Rationale regarding consistency with programme strategy and the objectives of the priority axis

Settlements along river Tamis in the Banat have parks which are European urban cultural heritage from XVIII century. According to historical data Austrian empire developed urbanisation and typical public facilities. Among other such facilities (buildings, churches, storages) there were parks as mandatory public content of settlements. In that period Pančevo and Caransebeş established their first parks. On that way they represent artefacts of cultural heritage of people of the Banat region, now in two countries Serbia and Romania.

In contemporary life these old parks have crucial ecological function in general system of urban greenery and could be significant element of touristic offer. Pančevo and Caransebeş parks are valuable spaces which give especial charm and ambient to the settlements.

Plants, as basic element of landscape architecture, are subject of changes and they have limited life cycle. Also, they need continuous care and maintenance to survive and maintain the look we want. If this care fail, parks quickly decay, vegetation become poorer, architectonical value decreasing and conception impair. Old parks need continuous care and protection and in degraded parts reconstruction.

Conservation and arrangement of this aspect of cultural heritage in cross border area provide stability of social values as well as potential for further development of Serbo-Romanian (Banat) parks from 18 century. Experiences will be exchange through informal education and cultural and artistic events with partners.

Also, project insists on international promotion of this type of cultural heritage restoration. Settlements will get more authentic look with incorporation of landscape architecture heritage and will be unique and attractive for tourists.

Green areas have great influence primarily for environment preservation and human life, improve air and soil quality.
