Mobility week has been organized in Niksic since 2011. It is an excellent opportunity to highlight the health, economic and environmental benefits of using sustainable travel modes in our City. Municipality of Niksic has planned promotional activities and awareness-raising campaign through media, our website and social networks aiming to promote the core idea for this year - "Clean, shared and intelligent mobility".
Central activity is planned for September 19. Walking zone will be established for several hours starting at 10 a.m. at Njegoseva street in the center of the City. Pupils from primary schools “Ratko Zaric”, “Olga Golovic” and “Braca Ribar” will participate in drawing workshops on the walking zone in front of the Department store. Kids from kindergarten “Dragan Kovacevic” will exhibit their drawings and participate in music and dance performance. Promotional cycling rice will also be organized.
