The final list of 7 endangered European cultural heritage sites will be unveiled in the spring of 2022.

Additionally. Buchach Town Hall is a unique architectural monument of the mid-18th century in the city Buchach, Ternopil region. It was erected in 1750 (according to other sources—the time is unknown) in the Rococo style. Architect—Bernard Meretyn, sculptor—Johann Georg Pinsel, founder—Mikołaj Bazyli Potocki.

Sanguszko Palace is a Baroque building. It is a part of an architectural complex located in the vastness of the Novozaslavsky Castle (now the city of Iziaslav, Khmelnytskyi region). It was built in 1754-1770. The building was designed by the Polish architect Jakub Fontana. In 1963, the site was taken under state protection, but this did not stop its gradual destruction.

The 7 Most Endangered Program is implemented by the European network Europa Nostra in partnership with the European Investment Bank Institute. The program is implemented with the support of the EU Creative Europe.

Europa Nostra is not involved in the financial rescue of the sites. The organization only draws attention to those of them that may disappear from the face of the earth in the near future.
