Serbia has four cultural sites on the World Heritage List.

In 2006, the World Heritage Committee decided to extent the Dečani Monastery by adding three religious complexes the Patriarchate of Peć Monastery, Gračanica Monastery and Church of the Virgin of Leviša. This site, now known as "Medieval Monuments in Kosovo", is inscribed on the List of World Heritage in Danger.

In the framework of the flagship programme of the UNESCO Venice Office, "Art and Culture at the Service of Reconciliation", Serbia participates in various workshops, conferences and seminars devoted to enhancing cooperation and dialogue between countries of South-East Europe through the restoration and conservation of their cultural heritage. More specifically, Serbia has participated in the Third Ministerial Conference on Cultural Property in South-East Europe organized in Ohrid in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
