THE START OF AN EXTENSIVE REFURBISHMENT AT THE CHÂTEAU OF UHERČICE
In 2011 The Friends of Czech Heritage secured funding to stop the collapse of the ceiling in this spectacular hall, among other projects that we have carried out there since 2008. The complex is a Renaissance château with Baroque and Neo-Classical modifications, comprising five courtyards including ceremonial, residential and agricultural areas, walled gardens and a park. After severe devastation, particularly when it functioned as a military base, it is undergoing a long-term reconstruction with funds from the Czech Ministry of Regional Development and the European Union.
