Romania has seven sites on the World Heritage List, and its Tentative List includes cultural and natural heritage sites. One of these cultural sites, the Historic Centre of Sighişoara, attracted a great deal of attention owing to a project to build a theme-park in the vicinity. Fortunately, this project was eventually abandoned.

The restoration of the Probata monastery was undertaken with the help of UNESCO/Japan Funds-in-Trust.
In the field of intangible heritage, the Calus tradition, a Romanian ritual dance, was proclaimed a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2005.
Regarding intercultural dialogue, Romania established a UNESCO Chair for Intercultural and Interreligious Studies and Exchange at the University of Bucharest.
