Main challenges for the city and its hinterland:

  • Betternt promotion of the natural and cultural landmarks in the greater area of the city as well as the need of uniting and connecting them in one central network of functions, of green and of communal spaces.
  • The spatial planning should be based on the frame of the corporative relation between town and countryside.
