The UNESCO World Natural Heritage is diverse, indeed. For example the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the Great Himalayan National Park in India, the Grand Canyon National Park in the USA or the famous fjords in Norway. Almost half of Slovakia is covered by forests, 45 percent to be more precise. Well, and among those forest is a unique hidden jewel - the Primeval Carpathian beech forests. Our colleague Elena Seeber researched material about these forests for the 6th round of our competition.
As you have heard in the feature, Carpathian beech forests are no longer just a regional UNESCO item. Our competition question therefore is:
How many European countries will be part of the Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe UNESCO inscription following its enlargement?
