Mission and Objectives: 

The mission of the National Trust of Slovakia is to secure permanent protection and sustainable use of historic environment - heritage sites, objects of great values, and sites of natural beauty for the benefit of Slovakia and its people. Our aim is to support the conservation of the historic environment which we understand as all the processes of looking after a place so as to retain its cultural significance which one can defined as meaning the aesthetic, historic, scientific, social or spiritual value for past, present and future generations. Cultural significance is embodied in the place itself, its fabric, setting, use, associations, meanings, records, related places, people and objects and it may change as a result of the continuing history of the place.
