Abstract (in English)

Today we can state with certainty that no other age as this postwar period has had such developed cultural-historic heritage protection doctrine, owing to the desire to save and emphasise its values. Despite this, we are witness of the fact that many interventions do not comply with the existing theory. There are frequent reconstructions of old buildings, although the Venice Charter excludes them à priori. Facsimiles are created which in majority of cases are not "real" since they are not faithful copies of that which once existed.
