Fictional Locations: 12 Made-Up Destinations We Wish We Could Visit

Thanks to various forms of fiction, popular culture is rife with different fictional locations from Hogwarts to the Mushroom Kingdom.

These fictional locations range from the hidden country of Wakanda to that place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away where we met the Skywalkers.

Overview: Fictional Locations

Unfortunately, none are real. Some of them are almost inhospitable. Others are a paradise. Most of them fall somewhere in the middle.

These places exist in our imagination as much as they do in our favorite stories and works of fiction. They’re every bit as real as real life, except for the not existing part.

But curling up with a good book or watching a good film allow people to travel through space and time. It even allows us to step outside of reality. At least, mentally.

But have you ever wondered what it might be like to actually walk around in some of the amazing locations that you’ve read about?

Downsides of Visiting Fictional Locations

Perhaps you’ve even weighed up some of the pros and cons of actually visiting these sites.

For example, as cool as it might be to visit the Shire in Middle Earth, it would suck to be captured by orcs and roasted alive for their dinner. And it would really not do to get lost in an enchanted forest, of which there are several from myriad movies and books. Or maybe you’d like to spend a long weekend in one of many fictional cities and towns, such as Gotham City or Derry.

No harm so long as you don’t run afoul of the Joker or Stephen King’s It.

Although, perhaps you could avoid the worst if you take a decent tour guide. Maybe even your favorite in-world character. Batman’s not typically busy during the day, right?

Today, we’re aiming to dodge a few of those pit falls. We put together the best possible travel itinerary for our favorite fictional locations across movies, novels, and more.

If only they were real. Sit back and buckle up. It’s time to go traveling.

12 Fictional Locations We Wish We Could Visit

1) Oxford (His Dark Materials)

Fictional Locations - Oxford - His Dark Materials

We’ve always loved Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, but the recent adaptation along with his new Book of Dust tie-ins have rekindled our love for Pullman’s worlds and world building.

In it, he creates a sort of steampunk take on Victorian England while depicting a version of the city of Oxford, England, that’s similar to ours and yet subtly different.

One of the downsides of going to Pullman’s Oxford is that they don’t have the same level of technology, but they do have blimps and armored bears. And of course, daemons.

In Pullman’s world, daemons are essentially visible representations of the other half of our souls. They take the form of animals, and we can talk to them and ask them for advice. Although, we also can’t stray too far from them.

Be warned, though, that even in a setting as civilized as Jordan College in Oxford, the long arm of the church can still be felt.

Be sure not to say anything against them or you risk running up against the wrath of the magisterium – and if they can get away with Bolvangar, they can get away with anything.

2) Pallet Town (Pokemon)

Fictional Locations - Pallet Town - Pokemon

We want to be the very best, like no one ever was.

That’s why we’d like to travel to Pallet Town in the Pokemon universe. We could stop by Professor Oak’s laboratory and learn whatever he’ll teach us about catching and training Pokemon. With a bit of luck, he’ll even give us a starter Pokemon to help us to get started.

Sure, it’s not the most spacious city if you’re going off game screens alone, but we’d love to imagine a sprawling town full of delightful Pokemon hi-jinks.

Plus, we figure once we’re there, what would be the harm in exploring the rest of the Pokemon universe? After all, we do have to catch them all.

3) Springfield (The Simpsons)

Springfield - The Simpsons

Springfield is the home of the Simpson family, as well as their ensemble cast of friends and neighbors.

This one would be a great place to visit because you’d get to keep all of your home comforts (like electricity and the internet) while still experiencing a little slice of cultural history.

And think of the people you’d meet!

For us, we’d probably try to catch one of Krusty’s shows or pay tribute at Bleeding Gums Murphy’s grave before going for a drink or two at Moe’s Tavern.

And perhaps the following day you can pay a visit to Shelbyville – although it may be best not to let on while you’re spending time in Springfield. Maybe when we’re in the area we could finally learn what state it’s in.

4) Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory

Fictional Locations - Chocolate Factory - Willy Wonka

Even if you’re vegan and you can’t sample the milk chocolate or any of the sweets containing gelatin, you’d still be crazy to pass this one up.

Part of the reason for that is that Wonka’s chocolate factory is magical even if you don’t eat any of the candy. We’d settle for just taking a ride in his great glass elevator.

But of course, it’s the chocolate that’s the main attraction here and during your trip you’ll be able to tuck into such delectable treats as Wonka’s Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight, Swudge, Everlasting Gobstoppers, Fizzy Lifting Drinks, Lickable Wallpaper and the rare (but recently revealed in an unpublished chapter) Vanilla Fudge Mountain.

You can even float down the Chocolate River, although we’d warn you against trying the Chewing Gum Meal in case you end up like Violet Beauregarde.

Whether it’s the original film, the remake, or the novel on which it was all based, we like to imagine what the world of pure imagination would be like to visit.

5) Wonderland (Alice in Wonderland)

Fictional Locations - Wonderland - Alice in Wonderland

Introduced to us by Lewis Carroll in his phenomenal Alice in Wonderland books, this fictional location is the land where one pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small.

There’s no telling what might happen when you go down the rabbit hole, but perhaps it’s just the thing you need to start seeing the world from a different perspective.

If you’re new to the area or if you’re trying to keep a low profile, be sure not to interfere with the Queen of Hearts and her retinue or to eat or drink anything suspicious.

Oh, and don’t be alarmed if you meet Mad Hatters, Cheshire Cats, and other curious creatures during your journey.

This location gives you the charm of Disney but with so much more devilishly good danger and intrigue, regardless of which version(s) you choose to visit–book or movie.

6) The Island of Sodor (Thomas the Tank Engine)

Fictional Locations - Island of Sodor - Thomas the Tank Engine

Home to the Fat Controller, Thomas and his friends, the Island of Sodor has a thriving local tourism scene and a cute (if old-fashioned) way of life that’s sure to make you feel nostalgic for the good old days.

The transport links here are fantastic, and there’s the added bonus that you’ll get to take a ride in a talking train.

The talking train population on the Island of Sodor has gone through something of a boom in recent years, and if you can remember everyone’s name then you’ve got a better memory than we do.

Just a few of the friendly faces that you can expect to see include Bert, Henry, Edward, Emily, Mike, Gordon, Thomas, Toby, Annie and Clarabel.

7) The Land of Take-What-You-Want (Faraway Tree)

Fictional Locations - Land of Take-What-You-Want - Faraway Tree

Introduced in The Enchanted Wood, the first novel in Enid Blyton’s stunning Faraway Tree series of children’s books, the Land of Take-What-You-Want is at the top of the Faraway Tree.

The tree itself is worth a visit, because it’s home to a range of friendly inhabitants including Moon-Face, Silky the Fairy and the Saucepan Man.

You can even slide down the inside of the tree to get down to the bottom in a hurry.

This is all pretty cool in itself, but it’s also only the beginning. Right at the top of the Faraway Tree, its branches reach into the clouds and allow the kids in the books to climb through into a different new land.

Some of them are unpleasant, such as the Rocking Land, where you can’t take one step forward without taking ten steps back.

As for us, we’d quite like to visit the Land of Do-As-You-Please, but we’d like to visit the Land of Take-What-You-Want even more. But perhaps that’s just because we’re greedy.

8) Thugz Mansion (Tupac)

Thugz Mansion - Tupac

This one might be a bit of a stretch as a fictional location. Although strangely enough, depending on your religious beliefs, it’s the location on this list most likely to be real.

Tupac’s Thugz Mansion is essentially an alternative version of heaven which sounds way more fun.

Notable residents include Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson and Billie Holiday, and we hear that their house band is phenomenal. We imagine Tupac is up there now, too. And while it may be a stretch, maybe even The Notorious B.I.G.

If you can catch a live show, you’re in for a treat that you’ll remember forever. Although we expect it’s pretty difficult to get there. The price of admission alone is deathly expensive.

