The six-century-old Vranduk Fortress has stepped in the 21st century through the "Fortress reinvented" project. Together with four fortresses from the region, it will be presented to the visitors through modern technologies.
The project is implemented by four cities: Šibenik, Klis, Herceg Novi and Zenica, whose heritage lies in their fortresses, with the aim of increasing the sustainability and improving the tourism offer by promoting cultural heritage.
Director of the Zenica City Museum, Adnadin Jašarević told FENA that in this way, by using modern technologies, the heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina would surely be presented in the best possible way.
He explains that the project focuses on the development of digital content in fortresses. The Museum of the City of Zenica has already installed new replicas of clothes, weapons, pottery, furniture in the fortress.
He says that Vranduk records a significant number of visits, but it can do even better. He believes that digitalization will contribute to this but he also hopes for other projects to improve the road infrastructure.
"Our heritage has been neglected because the museum professionals have never kept up with the times, so now we have to span and jump the period of 600 years to the 21st century so that our heritage could live in the future," said Jašarević.
The "Fortress reinvented" project is worth 1.310.232 euros, and the funds have been secured under the Interreg Cross-Border Cooperation program. The project began in May 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of March 2019.
