Case Interpretation Study of Cultural Heritage in Visnova

Abstract: The area of current Frydlant has been facing many significant movements regarding provincial and state borders together with individual administrative districts during the last eight centuries. The Frydlant region’s territory was often subjected to changes in the Middle Ages, as well as in the modern times. These changes in territorial domination also represented shifts in provincial borders. The pilot example is a cultural monument with a “little popular tourist” interest in the specific location, containing bipolar characteristics, i.e. a cultural monument that has features which are almost unattractive for the community and at the same time little attractive for local and foreign tourists. So, the innovative CHI - Cultural Heritage Interpretation method will be applied with the objective to create a draft of the Imaging plan. Traditional structure of a rural countryside due to its importance, gives to Jizerske Hory the need for promotion through tourism complementing the existing tourism in the rural border area. This paper will utilise some principles of the so-called Grounded theory and method associated with it including the “snowball” principle. The individual parts of the Imaging plan will result in new outcomes to protect and develop cultural heritage in border regions that have been suffering from destruction, neglect or lack of maintenance since the WW2. These outcomes will include appropriate drafts not only to maintain or temporarily preserve traditional buildings in these areas but also to identify suitable solutions to achieve sustainability of rural tourist destinations in the absence of financial support. Only after traditional rural buildings are promoted as architectural monuments, they may become tourist attractions and provide a basis for competition among rural tourist destinations and other historic sights attracting tourists.
