Information in a nutshell

The concept of preventive protection of landmarks introduces a unique feature into the system of conservation care in Slovakia and introduces continuous determination of the construction and technical condition of the real property conservation stock. Preventive protection of landmarks improves the knowledge of the current condition of selected real property cultural landmarks, remove their minor faults on the spot and, at the same time, improve the awareness of owners of administrators of the real property cultural heritage in Slovakia of their possible maintenance options. Monitoring uses the state-of the-art diagnostic procedures (tablets with specialised software, thermovision cameras, specially equipped vehicles, drones) and is based on detailed methodology prepared for the purposes of the project with best experts in conservation and construction surveys. The higher ability to keep the landmark in corresponding condition significantly contributes to maintaining the most important parts of the abundant cultural heritage of Slovakia.

Project description

The project follows up the previous project Pro Monumenta - Prevention by Maintenance. This is a predefined project under the "Cultural Entrepreneurship, Cultural Heritage and Cultural Cooperation" program, the main aim of which is to complete a sustainable system of preventive inspections of immovable monuments so that at least 100 inspections per year are carried out. The project also includes the construction of 3 small training centres for traditional craft practices used in the restoration of monuments. The workshops will serve not only as practical "workshops" for training participants but also as workshops for inspectors from the Department of preventive maintenance of monuments (OPÚP). The project also includes further promotion of the idea of preventive maintenance in the form of the organization of 4 events entitled "Day of gutter cleaning" in the historic centres of Skalica, Banská Štiavnica, Kežmarok, and Levoča.
