The Register of Cultural Goods of the Republic of Croatia (Croatian: Registar kulturnih dobara Republike Hrvatske) has been established in 1999. The Croatian Ministry of Culture is responsible for the administration of this public register, which has been created according to the Act on the protection and preservation of cultural goods of 1999 (Croatian Zakon o zaštiti i očuvanju kulturnih dobara) (art. 14, OG 69/99[1]). The register is a comprehensive list of all cultural monuments (Croatian: spomenik kulture) under national protection.

Lists[edit]

The register contains the following specialized lists:

  • List of protected cultural goods (Lista zaštićenih kulturnih dobara)
  • List of cultural goods of national significance (Lista kulturnih dobara nacionalnog značenja)
  • List of preventively protected goods (Lista preventivno zaštićenih dobara)

Constitution[edit]

The Croatian constitution stipulates that the protection of cultural goods, as well as their use needs to be regulated according to the constitution and laws of the Republic of Croatia (art. 2).[2]

The constitution further stipulates:

Article 52

The sea, the coast and islands, waters, airspace, mining resources and other natural treasures, but also land property, woods, plants and animals, other parts of nature, immovable property and items of particular cultural, historic, economic and ecologic significance, which are of interest for the Republic of Croatia according to law, have its particular protection.

More, morska obala i otoci, vode, zračni prostor, rudno blago i druga prirodna bogatstva, ali i zemljište, šume, biljni i životinjski svijet, drugi dijelovi prirode, nekretnine i stvari od osobitog kulturnoga, povijesnog, gospodarskog i ekološkog značenja, za koje je zakonom određeno da su od interesa za Republiku Hrvatsku, imaju njezinu osobitu zaštitu.
