UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Since 1972, UNESCO has been honouring cultural and natural treasures across the world, to ensure they can be enjoyed for future generations to come. Graubünden has three UNESCO world heritage sites: the Monastery of St. John in Müstair, the Albula and Bernina lines of the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) and the Sardona Tectonic Arena.
UNESCO World Heritage
Certain cultural and natural properties are of outstanding universal value and must be placed under protection because of their significance for all humankind. These properties are included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. With its adoption in 1972, UNESCO gave itself the mandate to preserve cultural and natural properties of outstanding universal value for future generations.
