Since 2013, the cluster has developed two industrial cultural routes:
Nikola Tesla Ways
In 2003, in recognition of the universal significans of Nikola Tesla and his inventions, UNESCO added Tesla's archive, as part of the moveable human documentary heritage to the Memory of the World Register, the highest form of cultural assests. Following Nikola Tesla's autobiography and his diaries, the route Nikola Tesla Ways links all countries where Tesla lived and worked. The Institut of Cultural Routes has included the Tesla Ways among the several cultural routes which might be important for the Danube region.
Mining Route. The Balkans: Cradle of Metallurgy
Results from laboratory tests at Britain's Institute for Archaeo-Metallurgy Studies indicated that the territory of modern-day Serbia constitutes the cradle of world metallurgy. The first metals were smelted here seven thousand years ago. Once there also was a kind of enormous, pre-historic industrial center. By including other mining locations and sites, the 'Mining Route. The Balkans. Cradle of Metallurgy' can become an incredible journey through the development of mining from prehistoric to modern times.
