The ancient world is filled with spectacular marvels of nature, architecture, and engineering. Learn and explore the many wonders of the world with an app.
Several lists of seven wonders of the world have been compiled for centuries to keep a record of the most mind-blowing natural and human-made phenomena. The first known record of a list of wonders was compiled in the Middle Ages, and they were feats of artistic ingenuity and spectacular engineering that we refer to today as the seven wonders of the ancient world. These ancient wonders are The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes, and the Lighthouse of Alexandria in Egypt. Of the seven ancient wonders, only the Pyramid of Giza still stands. You can learn about the creation and histories of these ancient landmarks while exploring the world from a classical perspective by downloading the Seven Wonders of the World app.
Also, the modern world is filled with spectacular feats of engineering and architecture. At the turn of the millennium, a campaign began to pick seven wonders of the contemporary world from a selection of over 200. In 2007, after voting involving over a hundred million people around the globe, seven monuments were selected. The selected wonders were: The Great Wall of China, the Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the Roman Colosseum, the Taj Mahal in India, Machu Picchu in Peru, Chichen Itza in Mexico, and Petra in Jordan. These wonders are a must-see for people who love to have adventures. Also, facts about the seven wonders of the modern world and information on their present states are obtainable from apps. For example, a virtual tour of the seven wonders of the modern world is available on the 7 Wonders: VR Tours HD app.
However, human-made structures aren’t the only wonders to be explored. There are physical, aquatic, and celestial sights on earth that can only be described as wondrous. In 1997, CNN compiled a list that we now regard as the seven natural wonders of the world. These include Mount Everest in Nepal, Harbor of Rio de Janeiro, Victoria Falls on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border, Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Paricutin Volcano in Mexico, and the Aurora Borealis in the Northern Hemisphere. If you love to enjoy life, then exploring a wonder of nature should be on your bucket list. There are other categories of wonders like the seven wonders of the industrial world and the seven wonders of the solar system. The Wonders of the World app, for instance, offers you a detailed virtual tour of different categories of world wonders, including their history and facts.
