Within the project “Heritage Walks & Talks”, we are developing a new cultural and tourist product that will be at disposal to individual tourists as well as travelers in groups.
This tourist product is designed as a walk through the heritage of a certain location, and it will be at disposal for using when we want to get acquainted with the cultural and historical heritage of the Western Balkans, a heritage that is still modestly presented by local communities and which is still unknown for the visitors.
We take you through monuments originating from World War II, through the Imperial palaces and ancient settlements, walking all the way to prehistoric settlements with beautiful landscapes.
Connect with the culture of pre historical site Lepenski Vir on the Danube river, with antiquity on Ohrid and Gamzigrad near Zajecar, as well as with the medieval fortress Svač near the lake Šas in Ulcinj. Feel the magnitude and significance of the architectural masterpieces of the monuments on Bubanj in Nis, Barutana near Podgorica, and others in Prilep or Leskovac.
