In the 2022-2023 Kazlų Rūda Tourism and Business Information Center together with its partners the regional cultural center “Mazury Garbate” from the city of Olecko (Poland) is implementing the project “Period travel via the royal railway line” financed by the Lithuanian Council of Culture and Kazlų Rūda municipality.
During the project participants and organizers were able to look at the history and architecture of their cities from a new perspective. The participants of the project Rimvydas Žigaitis School of Arts in Kazlų Rūda, and the students of the city of Olecko, got to know the stories of the buildings in their cities and the influence of the railway on the development of their cities. The information plates, which were purchased during the project, will appear near the buildings in 2023. Information in the plates will help more easily know the architecture, history, identity and culture of the cities for the guests and residents. After scanning the QR codes it will be possible to see photos of the buildings and children’s drawings with descriptions in three languages: Lithuanian, Polish and English.
Funds allocated to the project:
- Lithuanian Cultural Council – 3200 EUR
- Kazlų Rūda municipality – 397.4 EUR
