Cetinje today

Today I drove to Cetinje.  This was the old capital of Montenegro from about 1875 until WWI.  Even though Montenegro fought on the “good” / winning side, it was given to Yugoslavia / Serbia after the war.

Having recently beaten The Ottoman Empire, The built a very European city. Circa 1900s Paris / Vienna.

This was the Main government building.  Assembly and various departments (post office, transportation, etc). It is now the Museum of Montenegro on first floor and Art Museum on second. 

The old French Embassy.

The old palace of the King.

I don’t know what this was but it is very cool!
