What are the Seven Wonders of the World?

Browse → Culture → People & Places
Perhaps you’ve heard of the Seven Wonders of the World. Also known as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, these amazing structures are admired for their grand appearance, as well as the difficult work and impressive talent required to build them! These works were created more than two thousand years ago and noted by writers and observers of the time.


Rather than being scattered all over the world, the Seven Wonders were located in the region near the Mediterranean Sea, as well as in an area of the world called the Middle East, which includes parts of Asia and Northern Africa.  As amazing as it would be to see all Seven Wonders of the Ancient World in person, only one is still standing today the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt!

Curious about the others?! A list will follow, and in parentheses, you will see the country where each would be located today if still intact: the Hanging Gardens of Babylon (Iraq), the Statue of Zeus at Olympia (Greece), the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus (Turkey) , the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus (Turkey), the Colossus of Rhodes (Greece), and the Lighthouse of Alexandria (Egypt).
