World Heritage Sites visited
As of today, UNESCO has designated 830 sites around the world as World Heritage. Whenever visiting a country it's a good idea to check what World Heritage sites there are in that country, although many sites have little to see and are only on the list because of their historical significance.

Since I like keeping lists, here's one with the sites I've been to, country by country just like the full list. The year between brackets is the one in which the site was added to that list.
