The presentation of the project was held in the Dubrovnik City Hall, and the Deputy Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mrs. Jelka Tepšić, spoke to the audience.
Visitors with impaired vision were extremely pleased with the presentation of the city’s cultural heritage and sights and commented that such an adaptation of the content is very necessary because in this way they can learn everything they do not see.
Through the project, 8 relief depictions of Dubrovnik sights (Cathedral, Sponza Palace, Rector’s Palace, etc.) were made, which remain permanently accessible to visitors with impaired vision, tactile
postcards with the coat of arms of the old Dubrovnik Republic were printed, and a tourist guide was educated, Ms. Sanja Čikato which presented to visitors and described everything they could not see.
