KD Čistoća has continued the project of thematic decoration of flowerbeds throughout the city of Rijeka. Last year they had a success with the theme Art Nouveau, and this year they have chosen the topic of industrial heritage taking  inspiration from our web site! YOu can find the flowerbeds all over the city, for example: Jelačić Square, Žabica Square, on the begging of the Milutin Barač Street.

Congratulations to the project manager Bia Gec!

Web portal, which we recommend in general because of the many interesting articles, has published the interview with a member of the Center for Industrial Heritage team – Ivana Golob. The article gives a nice insight on the Center’s previous work, it’s structure and future plans.

We would like to say thank you to Lidija Butković Mićin, the author of the text, for remembering us and recognizing the Center’s efforts.
