TYPES OF CULTURAL TREASURES

Others we can move, and can hold in our hand. They are called movable cultural heritage. They are items from the daily life of the people, who lived before you and me – artfully painted vases or small statues. They can be precious hand-written books or icons. Our ancestors also left us some fine expensive items – gold jewellery, vessels and masks. Usually such treasures are kept in the museums. Some of them, however, must be placed at their original place – for example the icons in the church, because only there they can reveal their full beauty and significance.
