UNESCO's site is wonderful to explore, but also can be confusing. Tips:  Hover your cursor over the main map (pictured above). As your cursor moves over various elements, connections are highlighted. Follow one of the strands and you'll find a cultural element at the end! Click on it to learn about it.  You can also directly browse and search the information by country or key word here. NOTE: The United States is not a party to the 2003 Convention that established this UNESCO initiative, so no US resources are listed in the searchable database.
