About European Heritage Days


European Heritage Days

European Heritage Days render a unique and one-of-a-kind opportunity to see usually inaccessible places of major historical monuments and to become familiar with the processes involved in their conservation and restoration. In accompanying expert lectures, visitors may learn many interesting facts relating to construction history and current findings.

Every year, usually during the second weekend of September, the doors of the most interesting monuments, buildings, premises and areas are opened to the public. That includes those that are otherwise partly or totally inaccessible.

The prior aims of this event are: to improve information about other cultures; to protect cultural heritage in the broadest sense of the word; to respect all cultures regardless of their spread and to work for a multi-cultural approach; to regard cultural heritage as an asset which can be used in the struggle against intolerance and bigotry; to support an open and free view of culture, which has an effect not only on economic development, but also on the sustainable development of human society.

The European Heritage Days are to bring Europeans closer to their cultural heritage, and to help protect cultural monuments, something that requires an enhancement of the prestige of private and public institutions of monument protection. Last but not least, the purpose of EHD is to support a more open attitude to others (combating xenophobia and racism, searching for one´s own identity, strengthening common memory), and also to contribute to a re-assessment and explanation of the political, social and economic contexts of the cultural values of the past. The Czech Republic has been participating in the event since 1991.
