Czech Republic – Holašovice Historic Village

In 1992, Czechs marked their first UNESCO success, when Prague, Telč and Kutná Hora were added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Today, the Czech Republic has twelve entries on the list and others have been put forward.

The historic centre of Prague, Telč and Český Krumlov were the first sites in the Czech Republic to become part of the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage Sites back in 1992.

In the following years, they were joined by another nine sites: the Pilgrimage Church of St. John of Nepomuk at Zelená Hora, the Lednice Valtice Cultural landscape, the gardens and castle in Kroměříž, the historic village of Holašovice, the Litomyšl Castle, Villa Tugenhadt in Brno and most recently, in 2003, the Jewish Quarter in Třebíč.

Dita Limová is the head of the UNESCO Division in the Department of International Relations of the Culture Ministry.
