cultural heritage

Description of Cultural Heritage sites in the DRB; their origin and history, existing threats, potential for sustainable tourism or other human activities; Cultural heritage may be defined as the entire corpus of material signs - either artistic or symbolic - handed on by the past to each culture and, therefore, to the whole of humankind (UNESCO, 25 C/4, 1989, p.57).        
Cultural Heritage is an expression of the ways of living developed by a community and passed on from generation to generation, including customs, practices, places, objects, artistic expressions and values. Cultural Heritage is often expressed as either Intangible or Tangible Cultural Heritage (ICOMOS, 2002).

The presentation of cultural heritage through cultural routes and itineraries is in line with the preferences of the Strategy of the tourism development in the Republic of Serbia. Cultural (thematic) routes are presented as the priority axis of the national strategy of tourism development. They are represented in a long list of proposed, preliminary and completed projects based on the creation and promotion of cultural and thematic routes in this region.

This article deals with archaeological investigations at Schela Cladovei, a prehistoric site in the Iran Gate section of the Danube. The animal bones stem from the Meso- and Neolithics as well as from the Iron Age. Mammals, birds and fish have been found in varying quantities in these periods. An increase of domestic animals was found for the Neolithics.

The Danube region (DR) disposes of a rich natural and cultural heritage. Recent projects (e.g. Danube:Future) stress its potential for sustainable development. However, cooperation between local and regional knowledge centers to investigate the role of such heritage as an asset of identity and sustainable development as well as interaction with stakeholders remains weak. More focused commitment of knowledge centres incl. joint research and publication as strategic target of EUSDR is needed.  

The general objective of the project is to create a common database as decision support tool based on a long-term approach. Based on the crucial past experience, it will help establish ecological corridors as an excellent example of sustainable future management. 

The project “Former Socialist Countries Open their Past to Europe” (SCOPE) focuses on gathering cultural heritage (CH) in the form of documents and personal testimonies from the former socialist countries (FSC) in the Danube Region. The main goals are to create an extensive database (DB) of the publicly available and newly collected documents, and to develop a user-friendly application for data search and analysis. The collection of available documents will be examined by group of historians to select significant CH movements on a specific geographical area.

ural areas in the Danube Region face economic, societal, cultural and environmental challenges. They are rich in diverse cultural heritage which is often neglected and not taken into consideration as a potential resource for development. Wood resources form an integral part of tangible and intangible cultural heritage. As an environmentally friendly material, wood can play an important role in sustainable development. Valorization of wood traditions according to present needs may help to mitigate and overcome problems of rural areas.

The objective of ArchaeoGates project is to identify the cultural sites submerged under the Danube, to collect and process the data to develop a database (Danube River Submerged Heritage D.A.R.S.H.), with the possibility to extend it to include other river basins and/or lakes. The equipment used in the implementation of the project are side-scan sonar, seismic radar, scuba diver recognitions.