9) Discworld (Terry Pratchett)

Fictional Locations - Discworld

Visiting Pratchett’s Discworld might be a bit of a risk, but we’ll take it as it appears in the later books when there’s a little more stability and such modern conveniences. For example, the Disc’s first train and the clacks towers for sending messages at long distances.

Okay, there might be problems with poverty and some areas, such as The Shades in Ankh Morpork. They’re effectively out of bounds. But there’s still plenty to see.

For example, there are the Pyramids in Ephebe, Unseen University in Ankh Morpork and the vast plains of Sto Lat.

Immortality even beckons if you’re lucky/unlucky enough to be turned into a vampire. Just be sure to become a member of the temperance movement and to wear a black ribbon to show that you only drink animal blood.

The Disc itself is also interesting, especially if you happen to be a flat Earther. That’s because the Disc is flat and suspended on the back of four elephants, who themselves are stood on the back of a giant space turtle called the Great A’Tuin.

If you head to the rim, you might even be able to head off on a mission into outer space over the edge of the giant water fall named Rimfall.

10) The TARDIS (Doctor Who)

The Tardis - Doctor Who

Okay, perhaps this one is cheating a bit.

It’s true that we’ve love to see the inside of the TARDIS so it could blow our minds with its relative time dilation. You could get lost in there, depending on how big it really is, which somewhat depends on which Doctor is piloting it. But that’s not the only reason.

But if we could visit the TARDIS, we could commandeer it to take us anywhere we wanted at any point in history, whether it’s a fictional location or a real location. All with the click of a few buttons.

What’s really great is that you can park it and know it’s not going anywhere. Even in the worst of conditions like lava or space, its passengers are completely safe. That’s partly why we think this one gets a pass, because we’d be willing to stick to the inside of the police box walls.

Of course, this is all assuming that we’d be able to get The Doctor to agree to take us.

11) Bedrock (The Flintstones)

Fictional Locations - Bedrock - Flintstones

We were thinking about including Jurassic Park on this list so that we could go and see some dinosaurs. But the more we thought about it, the more a day in the park started to seem like a really bad idea.

Bedrock makes for a good alternative, because you get to see dinosaurs up close and personal without risking being torn limb from limb.

First introduced in 1960, Bedrock is the prehistoric town in which The Flintstones is set. If you want to see the city in style, you can hire a car. Although you’ll have to power it with your feet. Or just ask one of the locals to show you around.

We’re sure if you offer Barney Rubble a beer or two, he’ll be more than happy to take on the job.

Bedrock is a great choice if you’ve always wondered what a dinosaur steak tastes like or if you want to take a break away from technology. We just hope you don’t have nomophobia, because there aren’t any electrical outlets in Bedrock.

12) Milliways: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)

Fictional Locations - Milliways The Restaurant at the End of the Universe - Hitchhiker

Located in Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series, this five-star restaurant is located exactly where it sounds – right at the end of the universe, where time and matter no longer exists.

Don’t worry too much about reserving a seat or paying your bill, because you can make a reservation after you’ve visited when you return to your own time. You can also pay the bill by opening a bank account and putting a penny in there, because compound interest will take care of the rest for you.

Of course, one downside of visiting Milliways, as the restaurant is officially known, is that you’ll need a TARDIS or a ship with an infinite improbability drive to get there.

The good news is that if you do make it, they do a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster that’s to die for.

Conclusion: Fictional Locations

This list of locations that we wish we could visit is far from complete, but we think it’s a pretty good start.

With that said, with so many fictional worlds and fictional locations out there for us to explore from books, movies and TV shows to legends, mythos and folklore, there was no way that we could ever hope to cover everything.

We certainly missed Atlantis, Gravity Falls, Twin Peaks, all of Lord of the Rings (despite mentioning the Shire in passing), and countless other locales from your favorite movie, TV show, comic book, game, or work of literature.

