European experts strongly oppose the controversial cable-car project on the Belgrade Fortress, Serbia
Europa Nostra recently issued a highly critical report about the controversial cable-car project on the Belgrade Fortress. As noted in the report, this legally questionable and ill-conceived project would seriously damage the authenticity and integrity of this iconic site. For this reason, Europa Nostra Serbia has nominated the Belgrade Fortress for the next “7 Most Endangered list” which will be released in spring 2020 by Europa Nostra in Partnership with the European Investment Bank Institute.
Aside from a detailed description of the site, the cable-car project and the campaigns against it, the Report outlines ten main observations made by Europa Nostra experts and seven recommendations to safeguard and enhance the Belgrade Fortress.
The Belgrade Fortress
The Belgrade Fortress is located at the confluence of the Sava River with the
Danube River at the north-west end of the historic city of Belgrade. It was
declared a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1979, and is
protected by the Republic of Serbia.
