About This Quiz

Are you ready to take in some of the world's most breathtaking and historical sites? If you like history, if you like geography and if you like beauty, this quiz is just for you! Think you have what it takes to ace it?

Throughout the world, cities and countrysides are flowered with statues, buildings and other structures, all of which hold a meaning deep within history. We call them monuments. Each takes on its own form and serves to honor and remember notable historical figures. Whether as a temple, a rock formation, or a marble statue, each monument is special and meaningful to the country where it stands. If there's one thing for sure, cultures may vary, but people all over the world hold similar values when it comes to preserving history and honoring the impacts of our political, religious and social leaders.

Take the Great Buddha of Kamakura and the Christ The Redeemer statues, for example. Both religious icons - both larger than life - both visited by millions of people each year - yet they exist in opposite areas of the world, Japan and Brazil!

So are you ready to check out more of the world's monuments? Pack your bags, we're heading to India, France, Iceland, Mexico and beyond with this ultimate international monuments quiz!
