The group of 25 students from the 4th and 5th year of the Integrated Academic Studies of Architecture and staff from the Master course M06-Urbanism Studio at the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade attended the 3rd national DANUrB – DANube Urban Brand student workshop in Smederevo in February 26, 2019.

This was a one-day on-site workshop. All participants from Belgrade visited several important locations in Smederevo and met local stakeholders, with whom they started the last phase of DANUrB research considering the strategic development of the city.

During the workshop, students and their supervisors visited the city hall, where an introductory discussion about local strategic projects was held, National museum of Smederevo, Smederevo Fortress, old city core and “Želvoz” tourist site in the western quarter of Jugovo, as a potential urban regeneration area.

Project: DANUrB – DANube Urban Brand

DANUrB – DANube Urban Brand – a regional network building through tourism and education to strengthen the “Danube” cultural identity and solidarity

Cultural network aims to strengthen the Danube regional cultural identity and to create a common brand by fostering transnational cultural ties between the settlements along the Danube, and by exploring the unused or hidden cultural and social capital resources for a better economic and cultural return. The main goal of the project is to create a comprehensive spatio-cultural network, a “Danube Sultural Promenade” connecting all communities along the river, unifying these into one tourism destination brand, offering thematic routes and developing possibilities that can increase the number of visitors and can prolong their stay in the region.

Project partners – relevant universities, research and development centres, regional municipalities, cultural NGOs, tourism boards and professional market based agencies – will create a network and common platform to work along a sustainable cultural and tourism strategy, proving that a common Danube urban brand can bring social and economic benefits at once. Very important in this process is that international knowledge and practice will be implemented in local conditions.
