The House of the National Assembly (Serbian: Дом Народне Скупштине / Dom Narodne Skupštine) is the seat of the National Assembly of Serbia. The building is located on Nikola Pašić Square in downtown Belgrade, and is a notable landmark and tourist attraction in the city. Between its completion in 1938 and 2006, it was the seat of the Parliament of Yugoslavia and later the Parliament of Serbia and Montenegro.
The National Assembly "Skupština" is housed in a domed building with a grand portico in the style of classical rationalism. Its construction was postponed due to the outbreak of World War I which led to a number of stylistic modifications in order to accommodate the bicameral parliament of the former Kingdom of Yugoslavia. During the October Overthrow of Milošević in 2000, the building was damaged and some of its interior art work looted.
