List of newly inscribed World Heritage Sites 2021

World Heritage Committee has inscribed 34 new property sites during the current 44th session. The nomination list was submitted in 2020 but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new properties include 29 cultural and five natural sites.

The session was held online and chaired by China from Fuzhou. The current session’s inscriptions bring the total number of sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage to 1154.

The World Heritage Committee also inscribed the transnational property of the Frontiers of the Roman Empire – The Danube Limes (Western Segment). 

The property covers 600km of the whole Roman Empire’s Danube frontier. It formed part of the much large frontier of the Roman Empire that encircled the Mediterranean Sea. The Danube Limes (Western Segment) reflects the specificities of this part of the Roman Frontier through the selection of sites that represent key elements from the road, legionary fortresses, and their associated settlements to small forts and temporary camps, and the way these structures relate to local topography.
