On this page you will find everything that concerns the 20th anniversary of the inscription of our town on the UNESCO World Heritage List. We will gradually publish all actual events which are expected in 2015. Follow us!
We will look back at the past twenty years in Kutná Hora and in other monuments of the UNESCO, being attended by the prominent Czech and foreign experts.
We will commemorate this anniversary in musical and visual aspect through classical music, opera, as well as new art styles.
We will target mainly the young people and child audience by the interactive program focused on exploring the monuments of Kutná Hora.
The inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995 became a defining moment in the modern history of the town of Kutná Hora. The long-term effort of many representatives of state authorities, local government, private owners and churches managed to preserve and restore the most valuable monuments. Understandably there is still a number of other monuments that need urgent repair, as well as the whole town requires a sensitive approach to further development.
However, we can surely rightly say that Kutná Hora has retained its unique character and expression and it strengthened its permanent position among the most significant historical settlements in Europe.
