This is one of the city’s most beautiful buildings, and is Serbia’s political heart. The structure is neo-Renaissance and neo-Baroque. Thanks to the two Balkan wars, the Great Depression, and WWI it took a long time to complete it’s building – 30 years. From the outside, it’s a pleasure just to see the incredible façade; also check out the Black Horses sculpture in the front. When you step inside, you’ll be dazzled by frescoes, sculptures and furniture.
Unfortunately, tourists are generally not allowed inside, but exceptions are made on some days. Contact the Tourist Office for more details. In the meanwhile you can enjoy spending a little time in the park outside the building.
Trivia: It is thought that the building is cursed, for it’s built on the site of an ancient Roman graveyard.

The National Assembly Reviews & Ratings
The building and green dome we from Yugoslavia time know very well. It still keeps its glory ones had but at least area around the building is very much neglected. It was build on the place Batal Mosque once was still monumental and still wake memories.
Great architectury! Looks very artistic at night with lights!
This is a very beautiful building with two amazing statues in front of it. It is a great place to spend some time and take a few pictures. However, I guess you cannot get in the building!
Magnificent view, specially during the night
King Peter I built the House of Representatives of the Kingdom of Serbianear the former location of a large Batal mosque. The first plans for the future House of Representatives were drawn up by architect Konstantin Jovanović in 1891. His plans were slightly revised because of a new state constitution mandating a bicameral (instead of unicameral) legislature. The 13,800-square-meter building is designed in neo-baroque style. Its interior, completed in 1938, was designed by Russian architect Nikolai Krasnov. Krasnov designed every detail: chandeliers, lamps, handles, windows, and furniture. His plans were painted in watercolor, rather than a classical technical drawing with pencil and ruler.
