UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Croatia encompasses a uniques mix of history, nature and culture, which have had a significant and unmistakable impact on its cities and countryside. It is no wonder that so many of these cultural sites in Croatia have been put under the protection of UNESCO. An international organization based in Paris, UNESCO made promoting education, science, culture, communication and information an important task. The World Heritage organization gives its title to unique, historical sites whose special position, function, or condition makes them worthy of preservation for future generations. The path taken to receive a world heritage title is long and  rocky. The scattered cultural and natural moments found all over the world must be nominated by UNESCO recognized countries and then a detailed examination follows. Currently (July 2015), there are 1031 sites listed, from which 7 are in Croatia.
