  • The Magistrate in Zemun was established in 1751, and in 1755 the town got its first town hall. It was a one-floor Baroque building, which served as a magistrate building until 1832, after which magistrate officials lived there.This building was burned down in a fire in 1867.
  • From 1823 to 1832, a new magistrate building was constructed after the designs of Zemun architect Josef Felber. Zemun Magistrate was situated in this building until 1871, when it was handed over for the use of the Court, which stayed there for many years.
  • The building is the purest example of classicism in the architecture of the Old Core of Zemun and a symbol of the development of the Zemun municipal administration since mid 18th century.
