Slovak UNESCO World Heritage Tour

Main role of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage is to create a list of the world's natural and historical monuments to guarantee their preservation and protection.

Three localities from Slovakia were inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage List of cultural monuments already in 1993: Castle of Spis and its environs, Banska Stiavnica and Vlkolinec. In 2000, the historic town Bardejov was added and in 2008, wooden churches of the Slovak part of Carpathian Mountain Area.

Slovakia's unique natural phenomena are represented in the UNESCO List by caves and abysses of Slovak karst and by Dobsinska ice cave. In 2007 the Carpathian primeval beech forests of the Bukovske vrchy and Vihorlatske vrchy Mts. in the east of Slovakia were added to this list.

Fujara is the most typical Slovak musical instrument. It was inscribed into the UNESCO List of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Fujara is an overtone fipple flute that can be up to 1.8m long. It is usually made from elder tree and has a characteristic meditation tone. It is known nowhere else in the world but Slovakia. This country is considered to be the place of origin of this instrument, especially the region of Polana and North Gemer. It used to be the typical instrument of shepherds. Fujaras were decorated by ornaments or figural decorations.
