Czech Republic helping to preserve Syria’s cultural heritage


The Czech Republic is to contribute 3 million crowns towards restoring Syria’s war damaged cultural heritage in 2017. Selected items are to be restored at the laboratories of the Czech National Museum, but the money will also be used to finance equipment and restoration work in Syria. Last year the Czech government earmarked 200 million crowns in aid to Syria to be used both for humanitarian aid and other forms of assistance between now and 2019.
