More 3 Unesco cards

These are the cards i've received today, 3 new unesco cards from New Zealand, Hungary and Czech Republic. They've been sent by Jane "enajpostcards".

"Milford Sound (Piopiotahi in Māori) is a fjord in the south west of New Zealand's South Island, within Fiordland National Park and the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage site. It has been judged the world's top travel destination in an international survey, and is acclaimed as New Zealand's own most famous tourist destination. Rudyard Kipling had previously called it the eighth Wonder of the World." - in: wikipedia.

"Puszta is a concept often associated with the Hungarian traditional landscape. It means "steppe", a full vegetation and bushy land, wilderness, a grassy kind of semi-desert. With a capital letter and a definite article, it refers to flat parts of the Alföld (the Great Hungarian Plain). It is originally inhabited by cowherds, shepherds, and horseherds. From 1999, The Puszta (or Hortobágy National Park) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hungary." - in: wikipedia.

"Lednice is a village in the Czech Republic. In 1996 it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List (together with the twin manor of Valtice/Feldsberg) as "an exceptional example of the designed landscape that evolved in the Enlightenment and afterwards under the care of a single family." It contains a palace and the largest park in the country, which covers 200 km²." - in: wikipedia.
