The State Museum-Reserve Peterhof received the UNESCO World Heritage symbol on Saturday
The community will be presented with two granite slabs with the World Heritage emblem and the UNESCO logotype. The monuments were unveiled in front of the main entrance to the museum-reserve's lower park. To date, this symbol has been placed in only one other location in Russia: the Kazan citadel. No other Saint Petersburg establishments have thus far been recommended by the World Heritage Committee to bear the symbol. The memorial granite slabs were prepared for Peterhof on City Day by the company Lenstroimaterialy. The State Museum-Reserve Peterhof, which receives 6 million visitors annually, was already included in the World Heritage list of protected worldwide cultural and natural heritage sites in 1990 along with Tsarskoe Selo, The Hermitage, and the Russian Museum. Inclusion in this list confirms the exceptional world value of cultural or natural sites that should be preserved for the good of mankind. Sites included in the World Heritage list should be marked with the World Heritage emblem with the logotype UNESCO, in accordance with the basic principles and rules of the use of the World Heritage emblem. After inclusion in the list a memorial sign is placed in the monument. The purpose of the emblem is to announce to the population of the given government and to visiting guests that the particular site they are visiting holds special meaning and represents the interests of not only that country but the entire world.
