Český Krumlov celebrates 20 years on the UNESCO List

The year 2012 is the twentieth year of the inscription of the historic centre of Český Krumlov into the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is also the fortieth anniversary of the Convention of World Natural and Cultural Heritage which establishes the status of a monument and natural phenomenon deserving the recognition and protection of UNESCO.

This is an important anniversary for Český Krumlov and the Czech Republic alike and should be used especially for educating and enlightening the citizens of our country and our town.

The project Unesco for the Younger Generation has been prepared for 2012, the organizer and guarantor of which is the Český Krumlov municipality. The project focuses on the younger generation with the goal of acquainting young people with the topic of natural and cultural heritage, with the knowledge of this heritage, and caring for it. The project is primarily focused on education and enlightenment.
