The article deals with cultural heritage from the regional integration aspect. Apart from this, the paper points to the role of cultural heritage in integration affirmation. Both cultural heritage and regional integration will have significance if they realise themselves through their elements – parts that are integrated through the system. Therefore, economic, political, cultural and all other kinds of integrations in the region will have their justification and integrity in the full sense of the meaning when each of them and all they together are realised in the integrated system that is well-known as “regional co-operation”. Even in a theoretical and conceptual way, no integration in the region where Serbia is excluded can be treated as a regional integration. Integration is possible to achieve only when apart from the theoretical it also involves practical realisation of all its integral parts making a whole system – “regional integration”. A lack of cultural regional co-operation has been compensated by signing of numerous bilateral agreements. The failure to create regional integrations is caused by unsolved problems in the field of minority rights, territorial aspirations, frequent armed conflicts and influence of great powers.
