See the project for more details HERE In Slavonski Brod, a contract was signed for the execution of works on the reconstruction of the northern part of the western cavalier of the Brod Fortress for the area of the Tambourine House – Slavonian musical fairy tale. “With the opening of the Tamburitza Museum six years ago, Slavonski Brod got a special place on the world map of cultural and tourist offer. It is the first and only Tamburitza Museum in the world and that is why we have created a project through which we will provide a new, modern space for its unique exhibition. In the new museum space, visitors will be able to experience the tambourine as a traditional musical instrument through a number of interesting interactive content. Therefore, we believe that the Tamburitza House project will significantly help preserve the cultural tradition of Slavonia and bring it closer to younger generations. With today’s signing of the contract, the realization of one of the projects will begin, which will significantly contribute to the tourist offer, urbanization and cultural development of the Brod Fortress, and which will certainly strengthen the economic development of Slavonski Brod. ” said Mirko Duspara, mayor of Slavonski Brod. By completing the project of building the Tamburitza House, as a modern interpretation center dedicated to the tamburitza, visitors will get a modern space in which this traditional musical instrument will be able to experience through sound and space. Part of the future museum space will be a souvenir shop, a master workshop where visitors will be able to make a souvenir and a multipurpose hall for tamburitza and folklore competitions, seminars, festivals and other events. In the long run, the City of Slavonski Brod plans to develop the Fortress as a cultural center of the region, and position it as a cultural and tourist attraction for day and weekend trips in continental cultural city tourism. The project envisages the reconstruction of the northern part of the western cavalier of the Brod Fortress for the purpose of its conversion into the House of the Tambourine – Slavonian Music Fairy Tale as a new cultural and tourist attraction in Slavonski Brod. Through the Tamburitza House project, Slavonski Brod will get a modern and functional space for concerts, rehearsals, an exhibition of valuable tamburitza exhibits and educating visitors about the historical significance and tradition of the tamburitza in Slavonia.
