The latest addition is the Heritage of Mercury. Almadén and Idrija, listed in 2012. "Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe" encompassing forests in 12 European countries including also the two forest reserves, Krokar and Snežnik – Ždrocle Virgin Forests in Notranjska Region (inscribed in 2017).
