Which country has the most number of heritage sites? While some have none at all, some countries boast of having around 50 heritage sites that show the art and craftsmanship of locals living in the area. Do you want to visit them all? Here are the top five countries with most UNESCO counted places.

Italy, 51 sites. Topping the ranks is Italy with 47 cultural sites, and four of the 51 total spots are considered natural sites. It's entirely understandable since Italy flourished during the Roman Empire and Renaissance period. So, if you're around the area, try visiting the City of Verona, Costiera Amalfitana, and the Aqueduct of Vanvitelli in case you no longer wanted to step foot at the Colosseum.

China, 50 sites. Almost close to Italy, China has 50 sites all in all after elevating its culture during the past dynasties, according to The Telegraph. Being one of the oldest civilizations in the country, it's no wonder they have almost perfected their pursuit of culture. Other than the Forbidden Palace and The Great Wall, try heading to the Chengjiang Fossil Site, Lushan National Park, and the Ancient City of Ping Yao.

Spain, 45 sites. The Spanish Regime has a vast empire even colonizing different countries such as the Philippines, Mexico, Papua New Guinea and more. By then, Spain already has a thriving culture and tried to introduce them to the world. Wanna travel to its national parks? Then sprint to Teide National Park, where the country's volcano is located, or the Doñana National Park. For more nature-loving spots, the Palmeral of Elche, Ibiza, and the Serra de Tramuntana will do.

France, 42 sites. France is known for its historic empire and how they uphold their arts. From the Greek and Roman colonies to the reign of Louis XI the Prudent and Louis XVI, France boasts of being one of the most recognized countries for its culture and traditions. If you're no longer the Parisian traveler that wants to visit the Eiffel Tower, try the Fortifications of Vauban, Historic Site of Lyon, and the Provins, Town of Medieval Fairs.

Germany, 41 sites. Germany has its fair share of Roman influence, said the World Atlas. Beyond that, there are already tribes during the Bronze Age that have come in contact with the Gaelic and Gaul groups of Europe. Its culture and sites have a mixed influence on the religious and secular environment of the country. Anyway, if you don't find yourself drinking their beers in pubs, go to the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe park and take a walk, or the City Hall and Roland in Bremen market square for that matter.
