World's Wonders

In our first post, we we visited the highest buildings. In our second map, we visit the world's most majestic buildings. The list includes the Classical 7 Wonders from which only the Great Pyramid of Giza survives. Modern approximate locations are displayed. Additionally, this map includes the somewhat polemic New7Wonders of the World: A compilation made by the private New7Wonders Foundation where people voted for their favorite one by telephone or internet. The 7 winners were announced in 2007. For completeness, the remaining 13 finalists are also included. The list is sorted by approximate construction year. Hope you enjoy and learn a little bit in the journey! As a heads up, our third map (Soon to come) will please some old-school gamers around.
