World Heritage Sites

 

Description

The bestseller “World Heritage” is now also available as an app for the iPhone and iPod touch!

All 911 cultural and natural monuments on Earth – according to the UNESCO Convention.

The pyramids in Ancient Egypt, the Acropolis in Athens, the Serengeti in Tanzania, the Grand Canyon in the United States – they all have one thing in common: They are unique cultural and natural heritage sites that have been taken under the protection of UNESCO. In 1972 the Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage was adopted with the purpose of compiling a list of objects that are of extraordinary and universal significance und whose conservation is the responsibility of all humankind. In the face of the threat to unique ecosystems and cultural sites this has become more imperative than ever. All the cultural and natural sites that have so far been declared as being part of the world heritage are presented here in text and pictures. Currently, UNESCO’s list of world heritage monuments lists 911 cultural and natural sites located in 148 countries. Of these, 689 are cultural heritage and 176 natural heritage sites, while 25 sites are listed under both categories.
