The leading European movement committed to the protection of cultural heritage, this year’s Europa Nostra prize was awarded to Special Rehabilitation Hospital Bukovička Banja for the rehabilitation project of the Pavilion of Prince Miloš, among 12 heritage conservation achievements in Europe.
‘’Only a few years ago, the Pavilion of Prince Miloš was in danger of decay. Today, it stands in all its beauty and we are proud to say that we have preserved the heritage of our ancestors for the future generations. The Kingdom of Norway recognized the importance of the idea for restoration of the Pavilion of Prince Miloš, and on this occasion, we would like to express our gratitude for their help in preserving this unique part of the Serbian cultural heritage - highlighted Dr. Slobodan Prodanović, menager of the Bukovička Spa Hospital.
The conservation of the Pavillion of Prince Miloš was completed in 2016, which returned the historical beauty to this pearl of Bukovička Spa Park. Since then, the visitors of the Pavilion’s centre are able to drink mineral water which is sourced from three surrounding springs.
In the explanation of the prize, the international jury highlighted the Pavilion of Prince Miloš.
