Another round of Out or in doubt. Please clarify!
1. Built or owned by Germans
Budapest - Burgtheater was a German speaking theatre until the 19th Century.
>> German speaking indeed, but created by Habsburg Empress Maria Theresa of Austria. Was it owned by Germans?
(1885) Dubbed as another WHS
Edinburgh as 'The Athens of the North'
>> (bit doubtful, as Athens technically isn't a WHS – only the Acropolis is)
(1872) Dubbed as another WHS
Florence - dubbed Athens of the Middle Ages
>> see above
Rome - several works at Galleria Borghese, Musei Capitolini, Palazzo Pampilij and others St Petersburg - "Lute Player" at the Hermitage Florence - several works at Galleria Uffizi, Museuminsel - several paintings destroyed during WWII bombings, Genoa - "Ecce Homo" at the Palazzo Rosso, Vatican - "Entombment", Paris - several works at the Louvre, Vienna - several works at the Kunsthistorisches Museum
>> I changed the description of this connection to exclude museums, as they will obviously have works by a lot of the same artists. So museums are out, works in situ are in.
(1871) Named after individual people
Monuments of Gaudi - Batllo, Vicens, Guell, Mile
>> WHS is 'only' named after Gaudí, and that's already part of the connection
(1870) Neolithic age
>> be more specific please
Humahuaca - Inca Cueva o Chulín
>> Are these pictographs or petroglyphs?
(1853) WHS Hotspot
Lucerne Hot Spot - Swiss Alp Jungfrau - Aletsch - Swiss tectonic Arena - Convent of St. Gall - Richenau Island - Bellinzona - Monte San Giorgio - Sacri Monti - Rhaetian Railway - Convent of Mustair
>> Giving the difficult technicalities of travelling is Switzerland, I find it a bit doubtful to do all these sites as daytrips from Luzern. I've been to Monte San Giorgio myself, that's already quite a trek from Lugano (itself 2 hours away from Luzern by car). If you've experienced otherwise, I gladly hear so.
(1852) WHS Hotspot
Emilia-Romagna and Marche Hotspot - San Marino Veneto hotspot - The Dolomites
>> Which spot in the Dolomites? It is not very close and difficult terrain.
(1803) Congresses and Conferences
Chairs used at the Congress of Vienna now reside at Mount Stewart, home of Robert Stewart, Viscount Castlereagh.
(1802) Winston Churchill
Mount Stewart was the home of the 7th Marquess of Londonderry who was Winston Churchill's cousin. Churchill visited Mount Stewart often.
(1801) Charles Darwin
Charles Darwin sailed on the Beagle expedition which was commanded by Fitzroy, the son of the 1st Marquess of Londonderry who lived at Mount Stewart.
>> Londonderry isn't a WHS!
(1797) Holy Islamic site
Suleyman-Too - the main Muslim pilgramige site in central Asia
>> Connection is meant for the 5+ Holiest sites of Islam. Rest is in under Mosques (or could be under Islamic pilgrimage sites).
(1798) Sacred Mountains
Jerusalem - Temple Mount
>> is it described as such? name a source
