EU Continues Investments in Improving Golubac’s Tourism Offer - Outdoor Sports Fields and Summer Stage under Rehabilitation

In Golubac, with the support of the European Union, the EU PRO programme is working towards the further improvement of the conditions for organising cultural and sports events. As part of the works worth a total of 120,000 Euros, the multi-purpose sports fields rehabilitation and the summer stage roof construction will be carried out and the necessary stage equipment purchased.

With the Golubac Fortress, which has been restored with the EU funds, the Municipality of Golubac is the leading tourist destination on the Danube, while the additional EU support will make it possible to complement its tourist offer.

"Now all the inhabitants of the municipality will have better conditions for engaging in sports and they will have the opportunity of enjoying an even richer cultural and artistic programme," said Golubac Mayor Nebojša Mijović. As he added, with the works on the road infrastructure, the construction of a bicycle-pedestrian track connecting the weekend resort village of Vinci-Usije to the Golubac fortress and the construction of a beach in Golubac due to start this year, the investment in tourism continues as one of the strategic goals of the development of the municipality.

"Most importantly, by investing in tourism and a varied tourist offer, we contribute to the development of the local community as well as to the advancement of the economy, which means job creation and an opportunity for young people to stay and work in Golubac," said Mayor Nebojša Mijović.

During the project implementation, special attention will be paid to activities related to the implementation of good governance principles, which includes the adoption of the rulebook on the management and use of the sports fields and the stage. Among other things, with this approach, the fields will be available to the pupils from the nearby school for physical education classes as well as to persons with disabilities for recreational purposes. These activities are carried out in partnership with the Swiss PRO programme supported by the Government of Switzerland.

The works are being carried out by a group of bidders: "Ana d.o.o. " from Veliko Gradište, as the principal partner in the contractor group also comprising companies "Aingor d.o.o." from Kragujevac, "ARBAG d.o.o." from Aranđelovac, "Elmont-gradnja d.o.o." from Požarevac and BTR "Stefi M15" Branko Mitić PR from Radinac, selected in the procurement procedure conducted by the Golubac Municipality.

The project Rehabilitation of the multipurpose outdoor sports fields and roof construction in the summer stage in Golubac is funded by the European Union in partnership with the Government of the Republic of Serbia through the EU PRO programme. The project’s complementary activities related to the implementation of good governance principles are carried out in cooperation with the Swiss PRO programme supported by the Government of Switzerland.
