Godinje settlement - adaptive reuse and revitalizationJovana Dragović
, 2019, master's thesis
Abstract: The Master’s thesis deals with the valorization and restoration of Godinje, the first village in Montenegro with the status of immovable cultural property. The project encompasses an analysis of the present state of the cultural heritage, research of traditional architectural elements of the crmnica house, as well as the role of man in space. An important factor in the development and preservation of architecture is the awareness of space and the factors that define it. With the aim of encouraging the proper maintenance of cultural heritage, while giving purpose to certain objects, the village planning has been resolved. By emphasizing the spatial principles and traditional techniques of construction, and thus the education thereof, the value is emphasized and further development of Godinje is made possible.

Between cultural and natural heritageRichard Ingwe
, 2014, original scientific article
Abstract: The planning of tourism products in the north-central Cross River State (corresponding to ‘old Ogoja province) is examined in this study. Explained in the article are: justification of the need for undertaking community-based tourism development strategy as a means of reducing inter- regional disparity in development aroused by historical discrimination against the region through eras of Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, colonialism, and successive post-independent governments; creation of special development funds aimed at addressing challenges posed by personalization of government thereby creating governance deficits; and descriptions of the tourism potentials/resources of the north-central Cross River State. Rather than adopting the advice of tourism experts in the 1960s that African countries ought to prefer to design cultural-heritage tourism products aiming towards attracting some 145 million tourists from the United States of America (USA) who might be satiated with natural heritage tourism products offered back home. Here, it is argued here that considering myriad socio-economic-political dynamics thereafter – including anti-African/Nigerian political measures such as barring US citizens from visiting Nigeria or parts of it- there is no need concentrating on such restricted tourism products. This is justified by the fact that with nearly 170 million population –most of whom are expecting to move from poverty towards the middle class among other prosperous economic statuses and who do not need to immediately access foreign natural heritage tourism, there is need for north- central Cross River State –a region possessing diverse tourism resources to plan tourism products that seek to integrate natural heritage with the cultural varieties in order to properly capture both local and foreign tourists. Foreign tourists here covers a larger spectrum beyond US visitors including visitors from large and increasing number of member states of the United Nations.

Historic train stations in Małopolskie Province during the railroad industry regressionTomasz Chaberko
, 2008, original scientific article
Abstract: Train stations tend to be the most representative constructions of the railroad industry. In many cases they are considered as interesting transportation and architectural monuments. In Poland, where the rail network was developed mostly before World War I, they constitute the most numerous group of monuments of Poland’s industrial era. The main goal of this paper is to indicate the historic train station buildings (those dating back to the period 1847-1918) in Małopolskie Province and determine their role in the modern railroad transportation system. As a backdrop for the discussion, a few background elements are included. They are: chosen architectural hallmarks of train stations in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, selected issues concerning the railroad history of Galicia and contemporary aspects of the railroad industry’s current regression. It is in this context that the state and prospective utilization of historic rail stations are portrayed.
