Respect the History („Szanuj Dzieje”) - Good Practice
Archaeological monuments constitute the lowest, underground floor of the contemporary cultural landscape, where we can find the sources and reasons for later transformations. In Wolin land, there are rich knowledge resources about history, culture and everyday life in the early medieval port city are a fragile matter and are constantly exposed to irretrievable destruction. It is our obligation to preserve this substance and secure it for the future generations. We have to remember that the cultural inheritance can’t be restored – once destroyed is gone forever.
What are the good practices?

If the construction works are conducted without required permit or in a manner incompliant with the scope and conditions of the permit, investor shall be subject to a fine and the Provincial Conservator has the right to order restoration of the monument to its previous condition at the expense of the perpetrator.
