Restoration of Cultural Monuments (Activity 1)
Subject of this activity is the restoration of the cultural monument – historical park in Lednické Rovne that was built at the end of the 18th century. In the park exterior the glass art works will be installed. These works will be created during the International Glass symposium RONA 2020 (activity nr. 3) by three Norwegian artists. Norwegian artist Æsa Björk will work on large glass art work that will be placed on hypodrome and two other Norwegian artists will produce two smaller pieces of glass art works that will be installed in line with the park restoration concept. The park restoration will solve also the park accessibility for disabled visitors. During reconstruction works the following will be executed in the park: the pathways networks, hypodrome, tree felling and planting of the new trees, the new garden equipment will be placed, the new rest areas will be created. Excavation and terrain works will be supervised by Regional Monuments Board. In case of archaeological finding the archaeological research must follow. Within the park revitalization from the total amount of trees 2343,165 pieces will be cut down at the first stage. These were diagnosed at the moment of inventarization as trees with low value. This measure is acute and URGENT. Planting of 220 new trees will follow. These will complement missing tree age groups and will be suitably set in the park composition. This measure will help to extent the life span of the trees in the entire park. The work of local craftsmen will be also incorporated in the project by production of one entry gate locally. Information system with QR codes will be installed in the park. This counts to one of the most modern solution in terms of information access for the park visitors. The visitors will be able to get the useful and interesting information about the park. QR codes will be on the stickers placed on the architectonic objects/pieces and on information boards as well.
As part of this activity, one permanent employee will be employed to maintain the greenery in the historical park. This working position will be required permanently.
