Description Change this

Spomen Dom was built in 1976. It is located in the city center of Kolašin, in the northern part of Montengro. It was built to commemorate the first assembly of the National Anti-Fascist Council for the National Liberation of Montenegro and Boka (the southern region of Montenegro). In the following years, Spomen Dom was used as a cultural and administrative center for Kolašin and the surrounding area. Up until the early nineties, local authorities were in charge of the building’s maintenance. Now that its maintenance has been removed from the region’s budget, Spomen Dom is no longer looked after and has fallen into disrepair. A few years ago, the local authorities considered demolishing it in order to build a new tourist complex on the site. However, the plan to demolish Spomen Dom has been stalled by the economic crisis. The building is still used today for municipal administration and by local political parties. It is also considered one of Montenegro’s most beautiful examples of post-war architecture.
