Attempts to Include the Pažaislis Convent in the UNESCO World Heritage List


2006.08.24

The Government has approved of the 2006-2010 Programme of the Preservation of Pažaislis Camaldoli Convent Ensemble – the outstanding monument of baroque architecture of Lithuania – that is aimed at ensuring the management of the ensemble, as well as adaptation of the ensemble to the tourism needs and its presentation to the public of Lithuania and the world.

The programme seeks that the Pažaislis Camaldoli Convent Ensemble is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

 This year it is planned to set up projects for preservation of the convent ensemble and for its adaptation to the tourism needs in order to get aid of the EEA Financial Mechanism. In 2007, the applied research of the convent ensemble and its territory and the feasibility study of the adaptation of the convent ensemble to the tourism needs will be carried out. Similarly, the analysis of the value of the convent ensemble and the assessment under the requirements of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee will be performed. The year 2007 to 2010 will see the work related to the management of the Pažaislis Camaldoli Convent Ensemble and publishing of tourist information instruments.

 The programme implementation measures will be financed from the general appropriations and other legally obtained funds of ministries and bodies taking part in the implementation of this programme.
