In 1986 the Škocjan Caves became the first Slovene landmark inscribed onto a UNESCO World Heritage Site list. The remains of two prehistoric pile-dwellings from the Ljubljansko Barje marshlands were accepted in 2011 as a part of transnational heritage site "Prehistoric Pile-Dwellings in the Alpine Area", which comprises a selection of 111 archaeological sites in six countries around the Alps. The latest addition is the Heritage of Mercury. Almadén and Idrija, listed in 2012.

UNESCO’s Tentative List, which is a required stage of the nomination process, currently has six Slovenian entries – Classical Karst since 1994 and 2015, the Fužina Hills in Bohinj since 1994, the Franja Partisan Hospital since 2000, the beech forests in the Notranjska region since 2015, the architecture of Jože Plečnik since 2015 and The Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic – Heritage of the First World War, in February 2016.
