I agree. If it was a battle between The Roman Colisseaum, and The Parthenon, even then I would think about which one I would pick. So, the replica in Pela is not a match for the Parthenon, in my humble opinion.salvius said:I'd switch 1 and 2 -- #2 is one of the most architecturally important structures of all times, and countless architectural schools of thought robbed its basic ideas. #1 is totally cool, but is a replica of something much grander and more important.
I find that comment extemely rude. We, as a forum, decided that Greece can participate in the contest, and that's the end of it.AstroBoy said:The Parthenon doesnt belong in this poll so perhaps iMariah should go and learn a bit about geography?
Before you gallivant around and tell me to check on the facts, I would advise you to do the same.AstroBoy said:The Arena in Pula is NOT a replica. The romans built colloseums in a number of places and this one is close to 2000 years old. This one is in better condition than the one in Rome. Another one that survived is in northern Africa, while others sadly were pulled apart for re-use of building materials.
Salvius should go and check his facts before misleading people. Secondly, since when is Greece a part of Eastern Europe? Its southern Europe from what I was taught. The Parthenon doesnt belong in this poll so perhaps iMariah should go and learn a bit about geography?
