Learning About the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World in Our Lady Lake, Florida Apartments

It’s possible that while living in our Lady Lake, Florida apartments, you’ve heard about the Seven Wonders of the World. However, did you know there are actually two sets of them? That’s right, there are the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. All of the modern wonders – such as the Empire State Building, Golden Gate Bridge, and Panama Canal – are still standing. What is especially intriguing about the ancient wonders is that all but one, the Great Pyramids of Giza, were destroyed over time.

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World are:

  1. The Great Pyramids of Giza in Giza Necropolis, Egypt
  2. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon in modern-day Iraq
  3. The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus in Selcuk, Turkey
  4. The Statue of Zeus at Olympia in Olympia, Greece
  5. The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus in Bodrum, Turkey
  6. The Colossus of Rhodes in Rhodes, Greece
  7. The Lighthouse of Alexandria in Alexandria, Egypt

Though all but one of these wonders are now gone, they are still an important historical element of the world we live in and can be fun to learn about.

While it may not be listed as a Wonder of the World, we still think our apartment community is wonderful. If you would like more information about our Lady Lake, Florida apartments at The Quarters, please give our leasing office a call or stop by today for a tour. We would be delighted to show you around.
