 Summary:
 The aim of the study presented in this article is to detect problems in the process of restoration of cultural monuments in present day Serbia, with special emphasis on the situation in Subotica. Although architectural heritage represents an important element of identity and local culture, it does not have priority in evaluation of people’s needs in Serbia. The situation is especially dire for the cultural monuments erected at the turn of the 19th to 20th century. Their significance often remains unrecognized, as they are not deemed to be “old” enough, or treated as valuable architectural heritage. The works performed on them fail to comply with the techniques and crafting skills originally used in constructing these buildings, including instead the use of contemporary materials and techniques. There are number of reasons for this failure and it will be discussed in the paper.
