Slavonski Brod starts the realization of the project “House of stools – Slavonian music fairy tale”

first_imgThe City of Slavonski Brod is starting the realization of the 27,4 million kuna project “House of the Tambourine – Slavonian Music Fairy Tale”, which will be co-financed with 23,3 million kuna from EU funds, writes the portal Sbplus.hr.The City of Slavonski Brod submitted to the Brod-Posavina Administrative Department for Communal Economy and Environmental Protection a request for a preliminary acceptability assessment procedure for the ecological network for the reconstruction, rehabilitation and arrangement of the northwestern cavalier of the Brod Fortress. In addition to the reconstruction, rehabilitation and arrangement of the north-western cavalier, the reconstruction of the reconstructed space into the “House of the tambourine – Slavonian musical fairy tale – the house of our notes” will be done.”The building in question is located in the center of the fortress complex of the Brod Fortress in Slavonski Brod. The building of the complex has a massive horseshoe-shaped structure. The purpose of the project is to reconstruct the northwestern cavalier, rehabilitate and restore it, and return it to its original dimensions. After the reconstruction, the space will be given new content and converted into the Tamburitza House – Slavonian music fairy tale.. ”, It is written in the submitted request.By the way, in Slavonski Brod, the Tamburitza Museum operates as unique not only in Croatia but also in the world. But unfortunately in inappropriate conditions, which require as urgent changes as possible in order to be turned into a unique tourist experience for all visitors.The project, worth 30 million kuna, envisages that in a space of about two and a half thousand square meters, in addition to the museum exhibition, there will be a multimedia center, a master workshop and a souvenir shop. Part of the allocated space will consist of a multipurpose hall, archive and documentation center and administrative and storage spaces. By transforming a part of the Fortress into an Interactive Creative Center dedicated to traditional tamburitza music and a traditional musical instrument, the space would be protected from further deterioration, and then – gradually – connected to the urban and cultural fabric of the city. Later programs should turn it into a real tourist attraction and a first-class tourist experience for visitors from both Croatia and abroad.Source: Sbplus.hrlast_img read more
