This page aims to gather the data on the progress of Wiki Loves Monuments 2013 in all participating countries. Due to design limitations, it has been split into three different tables; when updating the status of WLM2013 in your country, please update all of them, so we could easily keep track of your progress.

If your country is missing and you are intending to participate: no bad intentions, just add it :) de
