Historical Monuments, Preservation of: The preservation and restoration of monuments and objects of historical and artistic importance are incumbent on the owner of a property; they are, however, eligible for subsidies by public authorities (state, provinces, municipalities), without any legal obligation to this effect on the part of the authorities. During the past decades a considerable part of the monuments in Austria have been restored and often adapted to new uses. Preservation and re-development of town-scapes and urban architectural ensembles have also been carried out.
