2014 alone more than 1.3 million people were bedded) remain, to put it mildly, disappointed.

Gilded temple

The Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan, considered one of the most beautiful in the world, also doesn't impress tourists. Many are disappointed due to the fact that only two of its levels are covered with gilding, while the rest are painted with ordinary paint.

Blue Mosque

The main mosque of Turkey was built in the 17th century by order of Sultan Ahmed I. Despite the fact that the Turks consider it one of the most beautiful buildings in their country, many tourists note that the mosque is not much better than other shrines located in Istanbul.

Fisherman's Wharf

The Fisherman's Wharf is well known in the world. Tourists come here to see the sea lions that began to live in this place after the earthquake that struck in 1989. Many argue that apart from sea lions, there is nothing interesting here, well, except that you can still try thick fish soup in a plate of bread or buy souvenirs.

Mermaid

According to eyewitnesses, the one and a half meter statue is actually not very attractive, since some kind of deception is felt in it.

Walk of fame, Hollywood

As for one of the hallmarks of Hollywood - the Walk of Fame, many tourists are literally annoyed by the chaotic arrangement of stars, which makes it almost impossible to find the right star. Also, local cafes and tattoo parlors located right on the alley complicate the search.

Pissing boy statue

The famous Brussels statue is interesting for art critics and inexperienced tourists. Every day, up to 150 people crowd here, who decided that they had to look at this sculpture. In addition to onlookers, there are many pickpockets here, so you need to be on the lookout. The statue, which is only 60 cm high, was erected between 1618 and 1619. However, you don't have to go anywhere, but put a cute pissing boy right at home.
