2022-01-17: Join the Describe a Monument competition! Now you can also write about Slovak monuments[edit]

On 15 January, an editing competition focused on cultural monuments started. Until the end of February you can compete for valuable prizes. All you have to do is enrich the Czech Wikipedia with new articles on cultural heritage! That is, choose a cultural monument from the list, write an article about it and registerit. The jury will then judge the article. Whoever gets the most points wins. Wikipedia is missing thousands of monuments that definitely deserve their own articles. Let's do them justice.
