This beautiful building in "neo-antique" style was erected in 1836, and it was the first monumental high school in Serbia during the reign of Duke Miloš Obrenović. Well preserved and still functional- best way to grasp spirit of Serbian educational system.

Located in Kragujevac, Serbia. Founded in 1833, the school is the oldest Serbian high school south of the Sava - Danube line. It looks beautiful inside as it does outside. I always loved the smell of old books in the library.

The project was done in Vienna, and the construction lasted from 1884 to 1888. The woodwork is still in this period, and it is built...More
