Jurre:
do we consider the Yellow Sea to be a part of the East China Sea, or could we split it off into its own connection?

If we can split it, it's best to do. I'll move them.

"Our Great National Parks" [Limited Series] narrated by Barack Obama (Netflix)

I am not really sold (yet) at including this one. It's brand new, so we don't know how much acclaim it will get. Also, it's a TV documentary series, I thought we had included documentary films only so far (but need to check). We've also not included any Attenborough series, which have been much more groundbreaking and influential.

Also for Undergoing Restoration or Repair:

At the Bryggen in Bergen the FInnegård, a component of the core zone andseat of teh 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.

Maybe of some interest for a connection because of the numerous short "travel style" videos that were posted by the Obama White House. Some videos are included as a series called "On Board".

Regarding the Stonehenge video: "No person may touch, lean against, stand on or climb the stones, or disturb the ground in any way."

Obama White House Videos of World Heritage Sites

Yellowstone National Park (2010)
Robben Island (2013)
Island of Gorée (2013)
Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites (2014)
Acropolis, Athens (2016)
Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genbaku Dome) (2016)
Yosemite National Park (2016)
Papahānaumokuākea (2016)

The connection rules could be:
1. must be from the Obama White House youtube channel

Connection: Dubbed as another WHS

Ljubljana - "Slovene architect Jože Plečnik had already worked with notable designers of the era in Vienna and Prague before returning home to rebuild the capital in the 1930s. His plan was inspired by ancient Athens – he even called it "The Slovenian Acropolis"." (The design that changed European cities)

Connection: Fusion

Ljubljana - "(...) inspired by ancient cultures, and by Baroque and Renaissance art, Plečnik created a unique architecture utterly different from the prevailing style of the time." "Plečnik's vision transformed Ljubljana and made it a prime example of how classical and modern styles could be combined to serve the people who lived there." (The design that changed European cities)

Connection: Ossuary

Necropolis of Bet She'arim - "There's plenty of light and height in most of the areas, and temperatures inside are comfortable, making it easy to spend a few hours gazing at the sheer variety of impressive ossuaries, tunnels, inscriptions and symbolic decorations." (Wander among the ancients at an Israeli world heritage site)

Connection: Rock Cut Art

Necropolis of Bet She'arim - "In one cave, known as the Cave of the Coffins, "the mother of all menorahs" was discovered. It stands more than six feet tall and four feet wide, and is just one of many seven-branched carved stone menorahs found throughout the site. Other carvings in that same cave are taken from the animal world." The "Menorah Caves Compound (...) preserved by special order of the Knesset, contain[s] dozens of depictions of the menorah that became the symbol of the State of Israel." (Wander among the ancients at an Israeli world heritage site)
