On this occasion, the Serbian Ministry of Culture stressed that the inclusion of the traditional dance in UNESCO’s list represented “a great success for Serbia’s culture” and would “to a large degree contribute to this segment of our cultural heritage becoming more recognizable and visible around the world.”
