Vesic: Gondola will be built despite the hysteria of an aggressive minority Izvor: N1

The gondola at Kalemegdan in Belgrade will be built "despite the hysteria of an aggressive minority," Belgrade Deputy Mayor Goran Vesic said Sunday.

"Belgrade will receive a gondola linking the Kalemegdan Park and Usce, just as Jerusalem, New York, Salzburg, Koblenz and many other cities have their gondolas," Vesic said in an interview with Blic.

Europe's largest organization dedicated to the preservation of cultural heritage "Europa Nostra" issued a report on July 30, saying that the implementation of the "controversial" cable car construction project in Belgrade's Kalemegdan Fortress would "irreversibly compromise the historic and aesthetic value of a protected cultural property from exceptional of importance to Serbia."

Stating that the report was prepared on the basis of the high-level delegation of “Europa Nostra” experts' visit to Belgrade in early May, the organization estimated that the Kalemegdan project was "legally controversial and without a clear purpose and foundation" and that the construction of a cable car in that area would have "devastating consequences on the authenticity and integrity of the cultural heritage that is a symbol of Belgrade."
