The Český Krumlov Heritage Association (Památkářská obec českokrumlovská - POČ) is an occupationally special civil association concentrated on the preservation of cultural heritage and nature.

It has been operating informally since 1990, with official registration at the Ministry of the Interior of the ČR since 1994. POČ membership is conditional on occupational activity in the branches which are immediately related to the care of monuments or to nature preservation. Currently it associates specialists in these branches :

archive maintenance
history of art
historical pottery
preservation of monuments
civil engineering
restoration of paintings
restoration of sculptures
historical exploration of buildings
technology of monument restoration

POČ operates mainly in the town and district of Český Krumlov; it is engaged, however, in some weightier cases of endangered cultural values in the entire Czech Republic.

From the significant activities of surregional importance in the past years we can name for example the successful defence of Santini Pilgrimage Area on Zelená Hora at Žďár nad Sázavou against a pseudo-historical reconstruction of the cloister, criticising for pseudo-historical reconstruction of the Castle Špilberk in Brno or the failure to preserve the Renaissance Building (Castle No. 177 - Renaissance House) at the Castle of Český Krumlov.
