The House of the Tradesman Andonovic


The owner of Andonovic’s Palace was a wealthy merchant from Niš, Andon Andonović, one of the largest importers of clothes from Italy, France, England and Greece in that period. With its appearance and decorations, the building truly resembled a real palace.


LOCATION: Obrenovic Street, the pedestrian zone in the city center


The  façade of Andonovic’s Palace is covered with deep relief, with beautiful pilasters and capitals. The middle portion is decorated with a proportional figure of a man bearing a coin purse in one hand, as a sign of wealth, and a scepter in the other, as a sign of power.
