Photographer's Note

Present Serbia is the sixth state in a row the National Assembly serves, and construction of the building was finished only during the time of the third. The founding stone was placed in 1907, when Belgrade was the capital of the Serbian Kingdom. The construction recommenced after the establishment of the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, after the First World War (1914 – 1918), and was completed in the Yugoslav Kingdom (1936), which was dissolved by the German occupation in the Second World War (1939 – 1945).

From the outside, the National Assembly building is a harmonious unity of the High Renaissance and Ancient Greek styles, featuring Corinthian and Ionian columns, imposing cupola flanked with turrets, high portico accessible by a monumental staircase and densely distributed windows. Placed at each side atop the monument there is an additional cupola, while two angels guard the entrance above the doorway.

On the right side of the picture we can see tower of St. Mark's Church.
