Today it is used many historic buildings actively as a basis for knowledge, experiences, employment and wealth creation locally and regionally. The buildings are dependent on good and regular maintenance. This is the theme of the EEA project Pro Monumenta that now rolled out in Slovakia.

Inspired by the Dutch system Monumentenwacht where private and public sectors working together to provide owners of historic buildings offer easy inspection and maintenance.

Good Cultural Heritage

Focusing on selected public buildings will be made, a status report of the damage and provided recommendations for future maintenance. The goal is to do surveys annually.

- So far, the project has been well received by both professionals and owners. In today's society has less and less time to maintain itself - would therefore very much appreciate the professional help and advice. Professional craftsmen and architects can provide advice and guidance and sensitize people on why it's positive to use traditional methods of maintenance work, says Pavol Izvolt, technical coordinator of the project.

According Izvolt was conducted 44 performance reports in 2014 and several small maintenance work.