Then there’s the fact that there are plenty of fictional locations that would be interesting to visit, but only if you knew that you couldn’t die. The continent of Westeros would be fascinating to explore, for example. However, it and Essos are not exactly the safest place to go for a holiday.

At the very least, you wouldn’t want to take the kids.

Come to think of it, they wouldn’t even be entirely safe in Narnia with all the fighting and so forth.

Plus, there are multiple planet, city, and even city-planet options in Star Wars. And we wouldn’t mind a castle or two from King Arthur myths or any number of fairy tale kingdoms, castle or not.

Where To Next?

By now, you’ve read our list of the 12 fictional locations that we wish we could visit, and so now it’s your turn.

Whether you want to spend Christmas playing a game of Quidditch at Hogwarts with Harry Potter or whether you want to rub shoulders with the locals in the lost country/city of El Dorado, we want to know. Narnia, anyone?

Admit it. As a kid, you totally tried pushing on the back of your parents’ wardrobe to see if you could reach Narnia. We’ve all dreamed of winning the golden ticket to visit Mr Wonka’s chocolate factory, or fantasized about receiving a letter inviting us to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Children’s fiction is replete with places of the imagination, which children dream about visiting. Here, we’ve put together a list of nine favourites, including notes on where they’re supposed to be located… just in case you want to go looking.


Peter Pan

JM Barrie’s Peter Pan stories are the oldest on this list. The character first appeared in a play in 1904, and a novel in 1911, though is perhaps most famous today from the 1953 Disney film and its screen successors (and his London statue). The stories take us to various locations, but the best known is Neverland – the island home of Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, Pan and other characters. Inhabitants of the island have various magical powers and many are immortal. It’s an enchanted realm that would delight any child.

Barrie left the whereabouts of Neverland deliberately vague. It is more of a concept than a place, a land we each find, and flesh out, in our own imaginations. However, film fans have suggested that an atoll off the coast of Belize fits all the visual clues, and has similar wildlife to the novel. Probably not fairies, though.


From the Boy Who Never Grew Up to the Boy Who Lived. Harry Potter needs no introduction, and nor does the wizarding school at which he spent seven eventful years. Some pretty grim events happened at Hogwarts during that time, but none of this would deter any child from taking a ride on the Hogwarts Express and enrolling in their own classes at the school, given half a chance. The location of Hogwarts is reasonably well established if you study the clues in the books and films. We know right off the bat that it must be a lengthy journey north of London, because the Hogwarts Express is seen pulling out of King’s Cross, which serves destinations in that direction. The mountainous scenery suggests a location somewhere in the Highlands of Scotland. But the clincher comes in the third book and film, when Sirius Black is spotted in the real location of Dufftown, which is then described as not far from Hogwarts. We can guess, then, that the wizarding school is half way between Inverness and Aberdeen. Perhaps less tricky to visit for most muggles is the recreation of Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross station, where you can pretend to burst through a brick wall with your Hogwarts Express luggage.

It’s now over 70 years since the first of CS Lewis’s Narnia tales was published. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe remains the best known of the novels. This, I think, is partly down to the third object in the title. Finding a magical realm at the back of a wardrobe is such a delicious conceit, and something any child playing hide and seek can relate to. Once through the wardrobe, the four children of the tale encounter plenty of trouble, mostly due to the evil white witch who has cast a freezing spell over the realm. Yet the kids also have plenty of high adventure and even grow up to become kings and queens themselves. The final twist where they return home to find they are children once again, and no time has passed just seals the magic.

The Faraway Tree

As a child, the true magic of Enid Blyton’s enchanted tree was that it felt so discoverable. You might stumble across it anywhere. Every time I was taken to a wood or forest, I would look for the thickest trunk, peer into the canopy in search of fairy folk, and listen out for the leaves, singing wish-ah, wish-ah. I never found it, but that didn’t stop me pretending.

