Vidin inherited a significant built stock from socialist time – public service areas doubled by area, retail and regional trade sites tripled, while sports and leisure zones territorially increased nearly four times. However, since the beginning of the post-socialist transition, the population
significantly contracted.
The "Case study 4: Vidin, Bulgaria" is a part of chapter "04 — Visions for Tomorrow".

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.
