We give an explicit estimate of the fractal dimension of the global attractor to the wave equation with nolinear damping. The nonlinearities are smooth functions of certain polynomial growth. As a by-product we estimate the dimension of the exponential attractor for the time $\tau$ solution operator provided that $\tau$ is sufficiently large. The main tool used in the proof is the so-called method of the trajectories.
