European Dimension

Palaces and Parks of the Central Nadodrze constitute a diversified complex of residential architecture of great artistic value and tourist potential on a European scale. Only a few of them are currently publicly available. The aim of the project is to present European history of the architectural heritage (historical documentation and iconography, full photographic documentation of the current state) for selected objects and to create a tourist route based on them, similar to historical complexes in Western Europe, i.e. the palace and park route in the Central Rhineland and in the Loire valley. The northern region of Lower Silesia was the direct residential neighborhood of Berlin and the historical Polish-German borderland with high political significance, especially in the XVIII c during the personal union of Kingdom of Poland and Saxony. Currently, the Lubuskie voivodship has the highest percentage of ruined monuments in Poland. A large part of them are former residential buildings and surrounding parks. Historical elaboration and digitalization of historic buildings are connected with including them into the wider tourist offer of the region for European public.

ON THE STONE RUG TOWARDS THE FUTURE

Old historical towns along the Adriatic coast are mostly stone-made. The paving is simple, stone-made, yet gives the city a personality, glow and a charm. Palaces are most likely maintained, even guarded, while the paving is not - although the stone is a symbol that gives the city a colour in all its pre-eminence. Stone pavings are unique and unrepeatable, therefore we must maintain and restore them. The stone is a part of the past, therefore we want to pave it’s way to the future.
