A total of 13 ATM machines have now been removed from the historic Old City core of Dubrovnik since the implementation of the City of Dubrovnik’s decision to restrict the installation of ATMs in the city centre.
After the administrative procedures were completed and the legal deadlines for adjustment expired, 11 enforcement decisions were issued by way of a fine, and the owners themselves removed a total of 13 ATMs in the last seven days, including three from the main street through the Old City the Stradun.
"High fines are foreseen for offenders, and the City of Dubrovnik Communal Police will continue to check the locations in the historic core daily and print fines on a daily basis. However, according to the announcements, all remaining ATMs that are set up without the consent of the conservators are expected to be removed," read a statement from the City of Dubrovnik.
The city administration points out that they were the first Croatian city to regulate the issue of ATMs by their acts, which have seriously affected the appearance of UNESCO's monumental heritage.
