WorldHeritageSitesTriviaQuiz Photo UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) was founded in 1945. After the war, the world was in rebuilding mode and tourism was not the main preoccupation. However, UNESCO ratified a World Heritage convention in 1972 designed to help preserve places of cultural or national importance "to the common heritage of humanity". This convention was the beginning of a special league of great cultural attractions.
As of 2009, 890 sites (689 cultural, 176 natural and 25 mixed properties) in 148 countries have been listed.
Ten trivia questions about ten different sites, your overall knowledge and common sense will be tested. Enjoy!

Nice quiz! I'm quite annoyed with myself - the one I got wrong I knew was wrong as soon as I answered it!
