The World's Must-See Places takes you on a tour of over 100 of the world's greatest sights. In true DK Eyewitness Travel Guide style, each page of the book will show you what other books only tell you, with unique 3-D cutaway artworks that let you look inside each building as if you were there.
Each featured sight has been selected for its uniqueness, or its historical or architectural importance, and many are included on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites. Situated across the five continents, the sights include iconic landmarks, such as Chartres Cathedral and Sydney Opera House, and lesser-known gems, including the Kairouan Mosque in Tunisia and the Toshu-gu Shrine in Japan.
In addition to engaging text that describes each sight, sidebars and text panels cover topics such as the architectural style of the building, the architect and his works, or historic events or people that shaped the building as we know it today.
This book will not only inspire readers to visit some, if not all, of the featured sights, but will also appeal to armchair travelers who prefer to view the sights from the comfort of their own home.
