Cultural heritage is everywhere around us, but often remains unnoticed. Nowadays we are used to the fact that buildings are restored, landscapes are protected and certain folk art traditions are preserved in our society. However, cultural heritage changes with new generations: everything that is beautiful is also very vulnerable and needs to be protected, in order to remain accessible in the future.
