    Default Top 10 Mythical Places You Want To Live In

    A mythological place (also called "mythical place") is a place that a particular culture describes in their mythology and folklore as existent, that might have existed in earlier times but its actual location is now lost. Unlike fictional places, which are only used in fictional writings, mythological places are often considered un(re)discovered places in the real world. While they may appear in fictional stories, there is often some scientific, historical or archeological evidence, as well as myths and legends that indicate such places may have existed or are awaiting discovery, rediscovery or at least explanation about their location.

    "Mythical" can also refer to a state of religious influence.

    Camelot



    Reason for living here: King Arthur lives here and you can joust all day long!

    Camelot comes from legendary British tales of King Arthur - who may, or may not, have been real. In Camelot we find Arthur’s famous round table where his knights get to sit around like equals and have a few beers while they discuss their latest knightly conquests. Camelot is surrounded by forests and rivers, so you can get in a spot of fishing and hunting if it floats your boat. Justice and peace reign in Camelot. Oh - and the ultra-hot (in a medieval way) Guinevere lives there too!

    Garden of Eden



    Reason for living here: No need to work, food a plenty, and everyone is naked!

    Many believe Eden was a real place, and just as many don’t. But the fact is, if it were real, this would be the spot to settle down! The Garden of Eden is full of trees bent over with fruit and all the animals are friendly. Not only do you get to eat until you can eat no more, but you can ride lions and tigers all afternoon! Seriously - it doesn’t get more awesome than that. Just watch out for the snake!

    El Dorado



    Reason for living here: It is a City of Gold!

    El Dorado is a legendary city of gold. It is seen as a type of “Holy Grail” for each man - the thing you most seek in life is found here. Basically, whatever your fetish, you will not leave unsatisfied from this place. Better yet, it is somewhere in South America, so it shouldn’t cost you much to get there!

    Cockaigne



    Reason for living here: It rains cheese!

    Cockaigne is a land of contraries, where all the restrictions of society are defied (abbots beaten by their monks), sexual liberty is open (nuns flipped over to show their bottoms), and food is plentiful (skies that rain cheeses). This is a place where idleness and gluttony are the principal occupations - who doesn’t want that?

    Beimeni



    Reason for living here: You never grow old

    Beimeni is a legendary city - said to be home to the fountain of youth! It is also a land of great wealth - an earthly paradise. Legend has it that Juan Ponce de León discovered Florida while he was looking for Beimeni and the fountain of youth. Kind of ironic I guess.

    Valhalla



    Reason for living here: Battle and feast daily

    Valhalla, the “afterworld” of the Vikings is a place where all the dead warriors and gods live. Now - you have to be dead to go there, but it is worth it! Every day you get to fight against giants! But wait - it gets better. At the end of every battle you get to feast on the cosmic boar and drink beer all night long! When you finish eating the boar (Sæhrímnir) he is brought back to life so you can start eating him all over again! Oh - and the Valkyries (hot goddesses) live here too - so you are not likely to get bored.

    Avalon



    Reason for living here: If it’s good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for us!

    Avalon is the place that King Arthur ended up before he died. It is also the place where King Arthur’s sword (Excalibur) was made. In Avalon you can get the best apples in the world - and presumably pretty damned good cider too. When Jesus came back to life, he is said to have visited Avalon with Joseph of Arimathea (the guy who gave Jesus his tomb). I told you the apples were good.

    Shangri-La



    Reason for living here: It’s a utopia

    Shangri-La is a mystical valley in the Himalayas. It is a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. The people who live at Shangri-La are almost immortal, living years beyond the normal lifespan. The place is so popular that the Nazis sent an expedition out to find it in 1938. Fortunately they didn’t find it!

    City of the Caesars



    Reason for living here: Lots of gold and diamonds - and it’s magic!

    Most of the descriptions of the City of the Caesars talks about the city as a prosperous and rich city full of gold, silver and diamonds. It is described as an enchanted city that appears in certain moments. At least one description says it located in between two mountains one of gold and another of diamonds.

    Ys



    Reason for living here: Orgies

    Ys is a mythical city that was built on the coast of Brittany and later swallowed by the ocean. Ys was built below sea level by Gradlon, King of Cornouaille, upon the request of his daughter Dahut, who loved the sea. It was the most beautiful and impressive city in the world. Unfortunately for the King (but fortunately for those who live there), Dahut was a bad girl and she started throwing wild parties and orgies.

    You have to be a Yeti in order to get to Shangri-La. I would rather look for the "Lost Kingdom of Mustang" somewhere near the Himalayan. .
