The reconstruction of the ex-hotel Stadion began in September last year, and the construction site in the main city public swimming pool was visited by the Mayor Mato Franković today.
As part of this HRK 18.3 million investment, all eastern rooms on the ground floor of the building were renovated and equipped for the needs of the offices of sports associations and clubs and the Public Institution. In the part of the building that was previously used by associations and clubs, a space for the Water Polo Museum is being arranged, under which a new gym will be located.
The entire communal infrastructure has been installed on the remaining part of the building, and the construction of the facade and openings.
Mayor Franković said during the visit that in the existing conditions it was agreed with the contractor to carry out the work with a somewhat reduced intensity, and that the burden on the budget of the City of Dubrovnik would be less. Nevertheless, the mayor expressed satisfaction with the progress of the works, noting that despite the corona crisis, the City is successfully continuing the cycle of investing in decades-old neglected sports infrastructure. According to the new schedule, the investment should be completed in April next year.
This reconstruction is special in that Dubrovnik will have the first water polo museum, which will unite all the sporting successes of the most successful club in the city.
