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.

The story of a tie

The Museum of Turopolje, Turopolje region, Croatia, was established in 1960 with a purpose to collect, research, preserve, present and promote traditional cultural heritage. The Museum's fundus contains 5500 items that are organized in four thematic collections: archaeological collection, ethnographic collection, art collection and a history collection. The ethnographic collection, the largest and most attractive collection, contains a museum item that intrigues visitors from all over the world, not with its size nor the attractiveness or beauty, but with the universality of symbolism that is associated with the history of its origin and use. This item is locally known as Turopoljska podgutnica (the Turopolje tie) and is considered to be a precursor of a tie – universal communication medium of the modern man. The story of a tie is a journey from local to global and back, a trip in which numerous nations participated and gave their contribution. This story is also an excellent context for the understanding of European values such as the respect for different cultural identities.
