Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


Within the program "Europäische Territoriale Zusammenarbeit" (ETZ) a bilateral austrian - slovenian design competition has been conducted in 2008 which aimed at bringing the districts of Bad Radkersburg and Gornja Radgona back together again. Due to political circumstances Gornja Radgona and Bad Radkersburg, a fused urban organism until the First World War, are today two separate cities. In the united Europe the ETZ project Skupaj offered the chance to highlight the similarities between the cities and to push forward the long-term development of the reunited city and the surrounding region in terms of their complementary nature and different activities. The project and the implementation of the activities foster that the cities can emphasize their common roots and shared values and introduce themselves as reunited city.

After the project’s completion the cities will be connected landscape-architecturally and reunited spatially via their city gates. The objective was the joint spatial and urban planning with an immediate impact on the natural and urban areas along the Mur. Residents and visitors can then get in direct contact with the river. Thus the river serves as an important development potential of the demographically vulnerable region.
