/ Historic Preservation
Among other things, architecture is also a field of art.
Since ancient times, the goal set before creators was that architectural objects should affect people, hitting their sense of beauty, and the aesthetic elements of the works created have always been an important part of them.
Over the centuries, the styles prevailing in architecture have changed. Objects with exceptional artistic qualities are part of the cultural heritage and are considered masterpieces. Of course, not every architectural work is considered a masterpiece, and not every work of art is considered a masterpiece.
Cultural heritage significantly shapes the identity, culture, history of individual countries, nations and local and regional communities.
Therefore, cultural heritage should not only be protected, but also properly developed and passed on to future generations.
Cultural heritage is considered to be:
1) monuments: works of architecture, monumental sculpture or painting, elements and structures of archaeological value, inscriptions, caves and groupings of these elements having exceptional universal value from the perspective of history, art or science;
2) ensembles: separate or combined buildings that, due to their architecture, uniformity or integration into the landscape, are of exceptional universal value from the perspective of history, art or science;
3) historic sites: works of man or joint works of man and nature, as well as zones, and archaeological sites of exceptional universal historical, aesthetic, ethnological or anthropological value.
