Coliseum, Rome, Italy
A piece of the Digital Land next to the Coliseum – the most famous ruins of Rome. This unique building was built back in the 1st century and became the most grandiose amphitheater of the Roman Empire. It was erected on the bottom of a drained lake to a height of 50 meters. It easily accommodated about 50 thousand people, and up to 3 thousand gladiators could fight on its arena. Apart from the gladiatorial fights, sea battles were organized in the Coliseum. For this purpose, a wooden floor was removed from the arena and the basement was flooded with water from a nearby aqueduct. Even large galleys took part in such battles. The scope of the engineering thought of the ancient Romans was so amazing that the Coliseum was recognized as one of the 7 new Wonders of the World.
And although today the building is half destroyed, it still makes a lasting impression and with dignity holds the title of the official symbol of Rome. Millions of tourists come to see it, and every now and then the legendary arena hosts the world known celebrities – Ray Charles, Paul McCartney, Elton John...
Last year, about 10 million foreign tourists visited Rome, which is a home for 2.9 million local people.
The Coliseum is Rome's most visited attraction. Annually, over 4 million tourists come to see this miracle, which is contemporary with Jesus Christ.
