Avakumović House

This building is located right in the middle of Knez Mihailova street, across the building of the Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences, at the small square with central fountain called "Delijska Česma" (eng. "Fountain of a Hero").

Year of construction: 1923

Architecture: Russian Empire style

Location: 34, Knez Mihailova street, Stari Grad district

Nearby: Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences, Students' Park, Belgrade Fortress, Terazije square, Republic square

Fun fact: Avakumović family is well-known in Serbia after Jovan Avakumović (1841-1928), who was a member of the Academy, lawyer, judge, and on two occasions the prime-minister. This building is maybe the only true example of the Empire style of architecture in Belgrade. Esentially, it is the late version of Neoclassicism created in France, in the early 19th century. It was named after Emperor Napoleon. Its main features are proportion, stressing the nobility and antique details on the facade.
