Preserving Cultural Heritage and Empowering Local Communities
Friends of Počitelj is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting Počitelj’s unique cultural and historic heritage. By empowering residents and engaging with the local community, we aim to create a sustainable and vibrant future for Počitelj. We believe that Počitelj can serve as a model for neglected towns worldwide and strive to forge strong relationships with other underserved communities.
Vision for a Sustainable Future
Many neglected towns face significant challenges such as political neglect, lack of basic municipal services, and decaying infrastructure. We believe that Počitelj is not only a gem in the Bosnian and Herzegovinian landscape but also a valuable cultural heritage site for the global community.
As such, we are committed to working towards its preservation and development in a way that reflects its significance as a world heritage site. Our efforts are not limited to the local community, but we aim to engage with individuals and organizations from around the world who share our vision of preserving and celebrating Počitelj’s unique cultural heritage.
In 1996, Počitelj was named by World Monuments Watch as one of the world’s 100 most endangered cultural heritage sites, as proposed by the University of York, United Kingdom, and the University of Sarajevo, in the light of its outstanding value.
