The main phenomenon of the Medvednica Nature Park is the Sljeme forest, but much more is coming to Medvedgrad, and a museological exhibition of biodiversity will be placed in the south tower.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 9th of June, 2020, back in November 2018, the most demanding and largest project for the reconstruction of Medvedgrad began. The Visitor Centre and other parts of its infrastructure are now slowly coming together and being properly arranged. The project is worth almost 30 million kuna, and more than 80 percent of that enormous figure came from European Union (EU) funds, writes HRT.
After several renovations in the past, Medvedgrad is getting a new look once again.
”Everything we found there, we tried to reconstruct in such a way that it remains in the same volume and in the same form, and everything we added we tried to make sure it appeared visibly added,” explained designer Ivo Vranjican.
Elegant benches made of strong Slavonian oak, glass on the lookout so as not to spoil the view of the outlines of the nearby City of Zagreb, a multimedia hall and a theatre of light and shadow – these are the novelties that will come to be in beautiful Medvedgrad.
”We will also set up a certain multimedia exhibition, we will have space for certain conferences and workshops, and downstairs there is a catering facility that we hope to rent out to someone who can deal with that,” noted Marina Popijac, the director of PP Medvednica (Medvednica Nature Park).
”Everything is quite technologically modern, so there will be some exhibits that will be performed in a way that are multimedia and active in their essence, so I think it will be very interesting for visitors,” said Andrea Kostelic, the director of promotion, education and interpretation.
As previously touched on, the main phenomenon of the Medvednica Nature Park is the beautiful, rich Sljeme forest, and a museological exhibition of biodiversity will be placed in the south tower to give it even more of an extra edge.
The first visitors are expected at the end of the year.
