The Most Unique McDonald’s Stores All Over the World

You'd be surprised at how the Golden Arches fit perfectly into medieval style buildings and modern architecture!

With over 36,000 locations all over the globe, it’s safe to say that McDonald’s is easily one of the most recognizable buildings you’ll find. While they don’t have a “standard” look to their buildings and interiors, you can be sure that you’ll find the Golden Arches, their latest celebrity endorser, and whatever branding material they’re using at the time.

But even though these are common themes in each McDonald’s venue, you might be surprised that they still manage to fit perfectly into these stores that, at first glance, you wouldn’t think housed a McDonald’s inside!

1. Bray, Ireland

If da Vinci, Elizabeth I, and Shakespeare were looking to chow down on some nuggets, this is what their Mickey D’s would look like. Yes, even their interiors are reminiscent of rustic Irish pubs!

2. Kristiansand, Norway

Then there’s this architecture marvel made of 460 glass panels! If you’re a McDonald’s enthusiast, you simply have to pay this store a visit!

If you need proof of how widespread McDonald’s is, even Guantanamo Bay has one! This sole McDonald’s store in Cuba is only accessible to the bay’s personnel, though.

Just because McDonald’s is cheap and easily accessible, doesn’t mean they don’t go out of their way to ensure their guests have a lavish experience alongside their Big Mac and McFlurry.
