This I guess can be done pretty easily since all participating 
countries (except for Russia) have lists of monuments, and the progress 
of adding them to the list is monitored on Commons,


We can safely assume that in 99% of the cases if the picture is on the 
list and a separate dedicated article exists then the picture is also in 
the article. The remaining 1% are the articles which for whatever reason 
are not linked from the lists.

How many articles we have can be determined by the number of links from 
the lists, but this probably can not be done without a bot.
