Banovina - Nis

Banovina building is located on the right bank of the Nisava, close to the entrance to the Fortress. It was built in 1889 for Nis County Administration. In addition to the beauty of its architecture, the building has also been important in the history of Nis and Serbia.



In the beginning of World War One, from 26 July 1914 till 16 October 1915, Nis was the “war capital of Serbia” and this building housed the Serbian Government and Foreign Ministry. On Tuesday, 28 July 1914 the official declaration of war to Serbia by Austro-Hungary arrived here, in a manner unprecedented in diplomatic relations – via a telegram. It was received by the Serbian Prime Minister Nikola Pasic.

On 4 September 1914 in this building the “Treaty between Serbia and Albania”, also known as “Nis Treaty” was signed by Essad Pashё Toptani and Nikola Pasic. It entailed joint defense, customs, representation abroad. It was would prove very important in the winter of 1915 when the Serbian army retreated over Albania.

The second stage of construction commenced in 1930 when Nis became the seat of Moravska Banovina (District). The building got its present look in 1935. After World War Two it was the municipal seat, while since 1966 the building has been the seat of the University of Nis.

Čair's fountain - Nis

One of the most beautiful and best preserved drinking fountains in Nis which has been relocated a number of times. For the first time, it was moved from today’s King Milan Square to Cair Park in 1935 so that the monument to the liberators of Nis could be put up. It remained in the park for 70 years, up until 1997, when it was returned to the central city square.

The fountain was put up in 1903 and was an architectonic monument in the central area of the city in the period preceding World War One. It is made of granite and has a square-shaped basis from whose sides water springs out (from lions’ mouths). The inscription on the fountain reads that the designer was Joseph Rinner, while the stonecutter was Vincenzo Caliterna.

Stambol House - Nis

Stambolijski House is another monument from the period of the reign of the Turks in this area. It is located at 36 Nikole Pasica Street, and, based on the records that remain, the construction was initiated by the Turk Ahmet Memetovic in 1875. He sold the unfinished house to Nis-based tradesman Todor Stankovic Stambolija for 25 golden liras. He got the nickname Stambolija due to his trade connections with Istanbul (traditional Serbian: Stambol), and thus, the building was named Stambolijski House.

Stambolijski House belongs to profane Balkan architecture and was made as a downtown house for the rich. It has more than 10 separate, spacious rooms. Today it houses “Sindjelic” restaurant.

Ram Fortress



The Ram Fortress is situated on a steep slope on the right bank of the River Danube, in the municipality of Veliko Gradište, Serbia. The place first finds its reference in Trajanic times as a settlement where the cavalry units were stationed. In the year 1128 CE, it is mentioned as being in the area where the Byzantines defeated the Hungarians. Sultan Bayazid II (1480–1512) built the present fortifications of Ram Fortress, in the form of a regular pentagon designed to withstand cannon warfare. The side towards the land has a low wall with a wide moat in front of it. Apart from the place, where the fortress is entered, there are four corner towers. Masonry fireplace – rare in the medieval buildings of this region – are preserved in them. The interior of the fortress was demolished during the Koca rebellion in 1788, and a caravanserai, which is built in the same way as the fortress, is found in its vicinity.

Nebojsa Tower - Belgrade



This best preserved and biggest medieval tower of the Belgrade Fortress is located at the end of the north-eastern rampart of the Lower Town. The tower was built around 1460 at the very river bank and it protected the entrance to the medieval wharf. The tower has an octangular base, five levels and it is approximately 22 m high. On every storey there are six openings for cannons. This tower was mentioned in the sixteenth and seventieth century by Turkish and European travel writers as a White or Timişoara Tower. It got its current name after the biggest and most successfully defended tower of the Upper Town – Nebojsa Tower, which was destroyed after an explosion of a powder magazine in 1690. During the thirties of the eighteen century, at the time of Austrian reconstruction of the Fortress, it was completely reconstructed. The Turks used the Nebojsa Tower as a dungeon. Rigas Feraios, a Greek poet, patriot and champion of freedom of the Balkan people from Turks, died here in 1798. After the failure of the First Serbian Uprising, many Serbs were imprisoned at the Nebojsa Tower. During the turbulent times between 1914 and 1915, the tower was severely damaged. It was renovated in 1938. The last conservatory and restoration works were carried out in 1963.

