At the time of the dynasty Petrovic Cetinje, still gaining more and more important, and the struggle for formal recognition that there is factual in the field.
That de facto independence understand the great powers (notably Austria-Hungary), which for example negotiated with Montenegro instead of Turkey about border. Petrović Dynnasty create the institutions of the state.

Biljarda (since 1838) was build for the accommodation of the institutions of state power. The draft of the building made the Russian envoy Jakov Ozerecovski. Frst it called the new building, and received its present name from 1839 when it housed a billiard room table. As the residence of the Montenegrin bishop served until 1867, when the palace made, and the seat of government functions until 1910 when the Government House was built. Today in the Billiard is Njegos museum.

Theatre Zetski dom (since 1888). The project of theatre was done by Josip Slide Šilović from Trogir. Even today the building is used for the purposes for which created 121 years ago.

Plavi Dvorac (Blue Palace) (from 1895) is actually a palace built for prince (future king). Today the Plavi Dvorac is Museum and Art Gallery.

Of course, the seat of a state in the 19-th centry it might not be out of embassies, which are popping up in Cetinje, after the formal recognition of Montenegro at the Berlin Congress in 1878.

Mission of the Ottoman Empire (from 1890) had previously been home of Duke Maša Vrbica. Soon the building its name,''Pasha's house. After adaptation 1995 located the Faculty of Drama.

The Bulgarian mission (since 1897) was in Iva Radonjića house. Today is ,,city tavern''

Image

Legation of Austria-Hungary (since 1899), designed by Joseph Slade. Today, and after restoration in 1982 is situated Institute for Cultural Monuments in Montenegro.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The Russian mission (since 1903), was designed by Italian architect Kordini.

Image

Image

Image

Serbian mission (since 1906) is located across the Palace. Before this year it was placed in a private home. It is currently located Ethnographic Museum of Montenegro.

Image

The Italian mission (since 1910), was designed by Italian architect Koradini. Since 1976, the building serves as a library ,,Đurađ Crnojević. You can see the impression that Italy wanted to make as this mission is the largest and had the biggest yard (with Austria-Hungary and England) has a sports fields.

Image

French Legation (1910), made in the ornate style. There is a story of the replacement projects, at the same time France is building an embassy in Cairo. Projects for the embassy in Cairo were mistakenly sent to Cetinje and because of that you have the oriental style embassy. Today is museum of library Đurđe Crnojević.

Image

Image

Image

British Legation (since 1912), was designed by English architect Hart. Anyway, I came across the information that is the oldest sports association registered Montenegro were tennis club. Tennis were played on a very terrain in the courtyard of the embassy. Since 1996 the building is the Music Academy.

Image

Image

The Greek mission did not have its own building and rent private home. The first was placed in Katunska Street (today Njegoš Street)

German mission was placed in the house Jovan Piper (today Njegoš Street)

Image

Mission of the United States, there is no the building today. In fact it was located in a former hotel, Lokanda''. Hotel has changed its name to 'Grand Hotel'', which was demolished after the 1979 earthquake.

After a long period of peace followed the ,,war game'': First Balkan War (start 1912) (when it is seen that Turkey was the week and united Balkan state start war), the Second Balkan War (start 1913) (Balkan states fight to each other about the division of Turkey's territory) and the First World War (start 1914). In post war period Cetinje loses its significance. In the 1918 Montenegro became the territory of Serbia. A little later the Serbia and other balakan states make South Slavs state, called Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, which clearly makes it clear that the Montenegrins did not participate in the creation of that state. Later that stae was called Kingdom of Yugoslavia During Second World War (start 1940) new Yugoslavia was born . New Yugoslavia had six republics (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro) and Cetinje became capital of Montenegro (capital of Yugoslavia was Belgrade) but it lasted until 13 July 1946, when the capital becomes Titograd (today Podgorica) ...

I don’t have photo of Podgorica beacuse when I was on Cetinje the darkness has fallen and I go directly to Budva. The daily route was Budva - Podgorica - Duklja - Shkodra - Ulcinj - Zabljak Crnojevića - Obod - Cetinje (where darkness catches me) - Budva

Image

Trip is longer than I thought when I started, mainly, it was 370 km of this,''historic trip’’.
