Karlstejn Castle awarded

Karlstejn Castle is one of the most visited castles in the Czech republic, situated very near Prague. Now it has received a prestigious award Europa Nostra from European Union.

Europa Nostra is the most significat prize that can be given by the international jury for a great care of historical monuments. Karlstejn deserved this prize for its restoration of the gothic paitings representing saints by Mistr Theodorik. Paintings are located in the chapel of holly cross (Kaple svateho krize), the most sacred place of the castle.

Restoration was very difficult and took almost 20 years. The paitings are now protected by a special air-conditioning that should preserve them for another thousand years or even more.
