Colchic rainforests, wetlands join UNESCO World Heritage List

At the decision of the World Heritage Committee, the Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands will be inscribed on the World Heritage List.
 
The nomination “Colchic Rainforests and Wetlands” was prepared by the Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture, in cooperation with international experts.
 
Three non-natural Georgian monuments are inscribed on the list — the Gelati Monastery in the country’s west, the Historical Monuments of Mtskheta, outside the capital Tbilisi, and Upper Svaneti, a highland province in the country’s north.
 
The decision was made at the 44th session of the World Heritage Committee, held online and chaired from Fuzhou, China.
