Not a WHS, but still an interesting read:

This one is, about Hallstatt:

Austria's tiny village with 10,000 day-trippers

An ancient 'lost city' teeming with life

DNA study reveals Ireland's age of 'god-kings'

Your timing is very eerie. I just finished a review referencing Irish DNA without even seeing that you'd posted this in the forum this evening. Very interesting article.

Japan failed to recognize Korea forced labour victims in newly open facilities of Meiji industrial heritage

When the next World Heritage Convention does actually convene, there will likely be (at least) 2 thorny issues brought before the committee.

"Japan's 'Island of Hell' whitewash mars Unesco Heritage site" (JoongAng Daily)

"S. Korea to request UNESCO remove Hashima Island from world heritage list" (Yonhap News)

"South Korea to seek removal of Japanese sites from UNESCO World Heritage list" (Japan Times)

Just heads up, the news link for the Liverpool zip line links to the main site for china.org which brings me to say this:
- makes no sense to link a Chinese website to an English news item, but okay
- use this instead https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-merseyside-53222988
- consider not posting state-controlled news items if there are alternatives, e.g. China's Global Times or Xinhua, or the Russian websites. Not to get too political but Wikipedia blocks these as unreliable sources for a reason.

Noted and changed - Xinhua often is very fast that's why.

Interesting article highlighting Korean and Dutch WHS.

https://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/2020/07/09/national/diplomacy/Netherlands-Into-the-Heart-of-the-Country-Unesco-heritage/20200709165800480.html

On another note, its mentioned Dutch designers will play an important role in what happens to the land of the former Yongsan Military Base. Which has also been rumored as a potential candidate for world heritage status.

"And with discussions underway about how to shape the Yongsan military base into a national park once the U.S. Forces Korea take their leave by 2021, it comes as no surprise that a Dutch designer will influence the project."

Hagia Sophia is converted to a mosque. I feel so embarrassed of what the islamofascist government did. I can assure you that there are at least 40 million Turks in Turkey who share the same feeling. Fascist governments are ruling the world and the world is definitely in flames. So sad...
