“I wish to congratulate everyone who participated in the long process of compiling the application proposal. I’m proud I get to share your joy today, and that I had the chance to see how dedicated you are to preserving your heritage. Šibenik is one of the rare cities to have two monuments protected by UNESCO, along with London, Berlin, Beijing and New Delhi. Welcome to the club”, Bandarin said.
Bandarin added the fortress is impressive for having a unique design and for being so well-preserved, calling it one of the most outstanding fortresses he has ever seen. He congratulated the City of Šibenik for having done an amazing job and appealed to them to launch a reconstruction project as soon as possible in order to make the fortress accessible to visitors.
