Intangible heritage

But there is also so-called intangible heritage.
The UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of the Czech Republic includes
Slovácký verbuňk– a male dance with a prancing character. It is improvised without fixed choreographic elements. Includes chanting of folk songs.
Mardi Gras – In the Frinecko region, the custom of Mardi Gras has been observed since the 19th century, with Mardi Gras circles and masks.
Hawk hunting– This is one of the oldest relationships between humans and animals, lasting more than 4000 years.
King\’s Rides– A folk event whose origins are now unknown. Once practiced throughout the Czech Republic, it is now practiced only in Hana and Slovacko.
Puppetry – This is an important cultural phenomenon. Czech puppetry was widespread until the 19th century.

The current form of UNESCO heritage is of course not definitive. The number of tangible and intangible monuments continues to grow, and we need to consider what local culture should actually mean.
