The world is full of amazing landmarks that can inspire you no matter what you’re doing. Whether it’s seeing the Eiffel Tower in Paris or hiking along The Great Wall of China, these famous landmarks are sure to inspire you before graduation day.
The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China is the world’s longest man-made structure, stretching for more than 5,000 miles across northern China. It was built over 2,000 years ago to keep out invaders and protect Chinese territory from raids by nomadic tribes in the north.
The wall consists of numerous walls that have been connected over time as well as some ruins from earlier walls that were destroyed or abandoned after being used up by the army at that time. The Great Wall has numerous passes where you can enter or exit onto another section of it–and there are even multiple ways to get into Beijing itself!
The Colosseum is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of Rome, Italy. Built of concrete and stone, it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles (naumachiae), animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles and dramas based on Classical mythology. The Romans also used it for fights between trained animals or armed combatants (venationes). The building ceased to be used for entertainment in the medieval era but was later adapted for use as housing and workshops during the Renaissance before being restored to its original function as a theatre by Napoleon’s troops in 1816. It now hosts concerts with orchestral accompaniment as well as opera performances throughout the year while also serving as an important tourist attraction that has been visited by millions from all over the world since its completion over two millennia ago!
The Golden Gate Bridge
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge in San Francisco, California, which connects the city to Marin County across the Golden Gate Strait. It was completed in 1937 and opened to traffic the same year.
The Golden Gate Bridge has become an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and California as well as an icon of American progressivism. Since its completion, it has become one of the world’s most photographed bridges due to its proximity to tourist destinations such as Fisherman’s Wharf and Lombard Street; its orange paint job also makes it very visible in photos taken during sunrise or sunset (when they glow pink).
The Roman Coliseum
The Roman Coliseum is an iconic landmark that has stood for more than 2,000 years. It was built in 80 AD and used to host gladiator fights and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts and executions. The Colosseum was also used as a venue for chariot races until its final event in 523 AD when it was destroyed by fire during riots between rival factions of charioteers competing there that day.
Today you can visit this historic site where you can walk through the ruins of what remains today or catch a performance at one of their many festivals held throughout the year including opera performances!
The Eiffel Tower is one of the most iconic landmarks in the world. It’s also one of the tallest, standing at 1,063 feet tall and offering breathtaking views from its top. The tower was built in 1889 for an exposition celebrating France’s 100th birthday; it was supposed to be temporary but has since become a permanent fixture in Parisian culture (and skyline). Each year, more than 6 million visitors climb up its stairs to get a glimpse at what lies beyond their cityscape.
To climb up this iconic structure yourself, you’ll need some patience: There are 2 staircases–one leading up from ground level on either side of the tower–that take about 30 minutes each way if you’re going at a good clip (and even longer if you stop frequently). Once you reach your destination after ascending 343 steps total (or riding one of two elevators), there are various viewpoints available depending on what part of town interests you most. If seeing how far away things seem when viewed from above isn’t enough excitement for you yet then try taking advantage of one last opportunity before leaving by scaling down again using another set
Central Park in New York City
Central Park is one of New York City’s most popular attractions. It’s a great place to walk, relax and enjoy nature. There are lots of attractions in Central Park including the zoo, ice skating rink and carousel ride. You can also catch a performance at the SummerStage concert series or visit Belvedere Castle which overlooks the entire park and surrounding cityscape.
Central Park has many restaurants where you can grab some food or drinks while enjoying views of this landmark! The park has plenty of playgrounds for kids who want to play games like baseball or soccer on their own time too!
Statues of David and Venus de Milo, Paris, France
You must visit the Louvre in Paris, France. The museum houses two statues that you should see before graduating: David and Venus de Milo.
The David is located inside the Louvre’s Denon wing, which is where you will find most of the sculptures on display. The statue was created by Michelangelo as part of his commission for King Louis XII (who died before its completion). Its enormous size makes it one of the largest works ever created by a single artist during their lifetime; it stands over 17 feet tall!
The Venus de Milo was discovered in 1820 off shore from Skyros island in Greece by a Greek sailor named Athanasios Bousiris; he then sold it to Jean-Baptiste Fouque who sold it again to Alexandre Dumas pere (father), author of The Three Musketeers novels among others; his son Thomas inherited this beautiful nude sculpture after his father passed away but lost interest due to its lack of arms so he donated it back home where she still sits today inside Athens’ National Archaeological Museum
Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Christ the Redeemer, also known as Cristo Redentor (Portuguese for “Christ the Redeemer”), is a statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It stands 39 meters tall and weighs 635 tons. The statue was built by French sculptor Paul Landowski and structural engineers Gheorghe Leonida and Gheorghe Halmaghi between 1926-1931.
The statue overlooks Guanabara Bay from atop Corcovado mountain at an altitude of 710 meters (2,300 ft). It’s one of Rio de Janeiro’s most recognizable landmarks and can be seen from many places throughout the city as well as far away across Guanabara Bay from Niteroi or São Paulo state’s coastlines–even though it does not appear quite so large when viewed from these vantage points due to its distance away from them!
Buckingham Palace in London, England
Buckingham Palace is the largest palace in the world, and it’s also the official London residence of the British monarch. Located in central London, this famous landmark has been home to some of history’s most important figures–including Queen Elizabeth II and her family.
The palace was built in 1803 as a private residence for King George III and his wife, Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (who was originally from Germany). Over time it evolved into what we know today: an opulent building with hundreds of rooms spread over 775 acres (3 km2).
Today, Buckingham Palace houses about 700 members of staff who work there every day–from gardeners to chefs–alongside royal family members who spend most weekends at Windsor Castle instead.
