Summary
Featuring stunning photography, Wonders of the World traces the history of many unique places and sightsancient wonders, modern and futuristic works of architecture, and some of natures incredible gifts. By the year 300 BC, the ancient Greeks had already identified their seven wonders of the worldthe most amazing architectural and artistic achievements of man in the ancient world. The Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Rhodes Colossus, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, and others that no longer exist today were testament to an impressive past and referenced mythology, extraordinary figures and ancient empires. Today, the number of wonders continues to grow. In addition to the new seven wonders of the world identified in 2007, there are incredible natural sites where water, land and skywithout the intervention of manhave created rare and startlingly beautiful phenomena. The Iguazu Falls, Ayers Rock, the Great Coral Reef, and the Perito Moreno glacier are symbols of natures power and are as awe-inspiring as man-made wonders such as Angkor Wat, Machu Picchu, the Parthenon, Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, and many others
