The interwar Silistra was surrounded by no borders lines and was centrally located as a regional centre. However, being a part of less developed Romanian territory, no significant signs of urban development have been observed during this period.
The "Case study 5: Silistra, Bulgaria" is a part of chapter “2 — Learning from the past — Embracing Heritage”.

Item Type:Book Section
Additional Information:The Danube is the most international and multicultural river on Earth, the main connection for cultures in Central Europe and the Balkans, but also a spatial system fragmented by borders in need to reconnect in its identity. The natural wonders of this river and the capital cities on its shores usually get all the attention, but it is the smaller towns, often neglected in peripheral situations, that still today hold the multicultural essence of the Danubian Region. With this Atlas compiled by the DANUrB partnership our intention is to present urban communities along the Danube River which share similar tangible and intangible heritage in their local identities. One of the main aims of the DANUrB INTERREG Project is the reactivation of underused cultural heritage and resources in shrinking settlements of Danube river’s peripheral and border regions in order to make them more attractive again.
