When comparing our childhood with today, we can see how much things have changed. We do not refer only to our body or even specific aspects of our life, but mainly to our environment and the world in which we live.

From places that we used to go to that no longer exist to our beloved places of origin, things can seem totally different from the way we remember them from childhood.

If there was a machine that could take us back in time so we could visit all those places that seemed so familiar to us at the time, we would probably get lost as foreigners there.

And if in 10, 20 or 30 years the world can change so much, imagine how much things can change in another 100 years? That’s why we collected 20 photos of iconic cities and landmarks so you can see how much they’ve changed.
