One of the hallmarks of town of Kragujevac, built in prosperous time for Kragujevac, in central Serbia in that time newly liberated from Turks. It was founded by Knez Milos Obrenovic. It is on the so called square of pupils (Djacki trg). I graduated there on 1998, but never forgot beautiful time I spent there. In my opinion it's must... More

Located in Kragujevac, Serbia. Founded in 1833, the school is the oldest Serbian high school south of the Sava - Danube line. It looks beautiful inside as it does outside. I always loved the smell of old books in the library.

As the first gymnasium on the Serbian territory (first Serbian was in Sremski Karlovci, then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire), it was an honor to graduate in this school! I spent 4 beautiful years in this school. Sideward, I would recommend this as a historical monument, as the gymnasium was established in 1835! In the ceremonial hall there is the... More

It is a representative middle-European building, bulded 1887. Academically sure in its elegance. Eclectically spaciously designed. A self-confident, outstanding building. The project was done in Vienna, and the construction lasted from 1884 to 1888. The woodwork is still in this period, and it is built in a Viennese carpenter's workshop. The building is under state protection as a cultural and... More

This is one of the first grammar schools in Serbia. After the Karlovci high school this is the oldest. The building was built in 1835. and school started working few years before. One of the landmarks of Kragujevac and Serbia. Center of the education, beautiful architecture. Some of the most famous people from Serbian history were students or/and teachers here.... More
