As of 2021, 16 UNESCO World Heritage sites are located in the Czech Republic, which is 1.38% of the total number (1154) of such sites in the world. The main prerequisite for inclusion in the list is the country's ratification of the UNESCO Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. As part of Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic signed it in 1972, but ratification took place only on February 15, 1991. The following year, the historic centers of Prague, Cesky Krumlov and Telc became part of the World Heritage Site. On January 1, 1993, Czechoslovakia ceased to exist, splitting into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and on March 26 of the following year, the newly independent country ratified the convention. The Czech list was further expanded in 1994 (the church of St. John of Nepomuk in Ždyar nad Sazavou), 1995 (the historical center of Kutna Hora), 1996 (the glacial-Valtice cultural area), 1998 (the palace with gardens in Kromeriz and the historic village of Holashovytsia), 1999 (Litomysl Castle), 2000 (Holy Trinity Column in Olomouc), 2001 (Villa Tugendgat in Brno), 2003 (Jewish Quarter and Church of St. Procopius in Třebíč), 2019 (Ore Mountains Mountain Region and Horse Farm in Kladruby nad Labem) ) and 2021 (the triangle of resort towns in the Karlovy Vary region and the Jezerskorsky beech forest near Liberec). The size or occupancy of some facilities has changed over time: in 2012, the historic center of Prague was joined by a park in Pruhonytsia, and in 2018 the boundaries of the protection zone in Třebíč were modified. A number of sites are transnational: the Ore Mountains are located in Germany and the Czech Republic, and Karlovy Vary, František Baths and Marianske Lazne are part of the "Famous Balneological Resorts of Europe", which also includes other cities from Germany, Austria, France and Belgium. , Italy and the United Kingdom. Jizera Mountain Beech Forest was included in the UNESCO list during the expansion of the "Primitive Beech Forests of the Carpathians and other regions of Europe", which was first included in this list in 2007. It is the only UNESCO natural site in the Czech Republic. Not all cultural or natural sites can be part of the World Heritage, but only those that meet at least one UNESCO criterion. According to the criteria, Czech objects are distributed
