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.
