5 Famous sites with lookalikes that can be visited for free

The world is filled with amazing locations, some of which are man-made. Below are 5 glorious and  popular sights we know and love. But do you know about their 5 alternative areas, as good as their overhyped twins?

Let’s see:

#2 Notre-Dame de Paris and Amiens Cathedral

Both gothic churches are located in France and almost look exactly the same. While Notre-Dame is located in Paris, Amiens Cathedral is located in the north of the country. But, how does Notre-Dame rise to fame? Its popularity was increased when Victor Hugo wrote a novel about a gypsy named Esmeralda. Although the cathedral in Amiens can not be popular, you can visit it anytime of the year with less tourists.

  1. Fun post, Jack. I’ve visited the colloseums in both Rome and Pula, and I must agree that the Croatian was was a lot less stressful!
    However I don’t know where you got the information about Angkor Wat and Borobudur. In fact the latter is Indonesia’s most popular tourist attraction and gets around 4 million visits a year, compared to about 1 million for the Cambodian site 🙂
