November the 25th, 2020 – The Istrian city of Rovinj has a lot to boast of when it comes to attractions, but the Rovinj Batana Eco-Museum is certainly high on the list. Works on its reconstruction are now in full swing.
As Morski writes on the 24th of November, 2020, works on the reconstruction and general ”doing up” of the Rovinj Batana Eco-Museum are now in progress. Construction work on the renovation of the building began back in November 2019, before the coronavirus pandemic struck, and to date, the installation of new electrical installations, multimedia installations, insulation and plumbing has been completed.
The project itself is worth about two million kuna in total, and part of the equipment and part of the multimedia solutions were financed from the aforementioned amount through the “Culturecovery interreg centraleurope” project, while through the project “Arca Adriatica interreg Italy-Croatia” the graphic design and part of the museum’s new multimedia are being financed.
The renovation is being partly co-financed by the Croatian Ministry of Culture and a loan to cover, among other things, the costs of arranging the Rovinj Batana Eco-Museum’s interpretation centre and the new space in Arno Longo Street, for which the project and obtaining the necessary permits, are drawing to a close and therefore work should begin soon.
The Rovinj Batana Eco-Museum should reopen its doors to visitors at the end of June next year, and the new exhibition will tell the story of Batana and Rovinj-Rovigno in a modern and inspiring way, pushing its own boundaries and opening new horisons to please visitors from across the world.