Lepenski Vir is an important Mesolithic archaeological site located in Serbia in the central Balkan peninsula. It consists of one large settlement with around ten satellite villages. The evidence suggests the first human presence in the locality around 7000 BC with the culture reaching its peak between 5300 BC and 4800 BC. Numerous piscine sculptures and peculiar architecture are testimony to a rich social and religious life led by the inhabitants and the high cultural level of these early Europeans.

Old Palace - Belgrade



The Old Palace of the Serbian Obrenović dynasty was built between 1882 and 1884, designed by Aleksandar Bugarski in line with the architecture of academism of the 19th century.

It was built for the needs of the newly formed Kingdom of Serbia headed by King Milan Obrenović with the intention of overshadowing all contemporary Serbian ruler residences. The appearance of the palace was significantly altered compared to the initial design after the reconstructions following heavy damage sustained during both world wars.

The Old Palace was the residence of the Karageorgevich dynasty between 1903 and 1914. Sessions of the temporary National Assembly were held there between 1919 and 1920, as well as court parties and receptions for foreign dignitaries until 1941. Reconstruction following the end of World War II lasted until 1947, and the palace thereafter housed the Presidium of the National Assembly, then the Government of the FNRJ, the Federal Executive Committee and finally, after 1961, the Assembly of the City of Belgrade.

Its outer architectural makeup places the building among the most beautiful works of Serbian academic architecture of the 19th century. The most elaborate façade is facing the gardens. A typical motif on the façade are the caryatids at the first floor level. Caryatids are repeated on the façade facing the Kralja Milana Street, along with a line of Doric columns in front.

The central hall leads to the Red Salon where the “Portrait of the Girl”, painted by Đura Jakšić in 1862 is sure to draw the most attention. The left side of the entrance to the Yellow Salon displays the facsimile of the letter of Pope John VII dated April 16, 878 – the oldest document every to mention the Slavic name of Belgrade. The Yellow Salon houses several exceptional paintings by Sava Šumanović, Jovan Bijelić, Petar Lubarda, Miodrag-Bata Mihajlović, Ljuba Lah, Jovan Zonjić, Peđa Milosavljević, Petar Omčikus and Vasa Pomorišac, as well as woodcuts by Rista Stijović. The Yellow Salon leads to the Ceremonial Hall, a ballroom leading to the terrace. The interior of the 19th century Salon was arranged by the Museum of the City of Belgrade in line with the spirit of the time when the Old Palace was built.

The Old Palace currently houses the Assembly of the City of Belgrade and the cabinet of the mayor.

New Palace - Belgrade

The New Palace was built for the residential needs of the Karageorgevich dynasty during the period between 1911 and 1922.

The building was designed by the renowned Belgrade architect Stojan Titelbah, upon the site of the demolished Palace of the Crown Prince Mihailo Obrenović.

The building of the New Palace, with four stories and the typical corner dome, represents a valuable architectural work of Belgrade construction after World War I. The first floor housed the private and working rooms of the King and Queen: bedrooms with access rooms, cabinets, salons, library and dining hall. The second floor contained the English and Japanese salons, bedrooms and the library. The furniture and interior design bear details in the styles of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI.

The New Palace was the official residence of King Alexander Karageorgevich between 1922 and 1933, thereafter the palace was, in accordance with the king’s wishes, turned over to the Museum of Prince Paul that was moved there in 1934. The museum collections were located at the New Palace until 1948, when the building was handed over to the Assembly of Serbia. The New Court is currently the office of the President of the Republic of Serbia.

Synagogue - Novi Sad

The synagogue complex in Novi Sad, with the accompanying buildings of the School and Jewish Community, was built between 1906 and 1909 to the plans of Budapest architect Lipót Baumhorn.

It was designed in traditional fashion, with stylistic features of the Secession, and is considered one of the finest achievements of Viennese and Budapest architecture.

The domes and numerous rose and other windows are decorated in finely crafted stained glass. The School building, completed in 1907, and that of the Jewish Community, completed in 1908, are located to the side of the synagogue itself, built of the same materials, with façades which match it in style and ornamentation, though are more modestly decorated.
