The fourth annual European Heritage Heads Forum, held on 27-29 May 2009 in Vienna and Bratislava, was attended by several score participants – representatives of 37 European countries. The choice of two such closely located European capitals intended to demonstrate the significant impact exerted on the history of their joint cultural landscape by the post-World War II division of this region into two separate political zones. This fact affected the fate of numerous historical monuments, mentioned in the presentations and discussions. The leitmotif of the Forum was the dynamic changes transpiring within the cultural space of Europe and the impact of the global economic crisis upon the state of the preservation of the cultural heritage and its future. Numerous papers focused on the administration of the cultural heritage and the financing of conservation. A presentation of assorted systems of monument protection in selected countries comprised an important part of the conference. The next meeting will take place in 2010 in France.
