The main goal of the Baroque Region of Bohemia Bavaria project is to increase the value and connect the common cultural heritage of the Bavarian and Pilsen regions.

Part of the project are the neighboring regions of Upper Franconia, Upper Palatinate, Lower Bavaria on the Bavarian side and West Bohemia with the Pilsen and Karlovy Vary regions on the Czech side, which have great cultural and historical potential with their cultural baroque heritage. The project aims to connect the cross-border aspect of Baroque monuments as a common cultural heritage.

The Baroque period in this area is characterized by cultural and historical parallels: trade, history, piety and art, these are the same between 1619 and 1745 in Bohemia and Bavaria. Master builders, architects and artists worked on both sides, and their cross-border works are proof of that. 

The aim of the project is to revive cross-border cultural exchange, significantly increase cultural and tourist activity, connect monuments and events, interest the young generation, discover hidden baroque treasures and revive the entire era with innovative contributions.
