This cultural events center
was established on February 24, 1992. Two years later the
cultural center joined with the "Orijen" movie
distribution and production company. Together they have
played a crucial role in enhancing the city's cultural life.
Among many annual festivities are the mimosa celebration,
local theatrical events, and a film and music fest.
The Herceg Novi
In 1956 the Archive was
returned to Herceg Novi after being temporarily relocated
to Zadar, Croatia. The Archive was relocated to Zadar by
Italians during the Second World War. The original archive
building, built in 1885, suffered severe damage from the
1979 earthquake. Shortly afterward, the building was renovated.
Today, the Archive is 700 m² in size. The Archive features
modern equipment and a library open to the public. The oldest
document in the Archive originated in 1685. The library
contains approximately 30,000 volumes and 1,000 periodicals.
The museum was established
in 1949 and officially opened in 1953. The museum building,
a gift to the city from the former mayor, Mirko Komnenovic
(1870-1941), and his wife Olga, is at least 150 years old.
The library contains at
least 30,000 volumes. Among the contributors to this collection
are Dušan Petkovic (5,000 books), Veljka Radojevic
(1,500), Doklestic, Daljev, Lucic, Subotic and others.
