Special recognition to the Electric Power Industry of Serbia02.Jul.2016 by Klaster puteva kulture
There are very few countries in Europe that boast such a great number of entirely preserved 100 year old hydroelectric power plants. Therefore, prior to the beginning of Tesla days manifestation 2016, Cluster of Cultural Routes awards a special recognition to the Electric Power Industry of Serbia for the great contribution to the preservation of the old hydroelectric power plants which represent significant cultural heritage of Serbia.
Industrial heritage in Serbia is quite neglected, and many do not recognize its cultural value. Therefore, we believe that the Electric Power Industry of Serbia is a true hero in terms of the preservation of industrial heritage in the form of the old hydroelectric power plants that have survived to date almost in their original form, intact and unharmed. Were it not for the well-preserved hydroelectric power plants, there would neither be Tesla ways through Serbia route, nor, mostly likely, Tesla days manifestation that has been attracting thousands of visitors annually for years. A significant number of the visitors yearn to see EPIS’s centennials’, says Manuela Graf, president of Managing Board at the Cluster of Cultural Routes.
