Czech Republic – TICCIH National Report

PhDr. Benjamin Fragner, Mgr. Jan Zikmund, Ph.D.

Large industrial compounds are no longer the most typical or the only or most important examples of industrial heritage in the Czech Republic today: With the winding down of industrial production and the restructuring of the economy, especially in the 1990s, the number of such sites has substantially declined, including industrial compounds and structures that were once of considerable importance and occupied an iconic place in the history of Czech industrialisation, such as the textile factories in the Liberec region and Moravia. Mostly just fragments remain of the country’s mining and ironworking complexes, often because the conversion to a new use has been too radical in scope, while elsewhere sites are in danger of being demolished because of their poor technical and structural condition.
