The New Seven Wonders

After a global poll, in which around 100 million votes were cast, seven new wonders of the world have been chosen.

Want to see them? OK, here are videos of them embedded on Google Maps:

Christ Redeemer, Brazil
The Great Wall, China
Machu Picchu, Peru
Petra, Jordan
The Roman Colloseum, Italy
The Taj Mahal, India
Chichén Itzá, Mexico

Alternatively, you can view all seven on Google Earth.

One tourist destination that didn't make it on to the list was Prague's Charles Bridge. However that hasn't stopped the lavish celebrations that are taking place today to celebrate its 650th anniversary. You can of course watch a video of the Charles Bridge on Google Maps.