The Faraway Tree had everything that adventurous children still crave. Its boughs were populated with eccentric characters, like the Saucepan Man, Moon Face and Dame Washalot, whose dirty laundry water would cascade down the tree at unpredictable intervals. At the top, a new magical land awaited discovery with each climb. And rather than work their way down carefully, characters would speed along the slippery slip – an enormous helter skelter hidden within the trunk. Of all the places in this list, it’s the one I’d most like to visit as an adult. Well, apart from Hogwarts, perhaps.


Icy and imperilled it might be, but there are an awful lot of children who’d give anything to live in Arendelle. The city of Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen has a fairytale aesthetic of turrets and towers, but is set in a Nordic fjord to add natural beauty. Arendelle does not exist, but it is heavily sketched from reality. Many clues in the films suggest it’s somewhere in Norway. Arendelle almost shares its name with Arendal in southern Norway, while many of its buildings are styled after those of Bergen. The biggest clue of all comes in Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, where we see a giant cookie shaped like the Scandi nation.

Adventure Bay

The primary setting of PAW Patrol is the ideal destination for kids who are after a bit of excitement. As its name suggests, Adventure Bay is the kind of place where robots run amok, dinosaurs go on the rampage, and aliens search for lost toys (though just as often the plot revolves around the hapless mayor chasing her pet chicken). The Bay is surrounded by every type of terrain your kids could want to explore, from ice-capped mountains to steamy jungles, to undersea kingdoms. All of which makes Adventure Bay tricky to pinpoint. It seems to be North American – probably in Canada, which is where the programme is made.

Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory

Kids would dream of going to Willy Wonka

What child wouldn’t want to visit Roald Dahl’s famous chocolate factory? Yes, OK, 80% of the children in the novel meet with potentially life-altering accidents, but Mr Wonka puts things right in the end, doesn’t he?

Just think of the adventures. A room where everything is edible; an everlasting gobstopper; a chocolate river; a TV ray that can shrink anything down; and a great glass elevator that can fly to space – what a wonderful complex for children to explore. You’d probably want to turf out the sanctimonious oompa loompas, though.

Jurassic World

Every child I’ve ever met has had some kind of obsession with dinosaurs. It’s only natural, then, that many would want to visit Jurassic World if they could – despite the peril and carnage. The successor to John Hammond’s prehistoric theme park is a chance to see numerous extinct giants recalled to life, including genetically modified super-creatures that would never have walked the earth. Although the first attempt at opening a dinosaur attraction, Jurassic Park, went awry before it even opened to the public, the much larger Jurassic World has enjoyed many years of trouble-free operation and is perfectly safe for families to enjoy (right up to the point where the 2015 film kicks in). Jurassic World is set on the same fictional island as Jurassic Park – Isla Nublar, off the coast of Costa Rica.

Bikini Bottom

And finally, if nautical nonsense is something you wish, then we have to pay a visit to Bikini Bottom. This, of course, is the home of the world’s most famous anthropomorphic invertebrate: SpongeBob SquarePants. His undersea city teems with things to do, from a visit to the Krusty Krab restaurant to various museums, to the popular Glove World theme park. As its name suggests, Bikini Bottom is located beneath the sea near Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean.


Written By

Although originally from the Midlands, and trained as a biochemist, Matt has somehow found himself writing about London for a living. He’s a former editor and long-time contributor to and has written several books about the capital. He’s also the father of two preschoolers.

Favorite Fictional Places I’d Love to Visit!

Vividly and Wonderfully Described Fictional Settings

If there is something that we remember the most from our favorite books, are the book settings. Time periods, eras are part of a book’s setting too, but it is mostly the places the characters visit that we end up remembering: strange decorated houses, huge schools, unique stores, magnificent palaces and kingdoms and many more interesting places.

Some authors have the incredible ability to describe places and fantasy worlds in a way that you are mesmerized and have the desire to visit those places too.

“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.” -Anna Quindlen

I really admire authors, not only for having the creativity and imagination to write a book, which I bet is not an easy job; but aside from writing and coming up with such a great story with magic rules and characters, they have the ability to describe places with such accuracy that it doesn’t feel difficult to understand but more as if you’re visiting a familiar place again!

