A fun way to explore former Soviet nations is see how many UNESCO World Heritage Sites you can visit. Depending on your time constrains and how you plan your route, its possible to check off a half dozen or more cultural and natural sites on a single trip. But due to the expansiveness of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia, many World Heritage Sites are much more tricky to get to. Still, this shouldn’t be a deterrent. Some of the more remote sites get very few foreign visitors, so the gratitude of the locals and the natural splendor you’ll encounter, make a visit even more rewarding. Below is a long list of UNESCO World Heritage sites to consider.
