Croatia tops the chart with 7 properties; Serbia has 4 including the ones in Kosovo which is not yet on the World Heritage List; Albania, Bosnia, and Montenegro each have 2, and Macedonia has 1 - the Ohrid region.
Most of the sites, 14, are cultural properties. Two of them are natural ones: the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia, and the Durmitor National Park in Montenegro. One is mixed - the Ohrid region. One property only, the Medieval Monuments in Kosovo is registered as a cultural site in danger.
St. Jovan Bigorski is a 19th century monastery standing on the slopes of Debar’s Mt. Bistra, above the banks of the Radika River between the towns of Debar and Gostivar. While relatively new, St. Jovan was constructed over the remains of an older church dating back to A.D. 1021. The monastery has a small silver coffin containing alleged relics of St. Jovan. The monastery complex includes a dining room and an old monastic dormitory, tower, charnel house, and two fountains with fresh mountain water.
Located in central Albania, Berat bears witness to the coexistence of various religious and cultural communities down the centuries. It features a castle, locally known as the Kala, most of which was built in the 13th century, although its origins date back to the 4th century BC. The citadel area numbers many Byzantine churches, mainly from the 13th century, as well as several mosques built under the Ottoman era which began in 1417.
In the Middle Ages, this natural harbour on the Adriatic coast in Montenegro was an important artistic and commercial centre with its own famous schools of masonry and iconography. A large number of the monuments (including four Romanesque churches and the town walls) were seriously damaged by the 1979 earthquake but the town has been restored, largely with UNESCO’s help.
Mostar Old Bridge
The Old Bridge of Mostar is located in the centre of Old City of Mostar. It was built in 1566. This arch construction connects the left and the right side of the Neretva River. Arch is 28.7 wide and 21m high compared with summer level of the river. From the highest amplitude in July every year jumps are held. Mostar was named after the wooden bridge (mostari – bridge keepers) which was on that place before it was rebuilt in 1520 into stone one.
