Petteri Profile

I've been interested in UNESCO World Heritage sites from 2006 onwards. My work contains lots of travel, but I also spend most of holidays traveling somewhere. While I do not select my destinations based on world heritage considerations, I try to visit new world heritage sites whenever possible.

Primeval Beech Forests Petteri

The "easiest" way to see the inscribed area within Vihorlat is to hike up to Sninsky kamen, which is just within the core area, and which offers panoramic views of the overall protected area within Vihorlat. The hike up to Sninsky Kamen starts from Morske Oko, which in turn can be reached by driving to the end of the road from Remetske Hamre (around 20km from Michalovce). Morske Oko seems to be a somewhat popular tourist location (at least for locals) as the site features a car park, signposted trail markers, and there also were several people strolling around the lake. The trail up to Sninsky Kamen, on the other hand, is less popular even if being relatively easy (with the exception of some missing trail markers). In fact, the main challenge is to reach Vihorlat in the first place as the park is located closer to Ukrainian border (only Ukrainian mobile network provider was occasionally within range inside the park) than any major Slovakian city.

Most Impressive: too long to list, pretty much every natural site (but especially Iguacu and Los Glaciares), some of the more remote sites where getting there is part of the fun (e.g., Wadi Al-Hitan or Australian Mammal Fossil Sites) and finally some of the more impressive monuments in the world (e.g., Mezquita, Petra, Alhambra and Angkor)

Proposal New WHS: Castles of Ludwig II in Bavaria
