The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World were a collection of remarkable constructions listed by various Greek authors, including Antipater of Sidon and Philo of Byzantium. The classic list featured seven wonders located in the Eastern Mediterranean:
Statue of Zeus at Olympia
The Great Pyramid at Giza
Colossus of Rhodes
Maussoleum at Halicasnassus
Lighthouse at Alexandria
Hanging Gardens at Babylon
Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
All of them have modern alternatives such as the world’s tallest pyramid-shaped structure, the colossal Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea – dubbed the «Hotel of Doom» , or the Dubai Miracle Garden.
The world is full of magnificent examples of man’s accomplishments and modern wonders. Choose one that leaves you in complete awe.
Why do you especially marvel at it? Where is it? Who promoted or designed it?
