INSPIRATION

Industrial heritage of Trbovlje, Slovenska Bistrica, Labin and Rijeka through development of cultural tourism

Main goal of the INSPIRACIJA (INSPIRATION) project is to encourage revitalisation of towns rich with industrial heritage in Slovenia and Croatia – Trbovlje, Slovenska Bistrica, Labin and Rijeka – by creating new tourist content to reanimate once active industrial facilities. The four project towns sharing rich industrial history are main locations of the new cross-border tourist route, taking the visitor from the sawmills and mills of Pohorje, via Trbovlje and Labin mines all the way to Rijeka port.

A series of new cultural events and tourist products is to be developed in the framework of the project, namely the Festival of industrial heritage, inviting the visitors to discover industrial heritage in all four towns. Four information centres for interpretation of industrial heritage are also to be set up as part of the project in Trbovlje, Slovenska Bistrica, Labin and Rijeka, where the heritage is going to be presented with a modern innovative method - new content known as Escape Room.


Results of the project are to be presented at the Industry biennale in the framework of the Rijeka – European Capital of Culture 2020 project.
