Once in Rio de Janeiro, in anticipation of the start of the carnival, take a walk along its streets. You might be lucky enough to stumble upon a monument dedicated to the Volkswagen Beetle. The monument is interesting in that it depicts two cars connected to each other by bottoms.

In China and Japan, the diversity and “strangeness” of monuments will delight manga lovers. After all, it is usually the anime heroes who are depicted by local sculptors in their works. For example, in Tokyo, at the train station, there is a three-meter giant, made according to the work of Tomino Yoshiyuki. He created a whole world of "handicrafts" and now fans of this world can visit his favorite. After all, it was not in vain that they collected almost 2,400 signatures?

The ideal building for the museum with the motto “if you want to believe it or not, but it exists!” Is… a building that suffered from an earthquake? It turns out yes.

On the roof of this strange house is a huge dinosaur devouring a wall clock. Moreover, their arrows go in the opposite direction, while managing to show the correct time.
But not always monuments serve only entertainment purposes. For example, in Holland there is a monument to radioactive decay. This is a building that stores radioactive waste received from two nuclear reactors. This building was originally bright yellow, but every 20 years they plan to paint it in a dimmer color - as a sign of the disappearance of the nuclear threat from waste.
