Project description

The subject of the project is to fundamentally change the current form of two buildings and other selected parts of the Carthusian monastery through a monumental restoration combined with the insertion of new content corresponding to its historical legacy. The restoration and new functional content of a part of the monastery is intended to ensure the ability not only to maintain the acquired form but also to generate revenues that would allow further restoration. The aim of the project is, on the one hand, to make the monastery complex, farm building, and convent more attractive for visitors in the form and content of an experiential visit to a cultural and historical monument and, on the other hand, to create conditions for training activities in the field of monument protection. The creation of a new offer for the visitor is based on the revival of selected parts of the former life of monks but also the functions with which the monastery was and is connected for experts and interested members of the general public: school in nature & museum & Monument Office of the Slovak Republic.
