Undergoing Restoration or Repair
WHS or significant parts thereof currently undergoing restoration or repair that affect the visitor experience. Estimated end date should be given.
|Bryggen||The Finnegård, a component of the core zone and seat of the Hanseatic Museum, is being "pulled up from the ground" where it has slowly sunk (so I have been told) and will stay closed for this major restoration until 2025 at least.|
|Daphni, Hosios Loukas and Nea Moni of Chios||Monastery of Daphni (completion date unknown, ongoing for many years)|
|Gelati Monastery||The ancient frescoes in the Gelati Monastery have been damaged by rainwater due to improper restoration of the roof, the UNESCO has claimed. The UNESCO has notified Georgian authorities that the roof should be repaired not later than February 2022, since its absence could lead to further damage to the temple.|
|Istanbul||Chora church (only the Narthices are open)|
|Paris, Banks of the Seine||The Notre-Dame cathedral will undergo restoration work more than two years after a blaze ravaged the heritage landmark in 2019. It remains on course to reopen in 2024. The focus until September 2021 had been on making the cathedral safe before restoration work could begin.|
|Selimiye Mosque||Restoration work began in 2021 and is scheduled to be completed in 2025. During the restoration, the mosque will be open for worship and visit.|
|Tombs of Buganda Kings||The repair after the 2010 fire of the main thatched structure, that houses the tombs of the 4 former kings, is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.|
|Westminster||Palace of Westminster - future restoration (that may take up to 6 years)|
