UNESCO - Liverpool – Maritime Mercantile City, UK

Liverpool played an important role in the growth of the British Empire and became the major port for the mass movement of people; it was a pioneer in the development of modern dock technology, transport systems and port management.
In 2012, the site was inscribed on the List of World Heritage in Danger due to the proposed construction of Liverpool Waters project. It is one of only two endangered World Heritage Sites in Europe (the second endangered site are Medieval Monuments in Kosovo).
There are so many buildings and statues included as whs! The ones you can see here are The Liver Building and  The Port of Liverpool Building continuing to Albert Dock, as well as Walker Art Gallery situated in a so-called 'cultural quarter'. Cheers amigo :)
