Various lists of the Wonders of the World have been compiled from antiquity to the present day, to catalogue the world’s most spectacular natural wonders and manmade 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. The human inquisitiveness is so wide that it would take centuries to explore the facts of the world. However, this series tries to achieve the impossible by presenting you almost all you ever wanted to know. The reader can surf through the collection and gather all information about famed personalities, countries, languages, professions, computers, health and fitness, sports, quotations, world, traveling destinations, musical instruments, hobbies, spiritual teachings, health disorders, history, etc.
