The National Assembly, Belgrade

4.5
Sitting on a wide-open square just next to the city center, The National Assembly serves as the seat the country's political activity and is considered one of the icons of the capital. Completed in 1938, this Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Baroque building took 30 years to reach its final form due to the two Balkan Wars, World War I, and the Great Depression of 1929. Observe the monumental facade with mighty pillars and massive horse statues in front, and visit the interior of the building. Take a tour to see frescoes from 1937, renowned sculptures, and exquisite furniture. Although heavily damaged and looted during the civil riots in 2000, the structure ranks as one of the city's most attractive monuments.

  • The former Yugoslav Federal Parliament. Displayed graphic photos of the Serbia people were killed due to Kosovo independence army in front of the Parliament building, "who is a war criminal?? NATO is why complicit inhuman deeds? "And carried banners written message said. Please visit who are interested in the Yugoslavia conflict. They lit up at night is beautiful.

  • One of the most prominent buildings in Belgrade erected in 1936, the country's Parliament. It is an impressive piece of architecture that lies in the vicinity of the Republic Square - Belgrade's main square. It is a must see sight in Belgrade. Pay attention to the horse and giants statues in front of it. Statues have a symbolic meaning. Horses represent strength and humans control and tame the horse's strength - much like the Parliament rules the country.
  • The House of the National Assembly, finished between WW1 and WW2, was the seat of the Parliament of Yugoslavia, and later the Parliament of Serbia and Montenegro. It's usually closed for tourists, but you can enter the hallway, to see the dome and statues.. My favorite is the statue of Tzar Dusan... During the riots in 2000, the House was looted, and much of the art and statues are still missing (around 60%).. For nerds: On the front façade, on the four corners you can see some medallions- from left to right: Demosthenes, Cicero, Athena, and Pericles... I found them quite interesting!
  • It is one of the most beautiful structures in Belgrade. At night it is even beautiful.
  • Good architecture to visit, there is a park in front and one bigger which is close to the building. One of the must see in the city.
  • One of most important places in Belgrade. The place where history of this nation was made.
