Historic Buildings and Protection of Cultural Heritage in Czech Republic

 

by Dr. Klára Kroftová

 

A thousand years of cultivation of the landscape and the development of architecture, town planning, art, technology and industry has filled the Czech lands with an incredible wealth of cultural monuments. They play an important part in the Czech landscape, they give towns and villages their unforgettable appearance and they fill the interiors of churches, castles, mansions and other historic buildings with valuable furnishings and collections. They are a symbol of Czech statehood and make a significant contribution to the feelings of national identity and community.

 

I'll try "to open the gates" of some of the most interesting buildings and introduce to you the ways of their protection and restoration.
