Roman Empire Danube Section Appeals For World Heritage Title
Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and Germany jointly appealed to the UNESCO to declare ruins of fortresses along a section of the river Danube, which had served as a borderline for the Roman Empire, a part of the World Heritage.

The bid, under which 98 sites along 1,500 kilometres of the river would be included in the UNESCO programme, is coordinated by Hungary, Csaba Latorcai, deputy state secretary at the prime minister’s office, told a press conference.

UNESCO’s World Heritage committee will evaluate the bids in June next year.
