Banski Dvor Cultural Center
CMBEBIH 2019 will be held in one of the most representative buildings in Banja Luka – Banski Dvor Cultural Center.
When the Vrbas Banate was established in 1929 and Svetislav Tisa Milosavljević was appointed the first Ban, the need was felt for the construction of a representative seat. The works on Banski Dvor began in March 1931, while the official opening of the building took place on 8 November 1932.
Banski Dvor included rooms for meetings, reception halls, city hall, ban’s flat with a suite for distinguished guests, central heating rooms, kitchens, toilets, dressing rooms and other spaces.
The building of Banski Dvor Palace, nowadays Banski Dvor – Cultural Center in Banja Luka, was declared a cultural and historical heritage asset in 1976.
In addition to the exceptional architectural value, this monument of architectural heritage has also partly preserved the authentic inner spaces, decoration and furniture. The originally preserved interiors make an inextricable cultural, historical and aesthetic whole with the overall architectural values of the building.
Banski Dvor Today
The main activity is of multimedia nature and includes: concerts, exhibitions, monodrama performances, video projections, public discussions, lectures, literary events, as well as activities of clubs and ateliers.
The interiors of Banski Dvor are very representative, and some parts, such as the Concert Hall, the City Hall and the Grand Hall, have kept their authentic look. Special attention should be paid to the Large Concert Hall, whose appearance and acoustics in particular capture the attention of both the audience and the artists.
