September the 27th, 2021 - To mark 2021's Lastovo Municipality Day which took place this past Sunday, County Prefect Nikola Dobroslavic arrived with a delegation and spoke about the steps being taken to make Lastovo more connected with the mainland.

As Morski writes, the central part of the celebration of Lastovo Municipality Day was the Formal Session of the Municipal Council held at the House of Culture (Dom Kulture), where the audience was addressed by Prefect Nikola Dobroslavic, who was also an envoy of the President of the Croatian Parliament.

Stressing how important it is that islands like Lastovo, like all other areas across the southernmost Dubrovnik-Neretva County, develops evenly, the prefect said that the first step towards that was the establishment of a daily high-speed line that connects Lastovo with the county centre.

He added that Dubrovnik-Neretva County will continue to support projects that contribute to the development and preservation of the natural beauty of Lastovo and said that at a recent meeting in the municipality, two extremely important contracts for Lastovo were signed - Dubrovnik-Neretva County is set to provide 130,000 kuna for the purchase of equipment for the remediation of pollution in the sea around the island, and with the director of the County Road Administration Ivo Kastelan, a contract for the construction of a local road to Skrivena Luka which will be 2.7 kilometres long and be worth six million kuna was signed.

County Prefect Nikola Dobroslavic also pointed out one of the capital projects as part of Lastovo Municipality Day celebrations, which is the reconstruction of the Port of Ubli worth 60 million kuna, which will begin soon.

With congratulations extended for Lastovo Municipality Day and the feast of St. Kuzma and Damjan, Prefect Nikola Dobroslavic also reminded all those present that the Lastovo Islands Nature Park is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year and congratulated the management of the park, wishing them to continue to wisely continue to lead and preserve the exceptional beauty Lastovo boasts.
