At the meeting of the National Commission for UNESCO, the final document by which Milančev waterfall with a complex of waterfalls located in Una National Park, will be listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List was accepted.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites were created in 1978 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). They began designating important sites around the globe as part of an effort to preserve the world’s cultural and natural heritage.
To be selected, a World Heritage Site must be an already classified landmark, unique in some respect as a geographically and historically identifiable place having special cultural or physical significance (such as an ancient ruin or historical structure, building, city, complex, desert, forest, island, lake, monument, mountain, or wilderness area. It may signify a remarkable accomplishment of humanity, and serve as evidence of our intellectual history on the planet.
In the forthcoming phase and after harmonization with the institutions of the Republic of Croatia, documentation for inclusion in the World Heritage List will be prepared.
The registration process started in July 2017 when the National Commission for UNESCO unanimously accepted the initiative.
