Abstract

The study focuses on appearance and development of villa gardens which were established in the interwar period in the territory of the Czechoslovak Republic. In the introduction I outlined the historical context, which - to a certain extent - contributed to the development of villa gardens. Furthermore, in the introduction you may find a basic range of the current research work in the field. A special focus is dedicated to archive material retrieval. The field research chapter provides basic information on historical gardens preservation. The facts retrieved from archives and the field research define function, composition and contents of villa gardens. Varied range of information serves as basic literature which will be further exploited while formulating methodology procedures which can be adopted in conservation and maintenance of villa gardens in the period of the First Republic.

Súhrn

Príspevok sa zameriava na vznik a vývoj vilových záhrad, ktoré boli založené v medzivojnovom období na území Československej republiky. V úvode je načrtnutý historický kontext, ktorý - do určitej miery - prispel k vývoju vilových záhrad. V úvode je tiež obsiahnutý základný rámec súčasného stavu vedeckého bádania na tomto poli. Dôraz je zvlášť kladený na získavanie archívnych materiálov. Kapitola pojednávajúca o terénnom výskume poskytuje základné informácie o zachovanosti historických záhrad. Údaje nadobudnuté z archívov a terénny výskum určujú funkciu, kompozíciu a obsah vilových záhrad. V úlohe základnej literatúry je široká škála informácií, ktoré budú neskôr využité pri formulovaní metodologických postupov. Tieto postupy môžu byť zavádzané pre konzerváciu a údržbu vilových záhrad z obdobia Prvej republiky.
