Halid Lepan

Intern from November 2013 to July 2014

Due to my similar field of study (archaeology), my internship in the CHwB has contributed to a better understanding of the situation regarding cultural heritage in Bosnia and Herzegovina, especially the archaeological heritage.  The actual internship in CHwB has helped me get a scholarship for further education outside Bosnia and Herzegovina.

I think that cultural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina is the ‘identity card’ of the country as well as of each individual who lives in it. Because of the diversity and richness of our cultural heritage, I think it is important to keep telling that it belongs to everyone who is living and those who will live.

Vanja Vuković

Employee from June 2014 to September 2015

Working for CHwB expanded my knowledge of finance, but I was able to gain knowledge about the processes of preservation and restoration of cultural heritage monuments, as well as a broader understanding of the issues regarding the protection of cultural monuments in BiH.

Conservation and protection of cultural heritage contributes to preserving the identity of people living in BiH and also helps create a better image of our country– one that is known for its many cultural monuments and not just by conflict and destruction, which is unfortunately often emphasized.

Boris Trapara

Intern from August 2014 to February 2015

In CHwB I worked on various projects in the field of protection and promotion of cultural heritage, through which I gained a lot of new skills and met a lot of professionals in the field of heritage protection. Thanks to my involvement in CHwB, I had the opportunity to visit Uppsala University and meet the Royal Swedish architect, Andreas Heymowski.

The diverse layers of our country’s heritage is a good example of universal historical, cultural and monumental value and as such, represents an inexhaustible source of knowledge and inspiration that we preserve for future generations.
