The list of the classical wonders of the world has existed for many centuries, and the wonders of ancient Architecture at that time were chosen by privileged scholars. The new seven wonders of the world were selected by over 600 million people who voted for the structures from 2000 to 2007.

The Great Wall of China, Petra’s Jordan, the Roman Colosseum, the Indian Taj Mahal and Central American Chichen Itza, Machu Picchu and the Statue of Christ the Redeemer. These buildings are a unique cross-section of world architecture and offer a unique opportunity to compare the approaches, but also cultures of the entire world and different historical periods. Come and travel with us across the world and time and peek behind the curtain of the creation of the architectural monuments that have helped shape the current world.
