Ukraine. Khan’s Palace in Crimea probably on UNESCO list.

15 Feb 2011

 The Khan’s Palace of the Bakhchisaray Historical and Cultural Reserve could become the first Crimean site of cultural heritage to be included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the main information policy department of the Crimean Council of Ministers has reported, referring to the director general of the Bakhchisaray Historical and Cultural Reserve, Yevhen Petrov.
The procedure foresees the carrying out of preliminary restoration work.  The inclusion of the Khan’s Palace on the list would mean it might be able to receive financial support from the UNESCO Fund.  “By Sept. 1, 2011 a dossier, which will include the plan of management of the territories and facilities of the reserve, and reports on the monitoring of the facilities of the Khan’s Palace, is to be submitted to UNESCO,” Yevhen Petrov said.
