“The study and research potential of the Centre is seen as an appropriate and 
apposite counterbalance to mass tourism which can, moreover, attract the 
widest possible spectrum of fields of study to Český Krumlov to exploit the rich 
offer of the Český Krumlov region.”

Petr Pavelec, project manager and director of the Regional Historic Sites 
Management Office of the National Heritage Institute in České Budějovice

“HLB promotes diverse uses of cultural heritage assets in the community. In 
supporting the creation of the Study Centre, we are deepening our alliance with 
Český Krumlov Castle, based upon mutual respect and support. We look forward 
to bringing our own students there for short courses and study tours.”
