Default New 7 wonders Of the World

http://www.new7wonders.com/index.php


Kind of weird but I guess we are going to have 7 new wonders of the world, i guess they replace the old ones or wtf? This is a neat idea but its kind of like saying " We are rewriting the Bible" oh yes and we get to vote for them lol.



There are 21 monuments you can elect:

The Acropolis (Greece)
Alhambra (Spain)
Angkor (Cambodia)
Chichen Itzá (Mexico)
Christ Redeemer (Brazil)
The Colosseum (Italy)
Easter Island (Chile)
Eiffel Tower (France)
Great Wall of China (China)
Hagia Sophia (Turkey)
Kiyomizu Temple (Japan)
Kremlin (Russia)
Machu Picchu (Peru)
Neuschwanstein Castle (Germany)
Petra (Jordan)
Pyramids of Giza (Egypt, the only old world wonder still remaining)
Statue of Liberty (USA)
Stonehenge (UK)
Sydney Opera House (Australia)
Taj Mahal (India)
Timbuktu (Mali)


On September 5, 2006, in Athens during the launch of the New7Wonders World Tour, the location of the Official Declaration of the New 7 Wonders of the World was announced: Lisbon, Portugal.

The New 7 Wonders of the World will be announced during the Official Declaration ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal on Saturday, July 7, 2007 - 07.07.07.

The Portuguese event agency Realizar Impact Marketing, known for its innovative, international multimedia, will create and produce the event on July 7, 2007, which will be broadcast around the world.
