How Many Of These Iconic Landmarks Can You Name?

Since 1889, more than 250 million people have visited the Eiffel tower. The Great Wall of China gets over 10 million visitors per year, and the Statue of Liberty 4 million.

You probably get my point. These landmarks receive a ton of visitors and are centrepieces to the surrounding economy. Some people literally travel with the sole purpose of seeing these landmarks in person.

I’ve put together a collection of 21 different landmarks; some well known and others not so much. Have a look through and see how many you recognize. Feel free to comment any questions. Enjoy!

How’d you do?

I’ve seen quite a few of these landmarks in person, but definitely plan on seeing them all at some point in my life!

It’s really amazing how creative and resourceful humans are. If you think about how old the Giza Sphinx and the Pyramids are. Or how magnificently big the Great Wall of China is. It’s really amazing!
