The 7 Wonders of the World are often referred to as the seven wonders of the ancient world. It’s a question that’s often asked – what are the 7 wonders of the world?
Over the years many different lists have been created to document the most spectacular and awe inspiring constructions and natural things around the world.
The first known list of seven wonders of the world was compiled by greek writers. The list consisted of seven ancient wonders based solely on classical works around the Mediterranean rim. Unfortunately today only the Great Pyramid of Giza still stands.
- Great Pyramid of Giza
- Hanging Gardens of Babylon
- Statue of Zeus at Olympia
- Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
- Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus
- Colossus of Rhodes
- Lighthouse of Alexandria
On July 7, 2007 in Lisbon, Portugal a new list of new 7 wonders of the world was announced. The vote was devised by led by Bernard Weber and organised by Swiss government controlled New Seven Wonders Foundation.
