The Czech Republic has been lucky enough to have 14 tangible and 7 intangible cultural monuments listed on UNESCO World Heritage list. We have picked the most interesting ones from both categories, where ICOM member institutions unite, support, and enhance the culture heritage our country has to offer. You can experience how museums help to keep the traditions alive and how the beauty of the tangible heritage is preserved with their support.
