cetinje fra kon resizeWhen in Cetinje, I never miss a chance to pass by the former French Embassy Building.

France was among the first European countries to establish diplomatic relations with Montenegro. Construction of this architecturally valuable and for that time modern object is really exceptional. The building was built in 1910 in Art nouveau style, and it was the first reinforced concrete building not only in Montenegro, but wider. It was designed by Polo Gadea and one of the most prominent architects Auguste Pere, was also involved in this project.

Each time I stand in front of it I think about time when even the eaves of the house were important!

Research of the former French Embassy Building was recently published by EXPEDITIO.
