MONUMENTALIZED EARLY IRON AGE LANDSCAPES IN THE DANUBE REGION
Monumentalized Early Iron Age Landscapes in the Danube River Basin (acronym: Iron-Age-Danube) was an Interreg DTP project co-funded by European regional development fund that lasted from January 2017 to September 2019.
Project partnership gathered 20 partners from 5 European countries involved in the European Strategy for the Danube Region with the common goal aimed to research, protection and touristic use of the most important Iron Age Landscapes in Austria (AT), Croatia (CRO), Hungary (HU), Slovakia (SVK) and Slovenia (SI), among them the micro-regions of Großklein (AT), Strettweg (AT), Jalžabet (CRO), Kaptol (CRO), Poštela (SI), DolenjskeToplice (SI), Százhalombatta (HU), Süttő (HU) and Sopron (HU).
Routes4U is a joint programme between the Council of Europe and the European Union to enhance regional development in the Adriatic-Ionian, the Alpine, the Baltic Sea and the Danube macro-regions through cultural routes, heritage policies and practices. In line with the Faro Convention (Council of Europe, 2005), the project also promotes the importance of local citizens and their strong connection with their heritage in the creation of a common European narrative.
VIRTUAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL LANDSCAPES OF THE DANUBE REGION
Based on a strong and expanded network established during the Iron Age Danube Project, Danube´s Archaeological eLandscapes is a Interreg DTP project co-funded by ERDF and IPA II that started in July 2020. Project's major goal is to make the archaeological heritage, especially archaeological landscapes of the Danube region, regionally, nationally and internationally more visible and thereby more attractive for its integration into sustainable cultural tourism. The backbone of this task are the major museums of the region, setting their focus also beyond their own premises, i.e. in the most prominent archaeological landscapes of the Danube region. By involving state-of-the-art virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies the museums, which are visited by the mainstream of tourists, will encourage the visitors to experience the heritage in its original landscapes not only in their own country, but also in countries of other partners.
