The aim of the research is to analyze the approaches to the problems of functional and structural rehabilitation of historic monumental buildings. The research examined the possibility of changing the destination of a historic building, which involves both functional rehabilitation (rehabilitation and adaptation of thermal energy, acoustics, water repellent and fire protection) and structural rehabilitation, by replacing or partially modifying the building or, if the structural system allows, complete restoration of its parts; local structural restoration (consolidation); structural modification, by introducing adjacent or incidental construction elements, which together with the existing structure can form another structural system and even change the structural concept using the procedures that can increase strength and stability. As a result of the research, it was established that changing the destination of a building involves both functional rehabilitation, by compartmentalizing the new function, rehabilitation and thermal, energy, acoustic, water repellent adaptation and fire safety of the building undergoing reconversion, and structural rehabilitation. When protecting historical monuments, a series of principles and rules must be observed regarding the owners’ interventions, the holders of the administration right, the concessionaires and the tenants.
