Xem anh phong to
The General Director of the UNESCO will arrive in Hanoi on October 1 to attend celebrations of the 1,000th birthday of the capital city and hand over certification of UNESCO recognition of Thang Long Royal Citadel as a world cultural heritage.

Head of the UNESCO Office in Hanoi Katherine Muller Marin announced the visit at a song and dance festival in Hanoi on September 18.

The 35 th session of the UNESCO General Assembly in 2009 passed a resolution on UNESCO’s participation in the grand ceremony of the 1,000 th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.

Almost one year later, the UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee recognised Vietnam ’s Thang Long Royal Citadel as a world cultural heritage at its 34th session in Brazil on July 31.

The site won the recognition thanks to its three outstanding characteristics: the length of its cultural history, the continuity of the citadel as a power centre, and the variety of relics it contains.

The citadel will open to visitors in time for Hanoi ’s 1,000th anniversary.

The cleanup at relic site of the Thang Long citadel is also expected to finish by September 20. On September 16, Permanent Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Sinh Hung paid a visit to the site to check the arrangement of artifacts found at the 18 Hoang Dieu street, the archaeological excavation area for the planned exhibition.
