The tactile map for the blind and visually impaired is a street furniture, an IPA cooperation project of Subotica and Szeged.The project was launched at the initiative of the Tourist Organization of Subotica.At the corner of the Trg republike and Trg slobode a relief map of Art Nouveau buildings is set in the city centre.Six most important buildings in the Art Nouveau style are included in this map, which are in relation to the other city blocks magnified up to four times, as if viewed under a magnifying glass.They are also brought in more detail.Due to these magnifications, buildings in their vicinity are eliminated.Bronze relief is anchored to the pedestal covered with granite.In front of the relief, explanatory key on the brass plates is placed, engraved in the Braille alphabet and the Latin alphabet, in Serbian, English and Hungarian.On the front of the pedestal, there are two plaques containing information about the project, the investor and the like.
