Link: UNESCO World Heritage - Silk

In June 2014 UNESCO's World Heritage Committee announced the new inscriptions for the World Heritage List. This year 26 new sites made it into the list, making the current number of World Heritage Sites 1007, with two sites delisted.

  • Search through the current World Heritage Sites, look at their geographical distribution, size, and year of inscription in the list.
  • Discover the locations that are in danger, and the most common threats that menace their conservation.
  • Browse through all the sites that are part of each State's tentative lists but didn't make it to a World Heritage status yet.
  • Read overviews for each UNESCO Member State...
