02-08-2016

The national stud farm in Kladruby nad Labem, Central Bohemia is planning to apply for inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List in September next year, the deputy governor of the Pardubice Region, Roman Línek, told the Czech News Agency. Following the application there will be a two- or three-year process before the stud farm learns whether it has been accorded the prestigious status. Founded in 1579, the Kladruby stud is known for its large Kladruber horses, one of the oldest breeds in the world.
