Wonders are remarkable improvements that can only be built once. Wonders are urban improvements, built by a worker units on valid map tile inside the borders of a city at the appropriate Cultural level. Although constructing a wonder cost large amount of resources and takes longer much than other improvements, they also grant local bonus to the city and powerful nation-wide bonuses when completed. Completing a wonder also grants 2 Victory points to the nation and a Legitimacy boost to the leader. When a nation begins building a wonder, all other nations will be notified (even if that nation hadn't been met) and will not be able to build the same wonder for the rest of the game.
