FUNDS FOR CAREVI KULI
Reconstruction of fortress Carevi Kuli over Strumica will begin in March at the latest with funds from the European Agency for Reconstruction (EAR), which allocated about Euro 288,000.
The municipality also finances the project, and the entire investment is worth about Euro 460,000. The fortress’ reconstruction should be completed by the yearend.
The conservation and restoration of the Strumica fortress follows last year’s intensive archaeological research carried out by the Strumica Bureau for Protection of Cultural Monuments and Museum, which resulted in excavation of a 13-century medieval church among others.
Carevi Kuli is Macedonia’s medieval cultural heritage, raised on a hill southwest of Strumica.
