This looks very nice. A couple of point from my testing:

* The country list would be improved with more descriptive text (the code for England will not be obvious to most people)
* Loading the whole country is very slow - at least 5 minutes for all of the England buildings to be shown! Can the system load entries based on the current viewed area?

* It would be good to have some indication of loading progress and particularly when loading has finished. 

* Some monuments are missing, including ones that are correctly in the English Wikipedia lists and have images. Where does the data come from, and how is the image determined?

I hope that helps. Very good work!
