38 objects of the Great Silk Road - candidates for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List
China, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan have applied for the inclusion of 38-i sites of the Great Silk Road on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Among the candidates for the replenishment of the List are Saimaluu-Tash petroglyphs, the Great Silk Road and the Western Tien Shan reported to CCTV.
The Silk Road is a network of trade and cultural routes that once connected the East with the West. The system of caravan routes developed during the Han Dynasty more than 2 thousand thousands of years ago and existed up to the 15 century. The mainland covered dozens of countries and had a length of more than 10-thousand kilometers. The caravan road, according to experts, was of great economic, political and cultural importance.
Guo Zhan, Director of the International Council of Monuments and Cultural Objects:
"There is no other such trade route on the planet! The Great Silk Road connected two great civilizations - Western and Far Eastern!"
Among the candidates for the completion of the List from China are 5 provinces and 22 sights. Kazakhstan has declared 8 cultural sites, Kyrgyzstan - 3. All the sights are located on the Great Silk Road and mainly represent architectural structures of religious and cultural themes.
The decision of the UN expert committee will be known in June.
