Each year the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization meets to carefully approve the latest landmarks to its list. This year, UNESCO has added 29 new sites to its collection of extraordinary places and the ones below make a perfect addition to any travelers bucket list. Now there are currently 1,121 sites of outstanding universal value
According to CNN travel,
The 2019 list includes natural sites, such as Vatnajökull National Park in Iceland; cultural sites, such as the historic city of Sheki in Azerbaijan and the archaeological ruins of Liangzhu City in southeast China; and just one mixed site this year — the Paraty and Ilha Grande in Brazil, which combines natural and cultural elements.One of the more unusual additions was Jodrell Bank Observatory, a site in northwest England that’s home to some of the planet’s leading radio astronomy telescopes. Dating back to 1945, the observatory’s research on cosmic rays, meteors, the moon and astral phenomena are credited with expanding our understanding of the universe.The committee also approved the extension of an existing site in Albania, the Natural and Cultural Heritage of the Ohrid region in North Macedonia.
