Internet Memorial to the Citizens of Novo mesto 1745

With this Internet Memorial
we are expressing thanks to those citizens of Novo mesto,
who in 1745 had a vision and courage
to suggest the Empress Maria Theresa
to have Gymnasium in Novo mesto.

On August 8, 1746, Empress Maria Theresa
signed a Founding Charter of the Novo mesto Gymnasium with public rights –
the first in the Habsburg monarchy.

Thankful Novo mesto Citizens

Published on April 7 – the Holiday of the City Municipality of Novo mesto
