Industrial built heritage represents a multidisciplinary field of research and practice, which, is increasingly gaining importance widely. South Eastern Europe and especially the territory of Serbia keep the remains of old mines, factories, mills, canals, locks, rail facilities, warehouses and workers’ colonies, which are constant reminder of life and work through the history. The importance of industrial heritage in Serbia is particularly reflected in the fact that it is a part of a wider European heritage and reminiscence because this buildings and infrastructure are in most cases built by engineers from different European countries in the late 19th and early 20th century.
Despite the growing interest, the largest number of these facilities is neglected, abandoned, left to oblivion and gradual devastation. A large number of these buildings are not yet well understood and appropriately valorized, neither have they enjoyed legal protection.