I’ve always said that when we read, we are escaping this reality, at least for a few hours, and immersing in a fictional world with some very adventurous and intriguing people . That’s one of the things I love the most about reading, being able to visualize all of these incredible worlds and places the characters go to.

If I could do anything to escape this Earth for a day and live in these beautiful and incredible fictional worlds, I’d do it, sign me in!

I have asked this question to some of my close friends too and they have always answered that they’d love to escape to their favorite fictional world: ASAP.

A few weeks ago, I posted a poll in my Instagram stories and I asked you guys which posts you would like to see on my blog next, and this was one of the top choices too.

You can check out the last one, “Books I Think Everyone Should Read and Why…” right here! You can follow me over there too, I’m very active lately on stories and posts so I’d love for you to join the fam; ( @thebookssmuggler ), we’re very close to 1.2K book lovers and I couldn’t be more grateful to be part of the bookstagram community

Sadly, I can’t talk about all the fictional worlds I’d love to visit, that’s basically every fantasy book I end up loving and talking about ; but I will mention some specific places that are with no doubt my top favorites; not the world overall but a specific city or place in that fantastic universe.

Today I’m bringing you my top 5 choices and I hope you will like them, and probably add some of these books to your TBR! You won’t regret it!

Of course you may think differently, and have various choices of places you’d love to visit. You can share your choices with me and I’ll share mine with you! Leave your comment down below and let’s chat.

PS: I will leave the link for the Goodreads description of each book if you’re interested to check it out! I’ll be talking about the places not the plots

With nothing more to say let’s get started…

Top 5 Fictional Places I’d Love to Visit!

1. Camp Half-Blood from Percy Jackson and the Olympians

These books are part of the first saga I ever read, that’s why they have such a special place in my heart. And I was (kind of still am ) obsessed with Camp Half-Blood! The description of the camp and all the different places; it made me want to be a demigod just to have a chance to go there

Camp Half-Blood is a Greek demigod training facility, and it’s located on Long Island, New York State. This is described as being the only safe place for half-bloods. The camp consists of 12 cabins (one for each of the twelve Olympians), a dining pavilion, the archery field, an amphitheater, an armory, the Big House and many more fun places in campus.

I always wanted to be there on CHB during the ceremonies where the gods claim their children on the amphitheater and it also sounded so fun and cozy to be with will all of your demigod friends roasting marshmellows in the pavilion during dinner; sounds cool, huh?

The camp is directed by the god Dionysus and Chiron, a centaur who directs the activities. The camp has magical borders which are enforced ensuring that no mosnter c ould get into camp, so it’s an almost safe place to visit!

I really, really enjoyed these books and the characters’ unique personalities. Plus the plots of each book are so incredible and fun to read! I definitely recommend reading the Percy Jackson series, if you are a fan of Greek Mythology and Fiction Books!

Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief Book 1 GOODREADS

2. Velaris from A Court of Mist and Fury

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the ACOTAR saga, for various reasons. But if there’s something I truly love about Sarah J. Mass books are the descriptions and fantasy worlds she creates! (And Azriel haha the only reason that I’m reading the next book!)

Velaris, also called the City of Starlight, is a hidden city on the west side of the Night Court. The walls of this city have not been breached for more than five thousand years and it has remained hidden thanks to Rhysand.

In this book, I fell in love with Velaris. I wanted to be there! It is such a beautiful city and a peaceful place too. It is described as “having a breeze that smells like salt and lemon verbena.”

To the north different kind of mountains surround the city across the river, and a range of sharp peaks cleave the city’s hills from the sea beyond. The city’s buildings are crafted out of white marble, warm sandstone and red stone of the flat-topped mountains. Tell me if you don’t want to visit this place, please. We can’t be friends anymore.

As described in the book, many quarters of Velaris are full of town houses with green copper roofs and white chimneys. in Velaris you can found many shops with delicate tables and chairs scattered outside their cheery fronts, restaurants and nightclubs.

