As part of the main Dubrovnik swimming pool, located in Gruz, the former hotel Stadion has stood empty and in desperate need of investment for the past few decades. Finally, in a new investment project from the City of Dubrovnik, the hotel will be rebuilt and the new project also includes a museum.
The contract for the reconstruction of the ex-hotel Stadion between the City of Dubrovnik as the client and the company Texo Molior d.o.o. as a contractor, was signed last week, ensuring the implementation of this 18.3 million Kuna investment in sports infrastructure, with a deadline of 15 months from the date of commissioning.
“This building has been completely out of function for the last 30 years and is located in the heart of the city,” commented the Mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Frankovic.
The new future hotel/hostel will also include a museum to the leading sport in the city, water polo. “I believe that after the works we will get a building that will represent water polo and swimming in Dubrovnik. After the renovation of the building, Dubrovnik will receive its first Water Polo Museum,” said Mayor Frankovic.
He added that the City of Dubrovnik is continuing to invest into sports infrastructure, citing resolved relations with Excelsa Real Estate, a cable car owner, as a key. - "What we will collect from the cable car will be invested in sports infrastructure," he said.
