The project was carried out in three stages. At the first stage, the Russians sent their versions of the contenders for the title of “Miracle of Russia”to the organizers with the help of mail, Internet services and SMS. On the basis of these proposals, the organizers approved the final list of hundreds of wonders of Russia-the TOP 100. At the second stage, by voting on the Internet and by SMS, the finalists of the competition were determined-the TOP 21. At the third stage, the top 7 attractions of Russia-seven wonders of Russia according to the magazine “world Pathfinder” — were chosen by voting.

7 wonders of Russia according to the magazine “world Ranger” on the map of the country
It is surprising that the final lists of the two projects “7 wonders of Russia”, held almost simultaneously, are radically different! In the “official list” most of the wonders of Russia (4 of 7) — natural objects, and in the list of the magazine “world tracker” all the wonders of Russia-historical monuments. St. Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow (the miracle of Russia from the “official” list) is marked only on the eighth position in the TOP 21 of the magazine “world tracker”. Another miracle of the “official” list — Mamayev Kurgan and the monument “Motherland” – only on the 14th place in the list of the magazine “world Ranger”. However, both lists include interesting sights of our country, which can undoubtedly be called the wonders of Russia.
