On November 22, as a part of Germany Weeks in Ukraine, the QR-Guide of German period in Dnipro is presented in the Artsvit Gallery. This is an innovative tourist route, which includes 16 buildings designed by German architects. The project was implemented at the initiative of the Consulate General of Germany, in cooperation with the Dnipro Council and the Dnipro Development Agency, with the support of the Dnipro Chief Architect.
A feature of the QR-guide is the fact that anyone can walk on their own in the German track and through the special mobile application learn more about the objects’ history. The application may be useful for foreign guests of the city as it is developed in several European languages.
Historian Valentin Starostin and IT developer Mikhail Dyomshin are going to organize a special tour to familiarize the journalists with the selected objects and the principle of the QR-Guide operation. After the tour, the project participants are going to talk about the features of the QR-guide project, their contribution to its implementation and future plans.
Participants of the event: Wolfgang Mösinger (General Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany in Donetsk with a temporary office in Dnipro), Boris Filatov (Dnipro mayor), Iryna Polikarchuk (the ArtSvit Gallery director), Mikhail Dyomshin (author and developer of the MoreInfo IT application), Valentin Starostin (historian, Dnipro Development Agency).
