Country File: Afghanistan

Since there’s a bunch of nattering negativity surrounding #Afghanistan around the interwebs at this exact moment, let’s send out a positive message and suggest you #travel there instead for today’s Country File — Jomhuri-ye Eslami-ye Afghanestan, commonly known as Afghanistan!

Afghanistan joined UNESCO on 04 May 1948, making it a real country by‘s standard; and it has two inscribed and four tentative World Heritage Sites:
