Mapping and protection of the historic and cultural heritage of the Trnovo area

The area of Trnovo has a rich historic and cultural heritage, and thus has great touristic potential. Due to the fact that important locations have never been mapped and tourist signposting is missing, only very few people know about the richness and beauty of this region.

 The area of Trnovo has a rich historic and cultural heritage, and thus  great touristic potential although its full potential is still unknown.

Due to the fact that important locations have never been mapped and tourist signposting is missing, only very few people know about the richness and beauty of this region. These locations are also vulnerable to misuse and destruction.

The aim of the project was to rehabilitate the area’s cultural and historical heritage, including protection and signposting, to collect and systemize information on important locations and share it via various channels e.g.a unique tourist map, website and billboard. 

Also, within the project a publication was published, which for the first time brings together comprehensive information on the area’s cultural, historical and natural heritage and thus not only serves tourism and development planning but also a historical resource for the future generations. 

Worthy of special mention is that a large number of inhabitants of this region volunteered in the project.
