Description
The idea that Banja Luka should be given a multifunctional facility, where the mentioned purposes would be connected, is precisely one step in the strategic vision of the city. In addition to local, its function and capacities should meet wider, regional needs for this type of a facility. The cultural offer is therefore expanding and creating optimal conditions for the development of concert, ballet and opera arts, since the existing capacities in the city have long been exceeded in technological and parametric aspects.
In addition to the cultural offer, the future facility complex will also serve as a congress center that combines the phenomena of the exchange of scientific knowledge, science and education. The aforementioned activities are accompanied by exhibiting activities, catering, business, administration and other necessary purposes. The concept of multifunctional­hybrid facility aims to utilize the space without reducing comfortable use and technology of its purpose.
Finally, the modern mobility of users and the constant acceleration of the rhythm of life, and the development of new needs also indicate that the future construction complex will contribute to the development of tourist
offer of the city.
