Serial Transnational Extension of Moravian Church Settlement of Christiansfeld (Denmark)
- Bethlehem (United States)
- Hernnhut (Germany)
- Gracehill (Northern Ireland)


The goal is 2024 for a final decision, but the National Park Service rep states "I can't make any promises". Based on this recently made video, you can feel the excitement amongst the stakeholders. Representatives from the other proposed serial sites were actually visiting Bethlehem just recently.

From this possible serial transnational site, I have been only to Herrnhut in 2004. Not mentioning my Gracehill near-miss in 2018, when I traveled to Glens of Antrim from Belfast via Ballymena, where I spent around 3 hours waiting for the bus connection to Cushendun having no idea about the potential WHS material nearby!
What is very interesting that the cradle of Moravian Brethren in Moravia (now part of Czechia) https://www.moravian.cz/Default_EN.aspx together with the sites related to their last bishop John Amos Comenius in Fulnek, Czechia, is not the part of the nomination and has no chance to be included in my opinion.

Isla de Flores Cultural Landscape (Uruguay)

Looks like the next official nomination from Uruguay. The exact date is unclear, but 2024 seems more likely than 2023.

"The idea is to work on a two-year candidacy."
