Details of program Architectural and artistic monuments are unique and irreplaceable historical objects. They are the material manifestations of craftsmanship and technical expertise from the past and are thus archives of information in the broadest sense of the word. They therefore hold great significance as objects that create identity on the regional, national and international level. Monument preservation is a part of the public service whose mission is to collect information on cultural heritage objects, assess and appraise them, and ensure that they are handled and managed properly. Because activities here also include research into the history of such objects, their significance in the present and their preservation for the future, monument preservation also plays an important role in the design of the environments we live in; that means it involves a certain amount of social responsibility as well.
