During the first day (16 September 2014), the group of participants went on a bus tour to four projects, which are being implemented in the frame of the programme in the northeaster part of the programme area of Slovenia and Austria. At first, we visited the project SKUPAJ. On the border between Slovenia and Austria, the participants were together with the project partners welcomed by the mayors of Gornja Radgona and Bad Radkersburg, Anton Kampuš and Josef Sommer.

On behalf of the project partnership of the project City Cooperation, Mag. Christian Fraissler-Simm (Regionalentwicklung Steiermark) and Andrej Vršič (director of LTO) introduced the participants in Bad Radkersburg to the content of the project. Escorted by four mascots of Slovenian cities of the project the participants had some refreshments and went afterwards to a tour through the city of Bad Radkersburg, where, by using a mobile application developed in the frame of the project, explored the main attractions of the city. We continued our journey towards Šentilj/Spielfeld. Led by the project manager of the project BorderArch-Steiermark, Dr. Marko Mele, we visited a prehistoric site in Novine nad Šentiljem/Bubenberg bei Spielfeld, where extensive archaeological surveys and excavations in the frame of the project have been taking place since spring 2014. During a hike through the woods, the participants were informed that previous research has shown that in Hoarrachkogel – a hill above Bubenberg bei Spielfeld – in the Bronze and Iron Age fortified settlement were located with suburbs and tumuli necropolis. This settlement was used to monitor the vital link between Podravje and Pomurje. The project manager and the project partners from the Center for Preventive Archaeology of the Slovenian Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage have enabled us to see the mounds along the borderline between Slovenia and Styria, which were, using the latest technologies, discovered, evaluated and researched.
