UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in Slovakia

This world wide organization was established November 16, 1945.

UNESCO’s World Heritage List is only one of its programs. Its main role is to create a list of the world's natural and historical monuments to guarantee their preservation and protection.

Several of our cultural and natural properties were inscribed into the UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Bardejov and Banská Štiavnica's historical centre and its technical monuments, Spiš Castle- the biggest castle in central Europe, Vlkolínec Village with its wooden houses documenting our traditions and culture, wooden churches situated in eastern Slovakia are just examples of our historical monuments inscribed into the List. We would like to mention some natural treasures from the UNESCO List: unique caves lying in Slovak Paradise, Oak Primaeval Forest in North-East Slovakia. On the other hand, there are some treasures waiting to be inscribed into the List: Gothic wooden altar chiseled out by Master Pavol from Levoča, Limes Romanus-an ancient Rome’s border defence system or Tokai vineyards.
