Exploring symbols at Cemetery PobrežjeThe program of activities prepared by Pogrebno podjetje Maribor for this years Week of Discovering European Cemeteries refers to the project “Symbols, stories of cultural life”.
Within this project, a research was conducted about the presence, stories and interpretations of symbols at the Cemetery Pobrežje. From a pool of more than 80 memorials with interesting symbols, 3 routes were prepared in the mobile guide ARtour - first including professional symbols, second including religious symbols and third including destiny symbols at the Cemetery Pobrežje.
These routes reveal memories about the individual stories of people buried at the cemetery and at the same time reflect the history, traditions and cultural heritage of the area. All the routes are prepared in Slovenian and English language, and are thus available to domestic and foreign visitors.
