At this year's WHC meeting, the borders of several older WHS were clarified for the first time. See URL.
Someone has gone bravely through them, and suggested a number of corrections to existing connections.

For Budapest: The Great Synagogue, the Eiffel Railway Station, St. Stephen's Cathedral are definitely outside the core zone of the WHS. The Gül Baba Tomb is doubtful too, but I let it stay on for the moment (any other sources than the map mentioned in the link above?).

For Dresden: the Altmarkt is outside

And some more corrections:
- Museum Island occupies only half of Spree Insel, so has to be deleted from "Cultural Sites taking up an entire island"
- And the same for Stadamthof (Regensburg)

similar to some info on the size of whs found on the site, some numbers have typographical errors. for example, salzburg's core zone is indicated as 263 ha. but in the accompanying map, the area is 236 ha. (the one in red font color).
