TOP 10 UNESCO SITES IN EUROPE

FAVOURITE SITES

PETRA, JORDAN

The ancient city of Petra is not only a UNESCO site, but also one of the New 7 Wonders of the World! It is well deserved (unlike some of the other wonders). This ancient city is way larger than the iconic treasury, and it can be fun for kids.

GREAT ZIMBABWE, ZIMBABWE

Trying to get off the grid? The largest ancient structure in sub-Saharan Africa Great Zimbabwe is all about hidden treasures, gold, an ancient civilization and racist archaeologists. Zimbabwe is even named after it.

VISBY, SWEDEN

A  real huge medieval city wall, its own mild climate, the scene of the Battle of Visby between the Danes and the Swedes, a Hanseatic town and a Medieval week. What not to like about the Swedish city of Visby on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea.
