    The 7 New World Wonders

    From the ancient days to our times, there have been numerous lists of the Wonders of the World, each compiled according to different criteria.

    One of the most widespread compilations lists the following man-made objects as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World:

    -Hanging Gardens of Babylon
    -Colossus of Rhodes
    -Lighthouse of Alexandria
    -Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
    -Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
    -Great Pyramid of Giza
    -Statue of Zeus at Olympia

    From this list, unfortunately, only the pyramids are still preserved. Other buildings and monuments have become dilapidated or destroyed by earthquakes, the passage of time or war.

    There have been several attempts to create a new list of exceptional buildings of the modern world. NewOpenWorldFoundation, established by Swiss Bernard Weber, has had extensive media coverage in recent years. The main goal of the foundation was bringing people together through their shared cultural heritage worldwide. In an online action people chose 'The New 7 Wonders of the World' as global heritage representatives.

    Today we would like to make you well-acquainted with this new list:

    -Taj Mahal
    -Giza Necropolis
    -Petra
    -Colosseum
    -Chichen Itza
    -Machu Picchu
    -Great Wall of China
    -Christ the Redeemer

    Stay tuned because in the next couple of weeks we will present you with each of the new world wonders in more detail!
