People hear “this and that” and in numerous scenarios we experience on ourselves, that we deem the majority of the informations recieved unimportant when it comes to general knowledge of our world due to the lack of interest and time, indifference or simple laziness. A collection of trustworthy, treasured informations and peaceful acts towards a sustainable life is invaluable.
So what does UNESCO do?
In 1945, UNESCO was created in order to respond to the firm belief of nations, forged by two world wars in less than a generation, that political and economic agreements are not enough to build a lasting peace. Peace must be established on the basis of humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity.
Building intercultural understanding: through protection of heritage and support for cultural diversity. UNESCO created the idea of World Heritage to protect sites of outstanding universal value.
UNESCO World Heritage List includes sites we all heard of like: Rapa Nui of the Easter Island, the Acropolis of Greece looming over the city of Athens, Petra in Jordan or the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
The site of Budapest, including the Banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue have the remains of monuments such as the Roman city of Aquincum and the Gothic castle of Buda, which have had a considerable influence on the architecture of various periods. It is one of the world’s outstanding urban landscapes and illustrates the great periods in the history of the Hungarian capital.
Since 1987 our beloved capital is inscribed in the UNESCO Wolrd Heritage List, and it is our duty to endure visitors to gain insight into this beautiful city and return home with great memories!