This place is seriously beautiful, I can only visualize it in my mind, but I’d pay anything to see it in real life. I bet it’s gorgeous, and has a Northern Europe feel to it . If you’ve read this books then you probably have this as one of your choices too! It seems like a wonderful place to visit.

A Court of Thorns and Roses Book 1 Goodreads

3. The London Institute from Chain of Gold

At this point, you must already know that my favorite fictional world has to belong to the Shadowhunters Chronicles. I love Cassandra Clare’s descriptions, she’s amazing at them! And one of my most favorite places from her books, that I’d choose to visit, is the London Institute.

Especifically, the Edwardian London era, for Chain of Gold. Not only is the aesthetic of that time period gorgeous and one I truly love; but the descriptions of the Institute, the Library, the halls. I want it

The London Institute is located on Fleet Street in London, England. Through its glamour, the Institute appears to be a regular, abandoned church on the outside. But in the inside, the Institute is as glamorous as a castle.

The ceilings rise up and disappear into the gloom above. There are tapestries hanging from the walls depicting stars, swords, and designs of Shadowhunter’s runes. The Institute is big enough to be maze-like for newcomers.

And according to the descriptions, it’s this Institute that holds the Great Library of Europe which is filled with thousands of books, many of which are either religious or classics. There is also a grand ballroom where the welcome ball was held during the first chapters of the book.

The rooms are large and dimly lit, enduing a warm and homey feel. The dining room is huge and bright, lit by a large gasolier that illuminates the room with a yellowish light. This place couldn’t be described more beautifully and give you that sense of home.

If I could visit any of the Shadowhunter’s Institutes, I’d definitely choose this one! Anyone signs up to go with me? And if you haven’t yet, please give these books a try. You will definitely enjoy them! They’re incredible!

4. Crow Club from Six of Crows

Please, don’t think wrong of me. I’m not saying I want to hang out at a gang place… or am I?

Well, the Crow Club is a gambling house run by my favorite gang of all time, Kaz Brekker and the Dregs in Ketterdam’s pleasure district, the Barrel. So yeah, maybe I’d like to visit

According to the books, it was Kaz’s idea to invite ordinary shopkeepers and legitimate businessmen the chance to buy shares in the Crow Club, that’s why he was able to purchase the building, spruce it up, and get it running.

The Club has a black and crimson facade, a portico with black columns, and an oxidized silver crow with its wings spread above the entrance. The interior of the Club consists of a main hall with card tables and the like and several private gambling parlors, garbed in black and red.

The card tables are circular and draped in crimson cloth decorated with a repeating pattern of black Crows. The walls are coated in black lacquer. The Club, like most gambling halls in the Barrel, is windowless to prevent customers from observing the passage of time, leading them to spend more time there.

I would love to visit this place to 1) meet Inej Ghafa obviously and 2) to be part of the Crow Club’s gang; who wouldn’t want to be part of Kaz Brekker’s plans? Well, ignoring the fact that it is dangerous and crazy to go there, it would be fun and that’s enough haha!

Leigh Bardugo definitely created an amazing world on the dark sides of Ketterdam with distinctive individuals and descriptions of these places. I hope you add Six of Crows to your TBR! Best decision ever!

5. Nino’s Pizzeria from The Raven Cycle

Blue Sargent is one of the main characters in this saga and at the beginning of book one she is working at Nino’s Pizzeria. A pizza place in Henrietta, Virginia.

Here’s where she first met the raven boys, and where they sometimes go to talk about Glendower. According to Blue it has flexible hours and pays well enough.

I chose this place as one of my favorite places to visit, because I can perfectly imagine myself dining with Blue and the rest of the raven boys (Adam, Gansey, Ronan and Noah) while we plot a way to save the world in one of those cozy red booths It is such a nice feeling I get from this place, I had to include it.

PS: who doesn’t love a very good pizza place?

I declare The Raven Cycle as my favorite series of all time, I loved every single second of it and I can’t recommend it enough! Please give them a try if you haven’t yet. What are you waiting for?
