Restoring local cultural heritage

  • The Czech Republic's €700,000 Vysocina Cultural Heritage Fund supports 6 projects to restore local cultural heritage monuments in the Region of Vysocina.

    Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway are supporting the Cultural Heritage Fund with € 600,000, with the Vysocina region providing the remaining 15% of the fund.

    The overall goal of the fund is to support the restoration of monuments of historical and cultural significance in the region, and thus support the development of tourism in the region of Vysocina.

    Through one open call, grants were awarded to 6 projects supporting construction work and restoration of the following cultural heritage monuments: St. Jacob’s the Elder, St. Philip’s Church, St.Jacob’s Church, the baroque castel in Myslibořice, St.Peter’s and St.Paul’s Church in Nová Říše, St.Vitus’ Church in Pelhřimov and the Town hall in Telč.
