Nominated sites foр the World Cultural Heritage list

The adding of a cultural monument or a natural site in the World Heritage List goes through several phases. Each country that has signed the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage creates a list of nominated sites. The World Heritage Committee considers the nominations, for unlimited period, at meetings once per year. At present, the Bulgarian State has included 16 sites on its list of nominations. Ten of them are monuments of culture:
1. Bishop's Basilica and Late-Antique Mosaics of Philippopolis, Roman Province of Thrace (nominated on 29.01.2018);
