According to turizmusonline.hu, the Hungarian Danube section of the Roman Empire may win UNESCO World Heritage title in 2018, which can be one of the largest World Heritage sites in the world.
The aim of the Duna-Limes program is to achieve that the world-fame could impact the non-Roman values as well and to create an organized and thematic touristic offer, taking into consideration all international demands.
Turizmusonline.hu knows that the application must be sent within a year. The registration document was filled by University of Pécs, between 2008 and 2011. It was entitled “The boundaries of the Roman Empire – Hungarian section of the Danube limes”.
The registration is possible in January 2017, while the verifying and certifying examinations can last 1-1.5 years. This area is 417 km-long and it is one of the most usable UNESCO-entry areas in the world.
The Ministry of National Economy supports the application; they signed a support contract with the Hungarian Limes Alliance on December 30, 2015.
The Alliance also published an English language edition for commercial purposes. In addition, they have a website and cell phone applications as well.
The organization cited the Abbey of Pannonhalma and Hadrian’s Wall as examples that will probably have an increase of tourism after winning the World Heritage award, turizmusonline.hu wrote.
