The competent bodies of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports have rejected the conceptual project presented by the Municipality of Prizren for the construction of the access infrastructure to the Castle of Prizren. Similar actions have been taken also by the Cultural Heritage Council of the Historic Center of Prizren. Despite this fact, the Municipality of Prizren is finalizing the process of running the tendering procedures for this project.

Based on the information that EC Ma Ndryshe has got from the competent MCYS bodies, the Commission for Reviewing and Assessing Claims and Restoration-Conservation Cultural Heritage Projects/KIPM has recommended the rejection of the conceptual project for the construction of the access infrastructure to the Castle of Prizren. "The concept project is refused - Construction of access infrastructure in Prizren Castle because it is in contradiction to the general conditions given by the IAK and in violation of the Law No.02 / L-88 on Cultural Heritage" It is said in the recommendation of the aforementioned Commission.
