Project Idea

Exploration and restoration of stone and stucco elements.

The Restoration Project of the Church of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary involves conservation and restoration works with the aim to protect and preserve this cultural heritage for future generations. The requirement of this project is stressed by the alarming technical condition of the roof trusses and cladding of both towers and extensive damage to the exterior facades, this also includes various façade elements requiring immediate restoration. Is not possible to retain the monument for future generations unless the above has been actioned. This project is a follow up on the works conducted in 2009-2011 through the use of EEA Fund under the name "Restoration of the Interior of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary in Šternberk". Further steps involve using a technology such as the remote-controlled drones to professionally monitor and analyse the stone and stucco elements with the focus on the necessary restoration works.
