Raša, the youngest town in Istria is a unique story about mining. Rabac, Labin and Raša are an excellent rounded tourist story that offers a diverse and authentic tourist product, from a strong cultural and historical heritage, architecture, gastronomy and ultimately sea or beach tourism. According to some, the Labin National Museum is among the 10 most original museums in Croatia. After experiencing the life of Labin miners, interactive maps and musical recordings of traditional Istrian instruments will take you through the rich history from Labin’s Uskok Battle to the terrible Boiler Law, and you will discover the story of the inventor of speedometer physicist and mathematician Josip Belušić, born in Županići near Labin. . In 1888, he constructed the first electric speedometer without which the functioning of cars, planes and ships is unthinkable today. Within the museum, the display of a typical, poor mining apartment is of additional interest. Numerous details in the apartment tell their story and are a mirror of a time. In this apartment, as if time stood still, the weight of the miner’s life is evoked in a special way, and you have the feeling that the miner has just left the apartment. I confirm first hand what it is like to be a part of that time moment of a mining story, to feel that reality, for visitors a truly unique experience. This content should be experienced by all tourists who come to Rabac, but also by all who are in Istria. I hope that a visit to these museums is part of all Rabac tourist packages. Also, it is interesting how all three destinations are connected by kilometer mines, a story that would open a total new tourist and economic perspective with the Rabac – Labin cable car, and put the whole destination on the European map of destinations that must be experienced. The Labin Museum is one of the most original in Croatia The very entrance to the museum is impressive. The mining shaft is enchanted, and the symbolism of underground life is emphasized by the contrast of darkness and light. Images of miners’ faces, numerous exhibits from the mine provide the visitor with a true experience of the mine’s atmosphere. The visitor blends in with the interior and relives the mining reality. Walking on the original rails is a unique feeling, and the screens with video projections take the visitor into the past. Archival films evoke a visual moment of a time and we become part of an unusual story. Take a peek with us through video and audio at the Mining Museum. The sound effects create the impression of real explosions in a mine and coal mining. The visitor is given a complete liveliness and impression of the atmosphere of the mine. The next breathtaking museum is located in Labin, and also nurtures mining history. This attractive Croatian museum is housed in the Baroque Battiala-Lazzarini Palace. The rich mining history of Labin comes to life in this museum in the museum basements where there is a tunnel with a 150 meter long mining display. See how fascinating and original the passage through the tunnels looks. Source: Tourist Stories This town is located among the green hills and attracts with its specific architecture. In the heart of the town on the square you will find the church of St. Barbara, protector of miners. And this is where the mining story begins, which separates Raša from other towns in Istria and makes it recognizable. The mining past is woven into the overall picture of Raša. The rich heritage of mining life is authentically displayed in the Arsia Center, a small mining museum. This story is original and completely different, and so tempting that you just have to experience it.

The company’s chief executive officer, Morris Kaliva, agreed to draw workers from the county, particularly from the district.She had earlier said the project came about when President Sirleaf, as chair of ECOWAS, expressed the need for a center to cater to the needs of both Liberians and Sierra Leoneans at that particular border point.Tewor District Commissioner Haja Fahnbulleh, on behalf of the county, commended the government and WAHO for the project and pledged their fullest cooperation to get the job done.In his message the Special Representative of ECOWAS president Babatunde Ajisomo, expressed satisfaction over the groundbreaking and called on Liberians and Sierra Leoneans to take ownership of the project.Dr. Patrick Kamara of the Cape Mount County Health Team commended WAHO for the project. He explained the frustration felt whenever a patient would have to be sent elsewhere because of inadequate materials to address their needs.He spoke about several challenges and hoped that the completion of the center will provide great relief to the community and assured the MoH and WAHO of their cooperation to get the job completed at the stipulated time.said a special will team will return to the site of the construction to follow its progress. “In the five months it will take to see the completion of the project, we will be coming to get updates of the construction,”said Dr. Laurent Assogba, deputy director general of WAHO, .Momolu V. O. Sirleaf, WAHO Liaison Officer, gave an overview of the project and urged the future beneficiaries to make sure that they take ownership of the center.An elder who spoke through an interpreter commended WAHO and the MoH and calledddd for the timely completion of the center “So that I can get benefits from it before I die,” as the gathering broke into laughter.The Mano River Union (MRU) Cultural Troupe climaxed the ceremony by entertaining the crowd.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
