Appearance and creation of the Gallery "Milan Konjović"
The building in which the "Milan Konjović" Gallery is located today was erected in 1838 as a one-storey building on the Holy Trinity Square. This building was purposely built for a pharmacy. It is simple in its architectural conception and symmetrical in basis and appearance. The main façade is shallowly divided by vertical and horizontal divisions. The central projection is drawn from the plane, which emphasizes the entrance to the building. With more extensive works, this building was turned into a gallery in 1961.
