New National Cultural Monuments

The Ministry of Culture was established in 1969 during the days of Czechoslovakia.  The ministry is responsible for art, cultural monuments, the affairs of churches and religious societies, and legal regulations pertaining to television and radio.

Brno's Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary

Eight historic buildings have been designated as národní kulturní památky (NKP), national cultural monuments.  Effective 1 July 2023, these eight landmarks will have the highest level of state protection.  

 Half of them are located in South Moravia and two of these four are right here in Brno.

  • Augustinian Monastery in Pivona (Pilsen Regoin)
  • Jezeří Castle with Arboretum (Ústí Region)
  • Augustinian Monastery in Roudnice nad Labem (Ústí Region)
  • Veveří Castle (South Moravia Region)
  • Augustinian Monastery with the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in Staré Brno (South Moravia Region)
  • Moravský Krumlov Castle (South Moravia Region)
  • Rosice Castle (South Moravia Region)
  • Plumlov Castle (Olomouc Region)

Moravský Krumlov has been on my list of places to visit for a long time because I have yet to see the Slav Epoch which is on display at the castle.  Now I've got another reason to go.
