What I infer from this article is that the Paseo del Prado and Parque del Retiro, in Madrid, are going to be presented next year, up for 2020's WHC: https://elpais.com/cultura/2018/04/11/actualidad/1523451827_577987.html

Paseo del Prado and Parque del Retiro, in Madrid, are going to be presented next year, up for 2020's WHC

Interesting to look at the length of time involved nowadays in developing a nomination and bringing it to a conclusion (unless you are Palestine of course!). Assuming it gets inscribed in 2020 it will have been around 7 years to move from conception to inception - not, I suspect, a bad timescale nowadays. I wonder how much it will have cost?
The earliest mention of this I can find goes back to Nov 2013 when the Madrid City council decided to include a budget for the project in its 2014 plans - http://www.elmundo.es/madrid/2013/11/07/527b77b90ab74060538b456a.html
The desire to increase tourist revenues in Madrid which were on a downward trend seems to have been a major "driver" - https://www.madridiario.es/noticia/405636/distritos/el-ayuntamiento-quiere-convertir- el-paseo-del-prado-en-patrimonio-de-la-humanidad.html
The article makes it clear that the idea goes back even earlier and it would appear to have emerged partly from a plan from 2011 to develop the area as an "Artistic Hub" https://www.madridiario.es/noticia/199738

It got added to Spain's T List in Jan 2015 . Subsequent years will have been filled preparing the documentation and determining when to fit it in among all the other Spanish contenders, bearing in mind the complexities of sharing out the annual "slots" among the Provinces. The lack of the Spanish Capital's presence on the List in contrast to most other capitals of Europe is obviously playing a part even though it wasn't mentioned in the early reasons.
So - of my "3 Ps" being reasons for nominating a site on the List we have "Profit" and "Pride" heavily represented. the 3rd - "Preservation" doesn't really play much part as this was pretty well guaranteed anyway!

Regarding the issue of "missing European Capitals" - we discussed this way back in 2010. The situation then was
" Not on T List - Reykjavik, Oslo, Helsinki, Madrid, Podgorica, Belgrade, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Monaco, Vaduz, Chisinau, Bucharest, Bratislava, Tirana, Yerevan and Nicosia
T List only - Amsterdam, Dublin, Copenhagen, Sarajevo, Minsk, Tblisi"

(I think we decicded that Suomenlinna "counted" as Helsinki)
Only Amsterdam has succeeded to date and Madrid of course to come.
Of the others
Ljubljana is "on track" with "The timeless, humanistic architecture of Jože Plečnik" for 2019
Dublin doesn't seem to be active.
Monaco could be regarded as having got in on the act from its part within "Space Maritime-Mercantour" but whether any part is within the boundaries of the "Capital" Monte Carlo I don't know
Minsk may be active - http://eng.belta.by/society/view/belarus-considers-nomination-of-minsk-independence-a venue-for-unesco-heritage-list-98677-2017
Copenhagen has been on Denmark's T List in the form of Amalienborg since 1993 but I can find no evidence on the Web of anything happening - what's the problem? Has it missed the boat? If so is Denmark not ready to accept this and remove it from the T List? I don't think that the Jaegersborg element of Parforce Hunting can really be considered to be "in" Copenhagen!
Sarajevo is also absent from any web comment about nomination activity - one might have thought that UNESCO etc would have been keen on it.
Tblisi had been referred as long ago as 2001 but, again, lacks any recent indication of being resurrected. Indeed this article would seem to show that Georgia's priorities lie elsewhere - http://agenda.ge/news/95779/eng
Bratislava in fact already had (since 2002) the Chatam Sofer Memorial on its T List. no activity has been reported.
Belgrade Was added to Serbia's T List in 2015 for its 2 elements of the Roman Limes and can be expected to progress as that much larger project moves forward.

Bratislava also heavily features on Natural and cultural landscape of Danube region.

Definitely, Solivagant. In the article it is very clear that those are the biggest drivers behind this future nomination, but pride is definitely number 1 as it also shows some sense of rivalry towards Barcelona.
Personally, and as a Latin American, I have always found bizarre that there is no WHS within Madrid, and this particular one is the most obvious choice. And from the article it is obvious that there, they are fully conscious about this -somewhat embarrasing, as it seems- fact.

But Helsinki has a WHS - Suomenlinna is one of the districts of the city of Helsinki.

Yes - the original quote was the exact one from 2010 but see next line above -

The Marquesas Islands (France)

"In the best case, the file could be presented to Unesco as early as 2019." This indicates to me a planned file submission by the Feb. 2019 deadline for 2020, no?

The Glorious Kakatiya Temples and Gateways –Rudreshwara (Ramappa) Temple (India)

Because of operational guidelines, Ramappa Temple has been moved to 2020.

Based on previous experience (Mumbai), this is not a guarantee of a priority nomination.

Potential Nominations from India:
The Glorious Kakatiya Temples and Gateways –Rudreshwara (Ramappa) Temple (India)
River Island of Majuli in midstream of Brahmaputra River in Assam (India)

Potential Nominations from Iran:
Trans-Iranian Railway (Iran)
