The Landscape for Breeding and Training of Ceremonial Carriage Horses at Kladruby nad Labem is a unique cultural landscape, listed as a National Cultural Monument and since 2019 also as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The project aims to comprehensively document this landscape, which has so far been studied only within partial projects. We will evaluate the historical development of this landscape and determine the main driving factors behind it, focusing on the effect of more than four centuries of horse breeding and training. This knowledge, along with the results of detailed surveys of the landscape’s present-day state and values, will serve as a basis for defining effective methods of its preservation and sustainable management, as well as for its presentation to the public. The outcomes of the project will also provide model approaches to comparable world heritage sites on the nature-culture interface.
