Restoration of the “Klementinum” National Cultural Monument (one of the largest Baroque set of buildings in Europe) is a long-term project divided into three stages. We were involved, for example, in the restoration of “Křižovnická chodba” or the “Chapel of St. Jan Nepomucký”. An extensive archaeological survey was carried out throughout the construction. During this survey more than a thousand years old fragments were discovered. The demolition of unsuitable modern structures was followed by the stabilization of the vaults, installation of a lift and of technical building services. Many restoration teams worked under the supervision of conservationists to restore restoration of frescas, stuccoes, statues and decoration of facades and interiors.
