THE CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL INHERITANCE IN THE COUNTY "PRIMORSKO -GORANSKA"

[Trsat - the castle] The territory of the County Primorsko-goranska is characterized by a multitude of diversity shown in natural and geographic details, structure of settlements, cultural identity, the way of living and working of autochtone inhabitants and specially in the richness of the historical buildings inheritance. Exactly such a diversuty is valuable in this area.

An obligation exists to protect in a appropriate way and use carefully this inherited fortune and to manage the natural environment with this in mind.

A deep crisis holding smaller and rural settlements after the 2nd World War seized also the actual territory of this county, characterised by greater migration and reduction of the number of inhabitants as a result of the political situation and to a great extent also by the economic policy with the tendency to bigger administrative and economic centres. Such situation had a bigger impact on small historical urban centres, their economic power through centuries connected to their rural environment. Rural residents emigrated and such small urban centres lost their economic foundation and progress possibility.

Abandoned and neglected building fund of historical settlements deteriorates for more than five decades, loosing also his economic value. Priceless cultural and historical values created through centuries, degrade caused by such ignorant behaviour but did not lose their basic worthiness til today.

Rare are spaces spared by destructive behaviour of men. All human activities are altering the condition of natural surroundings, disturbing often the natural harmony, accelerating the degradation or totally destroying all qualities, characterised by the work of men through centuries.

[Plazza Adamich] We suppose that today exist in the territory of this county besides 220 already registered monuments around 820 known and yet not fully investigated settlements, archeological sites and particular buildings with some characteristics of cultural or monumental inheritance.

There was a number of attempts to revive such settlements but without satisfactory results,caused by more or less spontaneous programs without a carefully selected commitment.

It is a direct danger for some areas from uncontrolled excessive development, unsuitable sites for different content, nonadequate traffic solutions, touristic premises not suitable for real needs and similar actions. All such spatial confrontations induce inevitable conflicts if not ended in time.

The aim of the Department for area planning and for the human environment protection is because of all this to develop in common with other relevant subjects a plan and a program to revitalise the cultural and historical inheritance in the area of the county and to offer this program to the public.
