    So what benefit, gamewise, would this funky, modern pop art gimmick have? :p

    Well, I wouldn't go as far as calling it a wonder, since there's a lot of negativity around it's construction and continued existence, but

    I'd say it IS the visual and touristic trademark of our city, so:

    Montreal's 1976 Olympic Stadium. During the games, it could house over 100,000 spectators

    Well I think it's pretty obvious.

    - Can only be built in a city size 6 or smaller
    - Provides +0.25 to culture per turn
    - Citizens of the city now use the phrase "I'll meet you at the balls"

    Let me guess. It's the result of old student prank that just kind of stayed there.

    No, I was wrong. A social activist visual artist. The two tend to blur esthetically sometimes.

    Here is the local wonder where I'm at, for at least two semesters out of the year. Can't tell you where it is, or I would have to obliviate you:




    Effects:
    - Can only be built on a Mountain tile next to Stonehenge.
    - Upon completing Hogwarts, you first realize that the barbarian camps are who in fact have been running the game all along.
    - New Government type "Magic Ministry". All wildcard slots.
    - Unlocks Great Person type "Wizards". They have brooms, which let them fly onto Mountain tiles.
    - Awards defensive bonuses as if a fort were in that hex.
    - Completes the Eureka for Flight.

    My place is quite young industrial city with almost no remarkable sites. There are/were two (one of them is destroyed by city architect) my favourites buildings: Oskar Schoen Palace from 20th century (for some time city court):
    oskar_schoen_palace.JPG
    and destroyed power plant (do not check google how it looks now, please):
    electric_power_plant.JPG
    There is also castle from XV or XVIth century, and another palace... But I choose Power Plant: can only be built on plains, any nearby coal mine give: +2 population, +1 amenity.

    I'm somewhere between Stonehenge and Oxford University. An alternative would be this one:



    Roman Baths
    - Requires Aqueduct. Must be built next to a geothermal fissure.
    - Gives free Amenities for nearby cities and Tourism once Sanitation is unlocked.
    - Units within one tile heal 100% per turn.

    I suppose, you also have to fight off a boss GDR unit at the end of each era? A bit way too OP otherwise ;)

    Since when do architects DESTROY landmark buildings? There must be a hell of a story behind that...

    I'm in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Loads of possibilities:
    Royal Palace on Dam Square (but is already used as dutch palace in game though):
    Maybe the Rijksmuseum on Museum Square:
    Lots of tourist go to the Red Light district though on the canals and the coffeeshops:
    But I doubt those get a wonder LOL.
    More serious ones would be the Anne Frankhouse or the Rembrandt house.

    I’m pretty sure Firaxis’ artists used the modern reconstructed baths in Bath as inspiration for the unique district in the game.

    With the statues standing sentinel around an open pool, it resembles Bath more than a classical Roman bath complex such as those of Caracalla or Zeuxippus, or even a reconstruction should of what Aquae Sulis would have looked like.

    The sentinel statues are supposed to guard the nude bathers from Celtic raiders who weren't wearing MUCH more... :p

    My local one would be Tower Bridge, but personally I'd prefer the four tower replica in Suzhou:

    Not the most attrective sight, but, definetely, very meaningful. It is a lasting reminder to humanity of possible outcomes if humans interfere in nature.

    The Underground City of Montreal. Largest underground transit system of the world, this thing has 32 kilometers of roads connecting many parts of Montreal, mainly downtown.

    Cold temperatures and heavy snow from winter season is a big reason of this construction. You can litterally go almost anywhere without going outside a single time. It's quite fun it's like a city inside a city.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underground_City,_Montreal

    Carte Montreal Souterrain - Underground City Map - Inside.png

    The Underground city(Industrial era Wonder)

    +3 housing
    +5 gold
    +20% tourism in city built
    (suggestions?)
