Objective of the Project

The project directly builds up on a completed project of interior restoration that was funded within the previous programme period of Norway Grants. Current state of the equipment in the church interior requires prompt continuation of restoration of remaining wooden furniture otherwise there is a real danger of attack of newly restored furniture by woodworm. The state of some parts of not restorated furniture is disastrous. There is a wooden mass completely damaged by woodworm larvae and there is a danger that some parts will break off at the slightest impulse. The aim of the project is to finish the restoration and to save remaining wooden furniture inside the pilgrimage church and to meet sustainability conditions of EEA and Norway Grants of first phase of the implemented project "Restoration inside the pilgrimage church of the Virgin Mary on Chlumek in Luže" and to conserve cultural monument for other generations.
