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 cities.

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.

“Great Rail Journeys were faultless throughout, however, on the journey from Brussels to Austria the German railway system was abysmal. Both legs of the trip (Brussels to Cologne, and then Cologne to Munich ) were plagued with delays and two major engine failure on the locomotive. When we arrived in Austria everything was brilliant, great hotel, excellent food, friendly staff and a well organised and enjoyable itinerary. The GRJ tour manager Steven was amazing,

“Out of all our tours with Great Rail the company of our fellow travellers was the best we have encountered. A great group of people and many friends made. For the first time in eight tours we have met up with someone we have travelled with before.
