Straight from the overactive imaginations of several Minecraft builders, many of these creations will blow your mind.
A view from the harbour
This awesome view is from the “City Building Project” which is a thoroughly impressive cityscape created in Minecraft that could easily be mistaken for the real thing when viewed at a glance.
Another city-building project that, when viewed from above, reminds us of somewhat of SimCity. the close-up views of this creation defy belief though.
A bird’s eye view
Even a close-up, bird’s eye view of this Minecraft city is no less impressive. From tiny houses to towering landmarks, this creation has it all.
Another city from fantasy lore, The Lord of the Rings’ Minas Tirith, capital of Gondor, is recreated faithfully according to the version that appeared in Peter Jackson’s stunning films. It’s absolutely massive, as you’d imagine.

Another classic design by Maruku 2012, inspired by Game of Thrones. This one shows a brilliantly detailed world inspired by George RR Martin and crafted in Minecraft.
Star Trek geeks will love this one. JackethSP created the USS Enterprise in Minecraft. It’s one of many Star Trek creations over at Planet minecraftbut this one caught our eye merely for its magnificence.

Another Minecrafter with some serious talent. This impressive city view was incredibly crafted within Minecraft and yet at a glance could easily be mistaken for a real city.

It might look too good to be true, but this Cyberpunk 2077 inspired Minecraft map might be the closest you can get to the technological future of Night City without playing the shooter.
At working airport
Any sizeable city needs an airport, and this super-accurate example is an impressive one, at that. With a fleet of planes and even a detailed parking lot, it’s a great recreation.
A fair bit of effort must have gone into making this one if nothing else.
Although some might argue that this plane is nowhere near decimated enough to have really crashed in this forest, we just appreciate the detail. A fair bit of effort must have gone into making this one if nothing else.
The Winter Palace
This Minecrafter went about creating a Palace fit for royalty. A magnificent and intricate building with minute detail and an imposing presence too.
A digital Roman empire
Another ancient civilization lovingly created in Minecraft. This time Roman-like architecture has been wonderfully built by the seaside.
Moving from ancient Rome to ancient Greece takes us to Athens’ Acropolis, one of the wonders of the ancient world for good reason. It’s a stunning site, and almost as impressive in this Minecraft map as it is in reality.
King Kong vs T-Rex
Yup. That’s T-Rex vs King Kong. Awesome, right? Massive monsters battling it out on a Minecraft backdrop. This monster creation was actually crafted way back in 2012 by Frostbytes | Micko and before creative mode was released.
We’re not sure this space shuttle would make it through Earth’s atmosphere. But we do like the idea of being able to build your own rocket.

It seems that Minecrafters are obsessed with re-creating real-life locations with intricate and convincing detail. This one seemingly shows Chicago from above. Amazing.
Another such faithful recreation comes in the form of Anfield, the historic home stadium of football’s current world champions Liverpool FC, complete with the recently-added new Main Stand. It’s a timeless ground that’s just as recognizable in block form.
If ancient-themed Minecraft creations are more your thing then this one of Babylon might well be appealing.
Crafted back in 2013, it features all manner of magnificent towers and structures from the lost city.
This magnificent beast is a testament to the dedication and patience of Minecraft creators. As this faithful recreation of the Battlestar Galactica flagship apparently took five million blocks to create and, as you can imagine, many many hours as well.

Glorious views ahead.

Can’t get yourself a Nintendo Switch due to supply and demand problems? Why not build your own to console yourself? That’s what Ayvocado did with this nifty creation of a house inspired by a Switch.

The Dreamworks Logo
Mindjito took the time to magically recreate the Dreamworks logo with a small number of impressive buildings lovingly crafted inside a crescent moon.
A little houseboat
Ok, so it might not be as impressive in terms of size, but that doesn’t mean this creation of a tiny houseboat is any less awesome. Sure building a house in Minecraft is fun, but building one of water is beyond the norm.
If you’d like to replicate it yourself, you can see the tutorial here.
Custom realistic maps
Not your average Minecraft creation, this massive custom landscape was created by PlanetMinecraft user qwryzu and apparently took two months’ worth of work, along with years of practice and no doubt a lot of attention to detail and patience.
It consists of four large continents and some seriously impressive views.
