About This Quiz

Ready to do some breathtaking sightseeing?

While the country that you call home may have beautiful and iconic monuments, cities and landmarks, all over the world there are thousands of other natural places that are just as gorgeous. This quiz takes a selection of notable locations from both nature and civilization, so that you can put your knowledge of geography to the test!

There are some locations in the natural world that oftentimes just seem to stand out above the rest. Examples of these breathtaking natural locations are the Great Barrier Reef, the Grand Canyon, Ayers Rock, Yellowstone National Park and Angel Falls. On the other hand, in an effort to not be outdone by mother nature, we as humans have (over the millennia) constructed buildings and monuments that can rival the best that mother nature has to offer. These iconic locations can be representations of economic achievements and progress (like Wall Street and the Empire State building), ancient monuments to historic civilizations (like The Colosseum and the Great Pyramid of Giza), or sacred religious landmarks (like The Great Buddha and St. Peter's Basilica). 

So pack your suitcase and get ready to take a virtual ride around the world with this quiz!
