The UNESCO sites of Europe
Considered to be culturally or naturally important,
UNESCO-listed sites boast international interest and are protected
by the heritage body. At Great Rail Journeys, many of our tours
visit these prestigious sites, allowing you the opportunity to
explore some of the world's greatest monuments, landscapes and
Why not visit the stunning Plitvice Lakes on our delightful tour
of Slovenia, Croatia & Montenegro? One of the very first
natural World Heritage sites to be declared by UNESCO, the sixteen
Plitvice Lakes are connected by an incredible series of waterfalls
and set in a beautiful 116 square-mile National Park.
Alternatively, you could enjoy a visit to the picturesque
UNESCO-listed village of Hallstatt on our tour of the Austrian Lake
District, or visit two World Heritage Old Towns and the stunning
listed city of St Petersburg on our Baltic Explorer holiday.
Further afield, the spectacular city temples of Angkor Wat and
Angkor Thom await, and our visit to them is a highlight of our tour
of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong Delta. These proud monuments
of Cambodian culture are internationally-acclaimed sites of
religious and cultural importance, and superb examples of preserved
ancient architecture. With many tours to incredible UNESCO World
Heritage sites such as these, you can experience the world's
treasures on your Great Rail Journeys holiday.
