Germany - Slovakia - Ukraine - Albania - Austria - Belgium - Bulgaria - Croatia - Italy - Romania - Slovenia - Spain: Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe

"This transboundary property stretches over 12 countries. Since the end of the last Ice Age, European Beech spread from a few isolated refuge areas in the Alps, Carpathians, Dinarides, Mediterranean and Pyrenees over a short period of a few thousand years in a process that is still ongoing. The successful expansion across a whole continent is related to the tree’s adaptability and tolerance of different climatic, geographical and physical conditions."

Missing 8 other countries:
- Albania (Lumi i gashit, Rrajca)
