July 12, 2020 - The exhibition, held on Dvorski Square in Cetinje, is part of the annual programme organized by the royal capital on the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the restoration of the Kingdom of Montenegro, and will run until September. The exhibition, entitled "Restoration of the Kingdom of Montenegro and the 1910 Jubilee Celebration" is being organized in cooperation with the State Archives of Montenegro, and the city's Tourist Board.
The exhibition includes more than 120 documents and photographs from the State Archives, which illustrate numerous events related to the jubilee ceremonies and the restoration of the Kingdom of Montenegro in 1910.
In 1910, on the day of the Feast of the Assumption, Montenegro was proclaimed a kingdom, and Prince Nikola was proclaimed King. At the ceremony that was organized at that time, half a century of the reign of King Nikola and the golden wedding of the royal couple were also celebrated.
Information for the exhibition states that the jubilee of 1910, according to many experts, is one of the most significant events in the history of Montenegro.
In the media of that time, both throughout Europe and on other continents, much was written about the fearless nature of the Montenegrin people "who have been fiercely guarding freedom in the Balkans for centuries."
The highest-ranking officials in European public life - emperors, kings, prime ministers, ministers, writers, artists and scientists - express their recognition and admiration for the Montenegrin people and their sovereign in many ways, the information reads.
The official opening ceremony of the exhibition, with guests present, was cancelled due to the worsening epidemiological situation linked to coronavirus.
