Palace "Riunione" is dominating the panorama of Republic square and, together with the House of the Press, is making a gateway to Knez Mihailova street. It is perfectly positioned beside the building of the National Museum of Serbia, and opposite to the National Theater. In the middle of these three magnificent buildings stands out the equestrian monument of Prince Mihailo Obrenović (ser. "Knez Mihailo"), as the central point of the square.
House of the Press (ser. "Dom Štampe") is one of two corner buildings (together with Palace "Riunione") that are standing one opposite to another, making a gateway from Republic square to Knez Mihailova street. At the time of its completion, it was a very advanced "ahead-of-its-time" modern architectural piece.
