I've just started adding a new Connection: INTO Places (see https://www.into.org/places/ for what it involves). Thanks Elena for the suggestion!
Is there anyone here who has practical experience with this? Especially in the UK: could I go into all UK National Trust places just showing my "Geldersch Landschap and Kasteelen" card (which even doesn't have a membership, only donations) from the Netherlands?

Criterion (ii): The post-war reconstruction plan of Le Havre is an outstanding example and a landmark of the integration of urban planning traditions and a pioneer implementation of modern development in architecture, technology and town planning.

Very nice connection! I was myself thinking to propose it, but could not go beyond Italy's site and just some English one. It is surprising to learn there are so many internationally! I will try to put my FAI inscription at good use...

Just some small, pedantic details: della in Giardino della Kolymbethra is lowercase; it is Castelseprio with one t, but more importantly, only Torba is managed by FAI (it was their first one!), while Castelseprio's archaeological area is state-owned and has a different entrance (even if it's free).

I think it is debatable whether Ani really is a ghost town, although it often is described as such. Isn't it 'just' a set of ruins? It has no roads, no houses. It has been abandoned centuries ago. There are other medieval city ruins such as Mystras on the List.

Provins and Rachid Karami International Fair-Tripoli are not in the "International Exhibitions" connection.

However, the word "fair" is part of their title and they deserve to be in a connection.

Odesa: Built or owned by French: Armand-Emmanuel de Vignerot du Plessis, duc de Richelieu
"In the eleven years of his administration, Odesa greatly increased in size and importance, eventually becoming the third largest city in the empire by population. The grateful Odesan erected a bronze monument to him in 1828. These are the famous Odesa Steps, crowned by a statue of Richelieu."

I have been looking whether a fair has ever been held at the place in Tripoli. Or was it never used for it? Need sources.

The articles on this site seem to indicate the fairground was never used for its intended purpose because it was not completed before the Lebanese civil war started in 1975.

What would be the link to Kremlin/Red Square? (Moscow's core zone is very limited, his place of birth and wedding are outside)
