Monuments were cleaned at Ilija’s Park in Igalo, a memorial to Alexandar Dukovic, the busts in Boka Park, the Park of St. Leopold, a commemorative complex on Savina, and currently they are cleaning in the Old Town, which will be followed by cleaning the fountain and bust in the Youth Park.
"The concern of the monuments is the responsibility of the local administration, which has not been planned to date. This year, for the first time, there is a planned budget line intended to maintain the memorial sites on the territory of the town. We are thus responding to the legal obligation, intended to be accountable to the many features that have been placed in memory of important personalities and events of importance for the town of Herceg Novi," said the Secretary of Culture and Education Ana Zambelić Pištalo.
