The main goal of the INSPIRATION project is to encourage the revitalization of cities rich in industrial heritage in Slovenia and Croatia - Trbovlje, Slovenska Bistrica, Labin and Rijeka - by creating new tourist content to revive formerly active industrial facilities. Four project cities with a rich industrial history are the main locations of the new cross-border tourist route, which takes visitors from the sawmills and mills of Pohorje, through Trbovlje and Labin mines all the way to the port of Rijeka.

The coal mine played a key role in the town of Trbovlje and the entire Zasavje region, as the entire industrial and economic development of the Zasavje region was based on coal mines. In addition to influencing the development of coal mining, the mine also influenced the development of other industries in the region. The owners of the mines built or participated in the construction of most important public facilities in the region, such as residential, cultural, hospital and school facilities, while the mines extracted coal for heating and electricity production for the whole of Slovenia.

Coal Mine

Prior to the discovery of coal, Zasavje was predominantly agricultural, as a layer of coal in many areas was covered with a thin layer of earth that hid coal from view. In the Trbovlje Valley, "black coal" was officially mined and sold under the leadership of Franz Maurer in 1804. The Trbovlje Coal Mining Company (Trbovlje Coal Mining Company - TPD), based in Vienna, was founded in 1872 and operated. in Zasavje until the end of the Second World War. After the liberation, the Zasavje coal mines became state property. In the following period, the coal mine was part of various organizational forms, until 1996, when it began operating as RTH, Premogovnik Trbovlje - Hrastnik, doo, whose sole founder and owner is the Republic of Slovenia. & Lt; br / & gt; From 11 February 2019 the company is in liquidation. At the end of December 2018, the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Act on the Gradual Closure of the RTH, ie extending the closure of the mine until the end of 2020. The mine has been used as a venue for many tourist and sports events such as the Perkmandeljc hikes, the Cave Atlons and the Cave Marathon, some of which run in caves and some in the open.

In addition to the coal mine, TPPT represented a unique basis for the development of other factories and plants, industrial and craft facilities, transport and social activities in Zasavje and Slovenia. Today, the thermal power plant and the chimney are no longer in operation. Climbing the chimney is also prohibited. Termoelektrarna Trbovlje has been operating as HSE - energy company Trbovlje doo since 2018 and is looking for new possibilities for facilities, also in connection with tourist projects.
