About Europa 2017 - Castle of King Nikola on Cetinje

Since there are no buildings in the Montenegrin architecture such as the castle, the closest building is the castle. In the first year of the reign of Prince Nikola, he marked the beginning of the construction of Knjazev dvor (1863), which was initially intended for the widow of Prince Danila-knjegin Darinka.However, in 1867, Prince Nikola from Billard moved his residence to a new facility. In the beginning, Dvor had a floor and attic. Lateral wings were added later, and today's appearance is worn from 1910. The yard is located in the former Dvorska Street (now in Dvorski Square), in the immediate vicinity of the Cetinje Monastery, Cipura and Njegoš's Billiards, and opposite the facilities in which the Serbian and Bulgarian missions were later located. Post of Montenegro within the issue of "EUROPE Fences" publishes an appropriate postage stamp, block and First Day Envelope. The author of the conceptual solution is Jovan Mugoša, a painter from Podgorica.
