The Preservation of St. Wenceslas Rotunda project led by GEMA ART GROUP won the prestigious Europa Nostra Award
The discovery of the legendary St. Wenceslas Rotunda in the Lesser Town Square (Malostranské náměstí) during the renovation of the Professed House in 2004 is one of the most important events in the history of architecture in the Czech Republic. The most valuable discovery consisted in the remnants of the Vyšehrad type Romanesque tiling. The most urgent works were performed by the restorers immediately after the discovery. However, a general salvage and restoration required a more extensive interdisciplinary project. GEMA ART GROUP a.s. carried out complete construction and restoration works during 2016.

The European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage is awarded by an independent international jury of experts. This year, 29 from a total of 160 applications of the most prominent projects received the prize. The award ceremony will take place on 22 June 2018 in Berlin. GEMA ART GROUP a.s. won the Europa Nostra Award already in 2002 for the exemplary restoration of the Wallenstein Palace in Prague.
