“The Catalogue of Public Spaces in Boka Kotorska” contains information on 83 sites identified during the process of mapping of public spaces in Boka Kotorska. The mapping was conduced by EXPEDITIO as part of the project SOSTENUTO - Culture as a Factor of Economic and Social Innovation. Part of the activities was realized within another project of EXPEDITIO entitled “Revival of City Squares in Balkan Cities”. The mapping of public spaces in the territories of Kotor, Tivat and Herceg Novi was realized in the period May-August 2011, while in the autumn 2011 the collected material was processed and prepared for the website and the catalogue available in pdf at Expeditio website. This catalogue presents 83 out of 175 public spaces identified during the mapping process. At the web address, it is possible to find a map and catalogue of all the identified public spaces. The mapping was done by associates engaged by Expeditio. However, the citizens of Boka Kotorska were included in the process by being invited to propose the sites they consider interesting as public spaces.
