As previously published on our website, a controversial cable-car project that has been initiated by Belgrade’s governmental institutions, caused public reactions and strong protest of professionals from various fields. The cable-car should have been constructed at the most important cultural and historical location as well as one of the most important urban points in Belgrade – its fortress. The fortress itself is archeological site, and crucial place for understanding Belgrade, its phases and layers of development.
Thanks to our persistent and worthy colleagues from EUROPA NOSTRA SERBIA, this project has been stopped.
Europa Nostra, the leading heritage organisation in Europe issued a Report strongly opposing a controversial project that plans to build a cable-car at the site of the Belgrade Fortress, one of the most important historical monuments of the Republic of Serbia and a highly significant testimony of European history. The legally questionable and ill-conceived project would have devastating consequences on the authenticity and integrity of this iconic site, it is noted in the Report. For this reason, Europa Nostra Serbia has also nominated the Belgrade Fortress for the next “7 Most Endangered list” which will be announced in spring 2020 by Europa Nostra in Partnership with the European Investment Bank Institute.
