Summary/Abstract: Investigative works were carried out at the site of St George’s church in Gomiljani with a view to obtaining the information and initial parameters needed for later stages of the project for the repair, conservation and reconstruction of the church. The cumulative cost of these works was 30,808.20 KM, financed from the budget of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina as part of the Intervention measures to protect national monuments funded from the state budget.
