The State Chateau Jezeri in the Most region was the first Czech monument to be placed on the list of the seven most endangered monuments in Europe, published by the cultural heritage organization Europa Nostra.
The theatre hall – the representative hall of the Jezeří castle, originally called The Main or also the Oval, is the work of an early Baroque reconstruction of the building, which was completed in 1712.
It was adapted to the Theater at 1802 year, as a part of classicist interior modifications associated largely with a change in the hall function.
The archival research confirmed that this hall served as a theatre until the mid-20th century.
The works will include: professional restoration of all original artistic-craft items:
- restoration and making of replicas of foreclosed railings, incl. gilding and incl. making of a new oak handrail,
- restoration and new production of stucco elements – decorative volutes, mascarons and rosettes with pomegranates,
- restoration of stone window sills and portals.
