Wojciech Fedoruk Profile

Travelling is my biggest passion. I try to spend every day of my vacation time (unfortunately, limited to 26 days a year) travelling. I travel mostly with my family and sometimes solo. I love going to remote places and always plan visiting as many WH sites as possible. Although sometimes they are not rewarding, in most cases visiting WHS gives me much better understanding of the region I visit.

I find this site very helpful in planning my trips to more difficult WHS and want to share my reviews especially on rarely visited ones.

Recent Reviews Wojciech Fedoruk


Gombak Selangor Quartz Ridge (T) Wojciech Fedoruk

Gombak Selangor Quartz Ridge (T) by Wojciech Fedoruk

The site is located on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur but, based on my high-level check, going there with public transport may be a hassle. I went there with rental car and my GPS  led me to a very strange place with parking for about three cars and teenagers laughing while taking a bath in a nearby river. I thought I got into wrong location, but after a while I found the start of trekking trail just near the parking. Unfortunately the trail was closed until further notice. Despite the warnings I entered but surrendered after 20 minutes - after heavy rains the trail is really destroyed.

Based on the pictures shown on the billboard at the start the trail should be nice, with caves, shaped stones etc. From the distance the ridge is however not spectacular at all, there are tens of better looking ones in Malaysia.

Royal Belum State Park (T) Wojciech Fedoruk

Royal Belum State Park (T) by Wojciech Fedoruk

Belum Park is a large protected area of tropical forest in the northern part of Malaysia. The forest is shared with Thailand that also protects it as a national park, placed on T-list as well. As a transnational proposal, both parks have higher chance for inscription, although the path has not been announced yet (Malaysia placed it on T-list only in 2017).

Bulwarked Fortifications of the "Raia" (Border) (T) Wojciech Fedoruk

Bulwarked Fortifications of the "Raia" (Border)  (T) by Wojciech Fedoruk

This site contains four fortified places on the Spanish-Portuguese border. Most of them were built in XVIth century or after. Out of four location of this proposal, one is already on the main list (Elvas), so if the whole proposal is inscribed in this shape, for most it would be an easy tick. We managed to visit another one – stronghold of Almeida and it was one of our biggest surprises in this marvellous country.

Ensemble of Alvaro Siza's Architecture Works in Portugal (T) Wojciech Fedoruk

Ensemble of Alvaro Siza's Architecture Works in Portugal (T) by Wojciech Fedoruk

Driving the most popular motorway Lisbon-Porto we made a quick detour to see the university campus in Aveiro, especially its library building, placed on Portuguese T-List. The library, according to the description of the proposal, is one of the best examples of Alvaro Siza's architectural style. I am not familiar with modern architecture and I have not heard about Alvaro Siza before, but I liked the library building and the whole campus. In style and atmosphere it is so different from (not so distant) University of Coimbra but if I was a student again, I might consider these two places equally. I am not aware how many buildings of the Aveiro University have been designed by (or in cooperation with) Alvaro Siza, but the library building is similar in style to all other edifices of the campus.

Roman Production Centre of Fish Salting and Conservation in Tróia (T) Wojciech Fedoruk

Roman Production Centre of Fish Salting and Conservation in Tróia (T) by Wojciech Fedoruk

The site is located at the top of Tróia Peninsula and can be reached either by land (around 20-30 km detour from highway Lisbon - Faro) or by ferry from Setubal – ferry terminal is quite near the site, although taking a taxi might be necessary.

The site is a complex of ruins built at the beginning of 1st century AD and occupied until 6th century. It served mainly as a fish-salting production complex but it had many accompanying buildings, such as baths, mausoleum or cemetery.
