14. Sala Silvermine, Sweden
About Sala Silvermine Underground suite – A single suite, 155m underground
You can sleep 155 metres underground in an underground suite in historic Sala Silvermine, one of the world’s best preserved mine settings. Here you will see dark winding galleries, vast caverns and magic lakes. Even to those not familiar with mining, the underground setting is sensational. It is cold, damp and dark, but very beautiful.
Experienced guides tell you of a fantastic chapter in industrial history. During its heyday, production amounted to more than 3 tons of silver a year, and a total of more than 400 tons of silver and about 40,000 tons of lead were extracted – completely by hand!
15. Half Graffiti Room, Marseille, France
Imagine walking into your hotel room and experiencing this! Artist Tilt has created Panic Room inside the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France. The unique hotel has five rooms which are redone annually by a different artist. In essence, they invite artists, graphic designers and painters into their rooms to create amazing and distinct atmospheres.
Though there isn’t much information about this particular room yet (we’re still searching), the photos, taken just last month by designer and photographer Big Addict (aka Roudet Benjamin), speak for themselves. While one side of the room is decorated in stark white, the other has Tilt’s colorful graffiti spray painted all over, including the walls, the floor, and even the bed!
