Currently UNESCO has a list of over 1000 World Heritage Sites. The organization catalogues sites of outstanding cultural, historical and natural importance in order to preserve and celebrate our global heritage. Iconic UNESCO landmarks include the Taj Mahal, the Moaï of Easter Island and the Italian city of Florence to name but a few. However there are quite a number of places that surprisingly haven't made the cut. We've compiled a list of 10 incredible sites that definitely deserve the UNESCO World Heritage status.
Berlin Wall Memorial and East Side Gallery - Germany
The memorial site for the Berlin Wall is incredibly poignant as it both serves as a reminder of the conflict and division of the past and looks towards a more positive future. In addition, the East Side Gallery which is the longest open-air gallery in the world is symbolic of international freedom of expression. If you ask us, what these two sites stand for as well as what they commemorate should make them worthy of UNESCO World Heritage status.
