Russia's seven wonders announced

The competition to become one of Russia's seven wonders is over, and the results have been announced in Red Square in Moscow.

The list includes the man-made masterpieces of St.Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, Peterhof in St.Petersburg and the Motherland Statue on the Tumulus of Mamai in Volgograd.

In addition it has the natural marvels Mount Elbrus, Lake Baikal, the Valley of Geysers and the Stone Idols in the Republic of Komi.

The seven wonders were chosen by Internet voting from a list of 49 nominees.

The project was launched in October 2007 and was aimed at popularising Russia's cultural and natural landmarks.
