Created by The Danish Geodata Agency back in 2014, this server consisted of more than 4000 billion blocks and 1TB of data. It was built using the agencies 3D elevation model and was intended to be used as a teaching tool of some kind. However, due to it being a 1:1 scale replica of the whole of Denmark, the server soon caught some traction and gained 200,000 downloads at release. Unfortunately it's popularity led to it's downfall when some player discovered that TNT could be used, resulting in the destruction of most of the map. It has since banned TNT and encouraged the citizens of the country to contribute to the server to make it feel more authentically Denmark.

The Colosseum is most likely the first thing that comes to mind when you hear someone mention Rome. Its vast size is enough to take someone's breath away, even in it's decaying state.

Minecraft servers have emerged, showcasing the Colosseum restored to its original state when it was initially constructed. This offers a unique opportunity for people who aspire to explore it.
The Entire Earth
Build The Earth is one of, if not THE biggest project currently on Minecraft. Thanks to around 7000 members (and counting), they aim to construct the entire earth on a 1:1 scale. As of the time of writing, there are currently 4884 ongoing projects amounting to 7107 square meters being built on. With one block equal to 1 meter, they have a long way to go and are always on the hunt for new builders to join the project.
