A course on heritage conservation techniques will be organized in the central town of Hue for Vietnamese officials under a collaboration between a local agency and the Embassy of Poland in Vietnam.

During the course lasting more than three weeks, experts from Poland will train local officials who are working at heritage sites across Vietnam on how to conserve objects made of stone, metal, paper and cloth, the Dan Tri news website reported Thursday.

The class will be organized with the aid of US$16,872 from the Polish Embassy under an agreement signed between Ambassador Roman Iwaszkiewicz, and Phan Thanh Hai, director of the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre that day.

The training is part of the cooperation in cultural heritage preservation that the Polish embassy and Thua Thien Hue authorities initiated in 2010.


In 2010 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland sponsored part of the restoration of a stone stele etched with 14 poems of King Tu Duc (1829-1883), the fourth emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945), at the Hue Imperial Academy. The stele was built in 1854.

Last year the ministry also aided the project of preserving the Linh Tinh Gate of the Van Mieu (Temple of Literature) Hue, which was built in 1808.
