LEGO versions of famous monuments recreate some of the most beautiful buildings in the world along with some of the top natural wonders. These creations, painstakingly crafted brick by brick, are nearly impressive as the real things, just much, much smaller.

Comprised of thousands of bricks, some LEGO experts spend ridiculous amounts of hours recreating some of the world's top buildings and natural wonders. That is the case for many of these, such as LEGO Stonehenge, the LEGO Grand Canyon and the LEGO Great Wall of China. These LEGO master builders craft these monuments down to the tiniest detail to make their creations perfect.

For those who don't have the time, patience or skill to build the likes of the Leaning Tower of Pisa or Temple of Artemis in LEGO bricks, LEGO Architecture Products make recreating these masterpieces a snap. The company has several series of product sets designed to recreate some of the top monuments around the world, such as the Architect Series, which features the Guggenheim Museum, and the Landmark Series, featuring The White House, Eiffel Tower and Rockefeller Center, all in LEGO form.

So if you've always wanted to visit these awesome monuments but a stamp on your passport isn't in the cards, get your fix by recreating one of these super-cool LEGO monuments at home.
