04. National Monument of Scotland
The National Monument of Scotland is in Edinburgh. This monument was originally hoped as a symbol of pride for Scotland but now it is referred to as “Scotland’s shame” being incomplete. The monument was intended to be a memorial for the Scottish soldiers and sailors who died in the Napoleonic Wars but never came into full existence. The monument’s construction was started in 1824 but never finished. A completed version of the National Monument would have resembled the Parthenon in Athens, but the current structure only features 12 pillars.
