15 European UNESCO Heritage Sites in 15 Instagram pictures

Brief background of UNESCO Heritage Sites The idea of creating an international movement to protect heritage emerged after World War I. The 1972 Convention on Protection of World Cultural and Natural Heritage developed from merging two separate movements: one focusing on preservation of cultural sites, and the other dealing with conservation of nature. Registrations in UNESCO heritage list are not bestowed lightly. There are 1,052 World Heritage Sites located in 165 states. Of these, 814 are cultural, 203 are natural and 35 are mixed properties.
Here are my 15 best Instagram pictures of 15 UNESCO heritage sites I have visited in Europe. Visit my Instagram account to see more.

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

If there is just one reason for visiting Riga, the capital of Latvia, it is the fact that the city has the finest and largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world, with over 800 houses built in this style. More than 438 hectares of the historical Centre of Riga are inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List, recognizing its great collection of outstanding Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) architecture. Janis Krastins, a professor of architecture, said: "In Brussels you pass one or two Art Nouveau buildings when you walk down the street, but here, Art Nouveau is everywhere you look." I am Latvian and sometimes I have a feeling that Latvians are too self critical and reluctant to praise their own country. With this photo essay I would like to make my contribution to advocating the beauty of my beloved Riga. How it all started The Art Nouveau golden age coincided with the city’s rapid economic growth in early 20 century. It was more than 10 years before the disastrous First World War.
