483 MX - Pre-Hispanic City of Chichen-Itza (1988)

Brief Description

"This sacred site was one of the greatest Mayan centres of the Yucatán peninsula. Throughout its nearly 1,000-year history, different peoples have left their mark on the city. The Maya and Toltec vision of the world and the universe is revealed in their stone monuments and artistic works. The fusion of Mayan construction techniques with new elements from central Mexico make Chichen-Itza one of the most important examples of the Mayan-Toltec civilization in Yucatán. Several buildings have survived, such as the Warriors’ Temple, El Castillo and the circular observatory known as El Caracol."

699 LU - City of Luxembourg: its Old Quarters and Fortifications (1994)

Brief Description

"Because of its strategic position, Luxembourg was, from the 16th century until 1867, when its walls were dismantled, one of Europe's greatest fortified sites. It was repeatedly reinforced as it passed from one great European power to another: the Holy Roman Emperors, the House of Burgundy, the Habsburgs, the French and Spanish kings, and finally the Prussians. Until their partial demolition, the fortifications were a fine example of military architecture spanning several centuries."

卢森堡市、要塞及老城区
"由于特殊的地理战略位置,卢森堡从16世纪到19 世纪的1867年成为中立国前,一直都是欧洲最重要的要塞之一。卢森堡曾辗转落入欧洲各列强(神圣罗马帝国、勃艮第公爵、哈布斯堡家族、法国和西班牙国 王,最后是普鲁士人)的手中。其气势雄伟的城防工事是跨越了几个世纪的欧洲军事建筑的缩影,后被拆除,只剩少部分残余。"

1137 LT - Kernavė Archaeological Site (2004)

Brief Description

"The Kernavė Archaeological site, about 35 km north-west of Vilnius in eastern Lithuania, represents an exceptional testimony to some 10 millennia of human settlements in this region. Situated in the valley of the River Neris, the site is a complex ensemble of archaeological properties, encompassing the town of Kernavė, forts, some unfortified settlements, burial sites and other archaeological, historical and cultural monuments from the late Palaeolithic Period to the Middle Ages. The site of 194,4 ha has preserved the traces of ancient land-use, as well as remains of five impressive hill forts, part of an exceptionally large defence system. Kernavė was an important feudal town in the Middle Ages. The town was destroyed by the Teutonic Order in the late 14th century, however the site remained in use until modern times."

克拿维考古遗址(克拿维文化保护区)
"克拿维考古遗址位于立陶宛东部,在维 尔纽斯西北约35公里处,是该地区人类居住约10 000年历史的特别例证。遗址群坐落在涅里斯河谷地,包括克拿维城、堡垒、一些未设防的居住地、墓地和从旧石器时代晚期到中世纪时其他的考古、历史和文化 遗迹。该遗址面积为194.4公顷,保留有古代土地使用的遗迹,还有五个山上堡垒(大型防御系统的一部分)的残留部分。克拿维是中世纪一个重要的封建城 镇。 虽然该城在14世纪晚期受到条顿骑士团规约的破坏,但是直到现代还在继续使用中。"

994 LT/RU - Curonian Spit (2000)

Brief Description

"Human habitation of this elongated sand dune peninsula, 98 km long and 0.4-4 km wide, dates back to prehistoric times. Throughout this period it has been threatened by the natural forces of wind and waves. Its survival to the present day has been made possible only as a result of ceaseless human efforts to combat the erosion of the Spit, dramatically illustrated by continuing stabilisation and reforestation projects."

库尔斯沙嘴
"这个延伸出来的沙丘半岛长98公里,宽0.4-4公里,史前时代就有人类居住。自古以来,这里受到了海风、潮汐等自然力量的威胁,由于一代又一代的人通过不断的造林固沙工程与沙嘴的侵蚀进行搏斗,使遗址如今得以存在。"
