Laser scanning, photogrammetry, topography and GIS are important tools to facilitate this complex management process. Within the context of this summer school, the Heritage Management Organization (HERITΛGE) – in close collaboration with its partners – Ghent University College (HOGENT, Belgium) and Leica Geosystems (Italy), organizes three integrated and consecutive specialist courses on various topics in geomatics.

The Belgrade Fortress, also called Kalemegdan, is the most important cultural and historical monument of Serbia’s capital town. Kalemegdan is protected as immovable cultural property of exceptional importance for the Republic of Serbia. It represents the key point for understanding Belgrade’s development as well as to comprehend its history of diverse civilizations that were involved in Belgrade’s life. The fortress needs to be preserved entirely in its originality without implementation of awkwardly abundant structures such as lift gondola.
The Belgrade Fortress is situated at the conjunction of two rivers, Danube and Sava. Kalemegdan’s walls are offering fantastic views to this attractive scene. Moreover, this sight is easily accessible and anyone can reach it without difficulties. However, the gondola lift is planned to be erected in the length of 1km among the fortress and opposite side of the conjunction. Any intervention of this type would mean irreversible and irrecoverable loss for present and future citizens of Belgrade, Serbia, Europe and World.
