World’s most beautiful UNESCO heritage sites.

 

UNESCO heritage project

World Heritage Sites are cultural and/or natural sites considered to be of ‘Outstanding Universal Value’, which have been inscribed on the World Heritage List by the World Heritage Committee.

 These places or buildings are thought to:

 

 have special importance for everyone

 

represent unique, or the most significant or best, examples of the world’s cultural and/or natural heritage

Outstanding Universal Value is considered to transcend national boundaries and to be of importance for future generations.

 World Heritage status is a high accolade that brings with it responsibilities and international scrutiny.

 

Mission

Encourage countries to sign the World Heritage Convention and to ensure the protection of their natural and cultural heritage;

 Encourage States Parties to the Convention to nominate sites within their national territory for inclusion on the World Heritage List;

 

 Encourage States Parties to establish management plans and set up reporting systems on the state of conservation of their World Heritage sites;

 

 Help States Parties safeguard World Heritage properties by providing technical assistance and professional training;

 

 Provide emergency assistance for World Heritage sites in immediate danger;

 

 Support States Parties' public awareness-building activities for World Heritage conservation;

 

 Encourage participation of the local population in the preservation of their cultural and natural heritage;

 

 Encourage international cooperation in the conservation of our world's cultural and natural heritage.

Stretching over some 400 square kilometres, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire of the 9th to the 15th centuries, including the largest pre-industrial city in the world. The most famous are the Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple. It remains one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia.

The Athenian Acropolis is the ancient high city of Athens, a prominent plateaued rock perched high above the modern city with commanding views and an amazing array of ancient architecture, mostly from the Classical period of Ancient Greece, the most famous of which is the Parthenon.

Despite being attacked and pillaged by everyone from the Byzantines to the Venetians, the site still stands to provide an important insight into Greek mythology.

3. Bagan, Myanmar

Well, this site has not officially been confirmed by UNESCO yet, but as Myanmar finally opens up to tourism, the importance of protecting its monuments is greater than ever. As the capital city of this first Myanmar Kingdom, this enormous Buddhist complex on the Irrawaddy River contains more than 2,500 intricate monuments dating back to the 10th century.

Due to islands’ far-flung location at the confluence of three ocean currents, the islands attract a diverse array of marine life that has remained unchanged for centuries.

It was one of the first few sites to be listed by UNESCO in the 1970s.

Goreme located among the “fairy chimney” rock formations, is a town in Cappadocia, Turkey. Carved out by erosion, the rocks in the valley provide unique evidence of Byzantine art in the post-Iconoclastic period.
