Seminar “The old and new life of the Fortress”

The seminar ‘The old and new life of the Fortress’ is behind us.
We would like to thank the participants who came to us from all over Poland. We appreciate the participation of the lecturers and speakers, media representatives and all those who attended.
The seminar was opened by President Emilia Pawnuk, who welcomed the guests and outlined the progress of the work and future plans. The floor was then taken by Paweł Gancarz, head of the Stoszowice commune. The next item on the agenda was a speech by Dr hab. inż. arch. D., Professor Piotr Molski of the Warsaw University of Technology, who spoke about the 20 years of the Fortress Cultural Park in Srebrna Góra. Grzegorz Basiński, manager of the renovation and conservation of the Srebrna Góra Stronghold sp. z o.o., talked about the implementation of conservation and adaptation works and the living museum of the Srebrna Góra Stronghold. Robert Jurga, historical illustrator, reconstructor and expert on fortifications, presented the principles and methods of erecting defensive structures through illustrations. The construction process of the Srebrnogórska Fortress on the basis of archival materials was presented by Grzegorz Podruczny, PhD, Professor at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. The last speaker, Tomasz Przerwa, Ph.D., Professor of Wrocław University, presented the Fortress from the inside – how the “Silesian Gibraltar” lived and functioned.
