The Lena Pillars National Park was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2012. Also UNESCO will consider Russia’s bid for including its medieval fortresses in Astrakhan, Uglich and Pskov.

A decision to this effect was made at a session of the World Heritage Committee in St.Petersburg. Old Russian historical and architectural ensembles, known as the kremlins, served as defense fortifications in their time and present a particular interest for historians due to their refined architecture and Orthodox churches huddled inside.

The Lena Pillars National Park, a natural rock formation stretching for many kilometers along the banks of the Lena River in far eastern Siberia, was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2012. This brings the number of UNESCO world heritage sites in Russia to 25. Lena Pillars are vertical rocks intricately towering along the banks of the Lena River for many miles. The location is a bit far and the closest big city is Yakutsk though it is for sure worth seeing!
