Why do people travel? To break out of the usual rhythm and plunge into a completely new atmosphere, visit where you have never been, or visit your favorite places again. The aesthetic component of travel is also very important: we all want to admire the beauty of this world. And, of course, take pictures of it and share with friends. Every day, people from all over the world upload more than 52 million photos to Instagram, and thanks to the geolocation marks, you can find out which places are the most popular. What for? If millions of people can’t resist posting photos, then there really is something special in each of these places.
At the end of last month, the Instagram press service published a list of the 10 most popular locations marked in the app in 2017.
1. Disneyland, California, USA
There is no person in the world who would not be delighted to find himself in a fairy tale, but in Disneyland you feel that way. Fairy castles, cartoon characters and wide smiles of adults and children – these are the photos from Disneyland, the place that has been celebrated on Instagram the most times this year.
2. Times Square, New York, USA
You can’t visit New York and not post a photo from Times Square – the most photographed square in the world.
3. Central Park, New York, USA

A well-groomed park in the center of the stone jungle of a modern metropolis looks like an oasis at any time of the year: in summer it is green and fresh, and in winter white snow shines in the shine of thousands of lights.
4. Eiffel Tower, Paris, France
For the fourth time, one of the most romantic places in the world is included in this list. You can, of course, try to look at the city and the tower with an open mind, but it is much more pleasant to succumb to the general mood and feel the love in the air.
5. Disneyland, Tokyo, Japan
The first Disneyland to be built outside of the United States was the first and only destination in Asia on this list. When a fairy tale comes to life in reality, it is so difficult to refrain from trying to “stop” this moment and not to share it with friends.
6. Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Orlando, USA
Wow! Of the millions (and even more) places on Earth, the parks where Disney cartoon characters live have resonated so much in the hearts of people that three of them are in the top 10.
7. Louvre, Paris, France
The famous museum is good not only for its collection, but also for its exterior – the shining glass pyramid on the square in front of the old royal palace opens up space for creativity. Who doesn’t try to take an original shot here?
9. Brooklyn Bridge, New York, USA

It is difficult to say which photos are more on Instagram: those taken on the bridge or those where it can be seen in all its glory from the side. The main thing is that they all turn out to be cool from any angle and in any lighting. Do not believe me – just look at the geotag.
10. Las Vegas, USA
Take a photo against the backdrop of the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower at the same time? Easily! Las Vegas has everything, this city is full of every imaginable color around the clock, music is always playing here, glasses are full, and time flies faster than anywhere else. It’s amazing how so many people manage to get their phones out and take a picture.
