Croatia’s Minister of Culture Andrea Zlatar Violic, talking at a news conference yesterday in the Dalmatian city of Split, has announced that the forest park on Marjan hill in Split has been declared a protected cultural landscape.
The protection declaration means that for the next three years at least construction would be prohibited in the forest park. Last year Split Mayor Zeljko Kerum announced he would construct a huge cross on top of the hill looking over the coastal city but Zlatar Violic told reporters that the structure could not exceed eight metres.
