50th anniversary: World Heritage Sites in Montenegro

In order to celebrate 50th Anniversary of the World Heritage Convention, the Ministry of Culture and Media of Montenegro will prepare a publication related to World Heritage sites in Montenegro.

The publication will present both national and transnational inscriptions, with special emphasis on implementation of conservation measures on the Natural and Cultural Historic Region of Kotor, after the earthquake in 1979.

Prepared materials, which will be produced in collaboration with national and international experts that are studying World Heritage Sites in Montenegro, will put emphasis on the forms of international cooperation, which led to the transnational inscription of Stećci Medieval Tombstone Graveyards and Venetian Works of Defense between the 16th and 17th Centuries: Stato da Terra – Western Stato da Mar. In addition, part of the publication will be dedicated to sustainable tourism valorization of National Park Durmitor, which is inscribed as a natural site.
