About this project
Wondermondo informs you about the most unusual and interesting wonders of the world.
This is an unusual, rare website because:
- Facts and science matter here. There are many places around the world with unusual, even unbelievable stories and properties: Wondermondo tries its best to separate legends and facts.
- Stories are told in a simple, accessible way because the wonders of the Earth deserve to be appreciated and cherished by the most diverse people all around the world. These wonders tell to us: our world is gorgeous and we – people – are part of it with our own wonderful creations.
The creation of Wondermondo started in December 2009 and currently here is information about more than 11 000 wonders of the world and the list is growing.
The website has been created by Gatis Pāvils, M.Sc. in Environment Administration. For decades I have traveled and seen thousands of wonders in my home country – Latvia – as well as in many other countries.
I am a proud father of four children. In my daily life am working as a business strategist: developing innovative future businesses and factories.
Currently, the wonders of the world in Wondermondo are divided into 124 categories and four main realms: geology, biology, archaeology, and architecture.
Many wonders are linked to a certain place. The aim of Wondermondo is to list and describe such places all around our planet. Thus, the name “wonder” on this website means a surprising place on our planet.
Landmarks in the Wondermondo site have a rating from 0 (least wondrous) to 100 (most wondrous). This rating is calculated with a special formula, using the data of four criteria.
