25 top landmarks

Pretty much, all of us have looked at a post card, showing a landmark and have questioned ourselves about the monument’s country of origin! Pretty much all of us have thoughts of traveling in destinations, simply for admiring live one of those monuments! The landmarks are top tourist sights, attracting the interest of every traveler, are the main attraction of the city or country, where they belong and just a comment about them is enough to have yourself a nice travel story. Who saw a photo of the Acropolis or of the tower of Eiffel and didn’t think of Athens or Paris respectively?  The popular site tripadvisor presented the top 25 landmarks in the world, for 2016, as these were chosen by the site’s readers. Personally, i had the joy and luck to visit 9 of these landmarks and surely i wish to visit the rest of them! So, lets see which are these:
