The Czech Republic, situated in the heart of Europe, and comprising the historic regions of Bohemia, Moravia and Czech Silesia has a cultural legacy of international significance, with twelve UNESCO-listed sites. This small country has the largest concentration of great houses and palaces in Europe, built by Czech Renaissance magnates and the wealthy nobility of the Habsburg Empire, while the castles that are such a dramatic feature of the landscape reflect Bohemia's power and influence in the Middle Ages.
We are able to give small grants to a variety of projects and welcome applications from owners of historic buildings, gardens and parks in the Czech Republic. These can be privately owned, or may belong to the State or local municipality. Please tell us about the cultural, historical and educational importance of your property, and the extent of public access. Outline what funds you need and what you would wish to do with the help or money. Grants are given subject to certain conditions, which we can forwarded by request.
