UNESCO praises Prague’s monument preservation

06-07-2008

The UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee appreciated Prague’s care for its historic centre. At its session in Quebec, Canada on Sunday, the committee approved Prague’s monument care activities and also praised its reports on monument preservation in the Czech capital. Prague City Hall has recently come under criticism for a lack of respect for the character of its architectural heritage. Prague’s historic centre is one of 12 Czech monuments registered in the UNESCO List of World Heritage while another one – the spa of Luhačovice in eastern Moravia – has applied for inscription on the World Heritage List.
