BULGARIA ELECTED TO UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE COMMITTEE

Sofia - At its 23rd Session which is taking place in Paris, November 24 to 26, the General Assembly of States Parties to the UNESCO World Heritage Convention elected Bulgaria member of the prestigious 21-country World Heritage Committee, the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry said in a press release on Thursday. "Bulgaria's election acknowledges the country's active work under UNESCO's programmes in the sphere of world cultural and natural heritage. It also comes as a result of the efforts to nominate the country and enlist support for the nomination, most of the credit for which goes to the Bulgarian National Commission for UNESCO," the Ministry said. Ten Bulgarian properties are inscribed on the World Heritage List: - seven cultural sites: the Ancient City of Nessebar (1983), the Boyana Church (1979), the Madara Rider (1979), the Rila Monastery (1983), the Rock-Hewn Churches of Ivanovo (1979), the Thracian Tomb of Kazanlak (1979), and the Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari (1985); - three natural sites: the Srebarna Nature Reserve (1983), the Pirin National Park (1983, 2010), and the Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe (2007, 2011, 2017, 2021). The National Commission for UNESCO is planning a series of events marking the 50th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention in 2022, the press release said. (ICE SOFIA)
