The article studies the institution of press attaché in diplomacy since it was created in the 19th century up to the present days. There are very few texts on press attaché in the Yugoslav and Serbian literature. There is only one paper dealing with this subject which was published in distant 1940, so this topic has not been studied and explored at all. This is the first attempt in the contemporary Serbian literature to explore the institution of press attaché. After World War II and especially in the contemporary diplomacy press attaché has been a very significant and relevant professional institution in performing diplomatic duties in diplomatic missions abroad. The author has given a short overview of press in general, in the Kingdom of Serbia, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and in the post-war Yugoslavia presenting diplomats who performed the duties of press attaché. The relationship between press and diplomacy as well as similarities and differences have also been studied.
