On July 28, during the 44th session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, held under the chairmanship of China, a unanimous decision was made to include the Russian site “Petroglyphs of Lake Onega and the White Sea” in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
This cultural heritage site is one of the brightest sights of the Republic of Karelia and represents large original centers of rock art of the Neolithic time, which are distinguished by the originality and mysteriousness of images, a variety of themes, vivid artistic images, good preservation, as well as an extremely expressive natural environment.
