Minecraft is not one of those games where you beat the final boss and stop playing. It’s a living and breathing organism with endless possibilities! Don’t let the blocky graphics discourage you. Minecraft is like an enormous box of LEGO bricks, where you can create anything you want: a hole in the ground you call home, an Irish castle with a pint of Guinness, a giant Swedish meatball, or… something much more massive!
Here are seven mind-blowing places you can visit in Minecraft.
1. Minas Tirith
Yes, the Minas Tirith – the capital city of Gondor. You can actually visit Tolkien’s legendary creation in Minecraft. Players who built this fictional city used every bit of available visual information they could find, as well as Tolkien’s description. If you ever wanted to visit Gondor, this is as close as you’ll ever get, probably.
Unlike Minas Tirith, Denmark is a real place, but it’s also been recreated in Minecraft. The Danish government has created a scale model of their entire country, and it looks quite good if you don’t mind the flat buildings. This one time US players snuck in some TNT and blew up the virtual Copenhagen.
3. Planet Earth
Imagine one day waking up and finding yourself stuck in a Minecraft version of the real world. Sure it would suck to have zombies and giant spiders roaming around at night, but on the other hand, you can now punch trees to get wood! So yeah, this Earth-MC, let’s call it that, is 16200 by 32400 blocks across, making it a 1:1500 scale model. But clearly, this tiny copy doesn’t do our planet justice, so some 100k players decided to make a 1:1 replica of the entire Earth.
4. Los Angeles
LA is probably one of the most popular cities on the planet. It certainly takes in a lot of visitors each year, who just want to have fun and maybe see some rogue celebrities up close. And now, we have a way of exploring the City of Angels from our laptops! Of course, this means no night clubs or celebs, but hey, it’s still cool.
5. Tower of Babylon
Have you heard of the ancient World Wonders? One of them is the Great Pyramid, and it’s the only construction that’s still standing to this day. But maybe the coolest one was the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, built in 600 BC. The Minecraft players were able to recreate not only the said Gardens but also the legendary Tower of Babylon, which, according to the myth, was doing to pierce the skies and reach heaven. It’s a sight to behold, even in Minecraft.
6. Hogwarts School of Magic
How many of you have dreamed of going to Hogwarts school of Magic? Well, this is your chance! People for the “Floo Network” poured their hearts into creating the Hogwarts school in Minecraft. I don’t know how they did it, but they even got the floating candles in the dining hall.
And finally, we have the most incredible creation out of all of them – the entire continent of Westeros, straight from the Game of Thrones. It’s a scaled-down replica, but it has almost every location from the books or the TV show. Here you can visit the Wall, the King’s Landing, Winterfell, and other iconic cities. So hop on in and give it a try!
