Stobi on World Monuments Fund 2012 watch list

Archaeological site Stobi is the only Macedonian representative in the group of cultural monuments of universal significance that require global attention on the World Monuments Fund 2012 watch list.
World Monuments Funds released the 2012 list in New York on October 5, including 67 sites and monuments from 41 countries worldwide.
Stobi - remains of a house.
National institution "Stobi" has said this represents a good opportunity to respond to challenges for conservation of Stobi buildings from the aspect of finances and human resources through international projects.
Besides conservation, the second priority is increasing the site's tourism promotion and acquainting the local population with Stobi's significance in a wider sense.
Every two years since 1996, the World Monuments Watch calls international attention to cultural heritage around the globe that is at risk from the forces of nature and the impact of social, political, and economic change.
