In the last century, two world wars affecting the whole world (especially Europe), and great demolition works which have caused destruction of living spaces established through the centuries have resulted in a conscious and conservative approach to historic cities. After the Second World War, an integrated conservation approach emerged and was adopted as part of conservation theory. Within this scope, the World Heritage Centre was established under the auspices of UNESCO and it has constituted the World Heritage List (Main List, Permanent List) to promote the protection of the assets displaying Outstanding Universal Value.
