A project was presented which will invest 30 million kuna in existing and new facilities on Medvednica. Medvednica Nature Park within the project “Improvement of visitor capacity for the purpose of sustainable management of the Medvednica Nature Park” will finally be arranged by the long-awaited “Medvedgrad Visitor Center”. The idea of arranging a Visitor Center in Medvedgrad has existed since the Public Institution “Nature Park Medvednica” took over Medvedgrad in mid-2010. Until the seventies of the last century, Medvedgrad was left to decay, when archaeological research of the site began. During the nineties, Medvedgrad was renovated and given its present appearance. However, only with the withdrawal of funds from the EU, the opportunity was realized to finally establish a Visitor Center within Medvedgrad. The project includes the establishment of a visitor center in the medieval town of Medvedgrad and the upgrade of the sustainable visitor offer of the Park. The center will contain an information center with a souvenir shop and a toilet – reception and information about Parr, a modern multifunctional hall – for professional meetings, presentations and educational workshops, an open-air central square – for various events, a catering facility and multimedia exhibitions – interpretation of mysterious the story of the mountain and man and the nature that surrounds itPhoto: PP MedvednicaThe main facilities of the Medvedgrad Visitor Center will be located at three locations in Medvedgrad. Thus, for example, in the South Tower there will be a permanent exhibition: “In the Kingdom of Ancient Forests”, and on the crown of the South Tower there will be a Lookout Tower. In the area of the Grand Palace, there will be a permanent exhibition of the exhibition “Enchanted History”, but also a multifunctional hall and a catering space.In addition to arranging the Visitor Center, the project also envisages arranging bicycle routes, signalization within the boundaries of the Park and enriching the educational and interpretive offer by designing a series of programs.The project “Improvement of visitor capacity for the purpose of sustainable management of the Medvednica Nature Park” was contracted within the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion. The total value of the project is HRK 37.726.252,75, of which HRK 29.695.351,77 is the total eligible cost. The project is co-financed by the European Union with HRK 24.223.502,00 in grants from the European Regional Development Fund and the Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency with HRK 2.921.296,22.
