Belgrade company says remains of palace found at Kosovo fortress site Izvor: N1

The Belgrade-based KOTO company said on Friday that it’s team of experts found the remains of a palace, church and fortifications at the Novo Brdo site in Kosovo.

The KOTO team said they found remains of frescoes in the ruins of a church along with baths and two water cisterns. “This is priceless cultural treasures which have been hidden under the ground and seven meters of rock for centuries,” a press release said, adding that team had been banned from doing restoration work on fortress earlier in the month by the Kosovo Monuments Institute.  

The KOTO team has done initial work to preserve the fortress which has been a point of dispute between the authorities in Kosovo and Serbia with both claiming that the fortress is part of their heritage. Men in military-style uniforms raised tents and the flag of Kosovo over the fortress on at least two separate occasions over the summer.
