This year the winner is the historical town Brtnice (Czech Republic), REACH associate partner.

Award appreciates the town, which was most successful in implementation of the Program of regeneration of urban heritage reservations and zones in which are amalgamated finances from various donors – public/ state, community and private funding.

The town was severely hit by rain and flood in May 2018, therefore the award obtained, which brings one million crowns to the city’s treasure, represents a very important resource for the reconstruction of the architectural heritage and an opportunity that must certainly be appreciated by the community.

Congratulations  to the town and its Mayor Miroslava Švaříčková!
