Easter Island (Rapa Nui) is one of the most mysterious places of our planet. Located in the southeastern part of Pacific Ocean, this island is one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world. It is situated more than 3,500 km away from the coast of South America.
The main sights of the island are moai, monolithic human figures carved from rock by the Rapa Nui people in XIII-XV centuries. Many of them were set on stone platforms called ahu around the island's perimeter. Moai were used in religious ceremonies, but their concrete function hasn’t been found out yet.
