The Association for the Promotion of Altranstädt Castle (Germany), a ENPP member, was awarded with the prize “With soul and heart for Saxony” for its volunteer work for the recovery and animation of that important German historical monument, in which the so-called “Peace of Altranstädt” was signed during the Great Northern War (1700-1721) between the Russian Tsarist Empire and the Kingdom of Sweden.
The award (“Mit Herzblut für Sachsen” in German) was presented to the Association on 1 December by the Minister of State of Saxony, Mr. Michael Kretschmer.
The achievement of this award was received with great enthusiasm by the members of the Association who expressed their willingness to continue this work, within Germany and within the framework of the European Network of Places of Peace.
