Tauric Chersonese museum reserve located in the annexed Crimea was included in the list of the most dangerous tourist attractions according to UNESCO, The Telegraph reports.
A total of 66 sites (almost every 20th culture monument) were designated as the most dangerous tourist destinations on UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites list. In particular, the Tauric Chersonese museum reserve was designated as a Ukrainian cultural site, as the organization does not recognize the annexation of Crimea by Russia.
The UNESCO’s “black” list also includes Gegard Monastery in Georgia, St. Catherine's Monastery and the Valley of the Whales in Egypt, Hamiguitan mountain reserve in the Philippines, Diyarbakır Fortress and Hevsel Gardens Cultural Landscape in Turkey and many others. Just a part of dangerous tourist attractions is located in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Tunisia.
