Various lists of the Wonders of the World have been compiled from antiquity to the present day, to catalog the world’s most spectacular natural wonders and man-made structures. The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World is the first known list of the most remarkable creations of classical antiquity; it was based on guidebooks popular among Hellenic sightseers and only includes works located around the Mediterranean rim. The number seven was chosen because the Greeks believed it represented perfection and plenty, and because it was the number of the five planets known anciently, plus the sun and moon.

From the spectacular Colossus of Rhodes, to the magnificent lighthouse of Alexandria, the Pyramid of Khufu, the Hanging gardens of Babylon, the Temple of Artemis, the Statue of Zeus, the Tomb of Mausolus, of the 7 ancient wonders of the world, only the great pyramids of Giza near Cairo in Egypt remain. Nowadays the ‘modern’ 7 Wonders of the World are officially: the Coliseum in Rome, the great Wall of China, the Statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, the Taj Mahal in India, Macchu Picchu in Peru, Chichen Itza in Mexico and Petra in Jordan.

However, limiting the world’s ‘marvels’ to seven seems unnecessarily limited; which is why we have created our own list of 100 places, monuments or towns which we feel merit the name “wonders of the world.” Over this series of 13×52 minute documentaries we will explore them all. Each documentary presents seven wonders, with seven minutes on each, including one documentary on the official 7 modern wonders.

How many of the world’s most interesting places have you seen? These show will introduce most of them to you. It will inspire you to travel and explore the world. And you will definitely put some of these breathtaking places to your “must-visit” list.
