World Wonder Destination 3: Cairo, Egypt
The Great Pyramids
Located on the west bank of the River Nile on the outskirts of Cairo, the pyramids at Giza in Egypt are the only example of the original Seven Wonders of the World still standing. The Egyptians constructed the pyramids between 2700 BC and 1000 BC to serve as royal tombs. Built without the use of cranes, pulleys, or lifting tackle, the massive structures stand as testaments to the engineering skills of the ancient Egyptians.
