There are even more amazing World Heritage Sites for travellers to add to their bucket-lift after Unesco added a string of new sites to the register last week.
At a meeting of the World Heritage Committee in Krakow, Poland, Unesco decided to add 17 new cultural sites, three natural sites, and to change the boundaries of five existing sites. Unesco’s role is to identify and protect important cultural and natural sites around the world that have been deemed to have outstanding value to humanity. This year’s additions include the walled city of Ahmedabad in India, the modernist city of Asmara in Eritrea, and Kujataa, asub-arctic farming landscape in Greenland.
