However, time does not stand still, new buildings are being erected every day. The list of seven can continue to be updated.

"The Golden Bridge".There are many tourist destinations in Vietnam. One of them is located in the city of Da Nang - "Golden Bridge". It is 150 meters long and is located at an altitude of 1,414 meters above sea level. The peculiarity of the bridge is that it is built in such a way that two large human hands are holding on to it. It is called the "Golden Bridge" because it is golden in color. Well, the hands appear to be made of stone, but are actually made of steel and deliberately made the fingers rusty to make them look like they have been kept for centuries. The bridge was opened specifically for tourists in 2018. It is now among the unique places in the world.


"The Terracotta Army".This is one of China's unique historical monuments, found near the tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi. The clay complex, located in the city of Xi'an, consists of sculptures of 8099 warriors and horses. The mystery and scale of the relic is as large as the Egyptian pyramids. According to researchers, it is assumed that it was made for the emperor, in order to preserve power and safety in the otherworld. The reason is that earlier in China there was a tendency to bury with the emperor and his living army. Well, the Terracotta Army was the first clay military sculptures to replace humans. It took 38 years to build the complex. In addition, statues of acrobats, musicians and officials and bronze carriages were found during the excavations. In 1987, at the 11th session of UNESCO, the Terracotta Army was included in the list of “World Heritage”.

In 1984, U.S. President Ronald Reagan, who came with his wife to see the exhibit, praised it as "A great miracle belonging to mankind.

And in 1986, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and Prince Philip also came to see the relic.

In 1998, U.S. President Bill Clinton came with his family, and in 2004, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited the complex. So, if you are lucky enough to visit as well, be sure to visit.


"Shining Beach". The Maldives are the most visited places by tourists. But many did not know that there is an island of Vaadhu with a mysterious beach. Understandably, everyone would be surprised by the "shining" beach, where at night you get the impression that the stars in the sky are falling under the water.
