June 29, 2018 - The cable car project to the Fort San Giovanni above Kotor should be discarded and in this way, any negative impact on the extraordinary universal values of the protected natural and cultural-historical area of Kotor will be avoided, said the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

This conclusion was made on the basis of a technical review of the Impact Assessment of past and future effects within the Natural and Cultural-Historical Area of Kotor on the overall heritage (Heritage Impact Assessment), i.e. HIA studies for Kotor, done by the International Council for Monuments and Monumental Units (ICOMOS).

And that is just one of the series of requests submitted by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee to our country during the 42nd session, which runs from June 24 to July 4 in Manama, Bahrain.

Positive assessments of the laws, planning and management mentioned in the HIA study are evaluated and based on which an analysis of the overall protection system is carried out, as well as the announced spatial planning for the Municipality of Kotor. However, it is recalled that these measures cannot replace adequate legal and planning mechanisms related to the entire protected area. They are also concerned about the need for a detailed analysis of all plans that are in place both for the protected area and the buffer area in this zone.
