The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) is responsible for pointing out, preserving and spreading cultures across the world. Though Mother Earth is already abundant with natural and man-made wonders, some ancient structures still stand the test of time as an ode to a past long gone, but not forgotten. There are thousands of these ancient relics world over, but there are some which attract a host of tourists because of their uniqueness and sheer beauty to the beholder. Here are the Most Awe-Some UNESCO World Heritage Sites you need to add to your bucket list:
PERGAMON, Bergama, Turkey
Around 4 centuries B.C., there was a civilisation that created structures that would out-rival many modern architectural structures today. Tucked away in Turkey, a land known for its imbibed cultures through various conquering armies are the remains of the city of Pergamon. Though parts of the excavations are in museums around the world, one can still observe the Library of Pergamon that is said to have housed over 200,000 books. Other great structures here include temples, gyms, temples and parts of stone buildings.
