9. Train Church (Russia)
It looks a bit crazy, but it seems that there is a widespread idea in Russia to organize Orthodox Christian churches in old railway cars. It might seem like it's a modern phenomenon, but a bit of retrospective digging reveals that some of them had already appeared when the railroad itself began in Russia.

10. Cliff Church
Located in the country of Georgia, this unique church on Katskhi pillar sits on top of a rock formation which towers 130 ft high. Not unusual enough for you? How about this, a Georgian monk has been living in it for nearly 20 years. Still want a higher dose of weirdness than the fact that the rusty creaking ladder used to go to this church is called the "stairway to heaven?" Well, the high church is estimated to have been built sometime between the 6th and 8th centuries and it is believed to actually have pagan roots, as a symbol of fertility to some forgotten god.
