Summary: The project named "The Historic Settlements and Environments in Croatia" is concieved as the series of minor research tasks, some of which are in their initial stages, while others have been conducted for a longer period of time. Its final aim is to contribute to the preservation of the most valuable historic towns and built environments in Croatia, which presupposes a wide knowledge of history of their development. The results of the work on each of the project tasks are being published (in the form of the scientific studies or monographs), or prepared as integral parts of the syntheses to appear.

Keywords: historic core, urban development, town-building history, town-planning, cultural landscape, historic landscape

Research goals: The research has the following principal aims: 1. to gather historic, descriptive, photographic, architectural and topographic data which, collected in this way, have its historical dimensions, but they are, at the same time, also a specific inventory of the present condition of the settlements. 2. to investigate and analyse the development of the settlements in various historical periods, relations between the towns and villages, and the new communications (highways, etc.) and their relations and impact on existing cultural and historic landscapes. The expected result of the research is an evaluation of the monuments which are a huge part of our national heritage. The scientific results serve, as well, as the basis for numerous regional- and town- development plans, but also in the making of plans of protection and reconstruction for towns, monuments and landscapes. The results are also useful in other research areas (i.e. history, sociology, demography).
