There are many
different wonders in the world, but most well-known among them are Seven
Wonders of antiquity. My favorite Wonder is the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, or, as
they are also called, the Hanging Gardens of Semiramida. This wonder is the most mystical
one, because no one knows if it ever existed. This is because no evidence has
been found about exact location of these gardens in Babylon. According to the legend, the Hanging Gardens looked like a huge green mountain, full of trees, shrubs and
beautiful flowers. The legend also tells that the Hanging Gardens were built by the king of Babylon for his queen, who had been born in another country and was
missing its green nature a lot. One of the curious facts is that the queen’s name
wasn’t Semiramida; Semiramida was another queen, who had been living in Babylon
several centuries before. Anyway, still many people call Hanging Gardens of
Babylon in the wrong way the Hanging Gardens of Semiramida. Nowadays a hanging
garden is not wonder at all: many gardens are located on the roofs or special pillars.
Nevertheless, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon remain one of the most beautiful
wonders in history.
