National Museum Belgrade – Serbian 19th Century Painting

The Serbian 18th and 19th century painting is certainly, in addition to the Serbian medieval art, the most important part of collection in the National Museum in Belgrade. In my opinion, it's also the most interesting to see. I dedicated my previous post to Serbian frescoes and icons. However, in this post, I will present the 19th century paintings. That was when Serbia gained independence from the Ottoman ...

National Museum Belgrade – Serbian Medieval Art

The National Museum of Serbia is the oldest, the most important and the most prestigious cultural institution in Serbia. Although it was established in 1844, it moved into its current building in 1950. The museum collection consists of over 400000 objects which, in addition to local treasures, also includes foreign masterpieces.

What is Happening in Belgrade?

I've been in Belgrade for just over two weeks now. This is the first time in 30 years that I'm staying here for a longer time. In the past, I would stay for a week or two, but never longer than that. I had a work to go back to and I had to shape my visits around my holidays. I love that I can spend more time here and that I can reconnect with the city. After all, I'm from Belgrade, it's my city, despite the ...

Vuk and Dositej Museum – Belgrade

A place in Belgrade that I've never visited before is the Vuk and Dositej Museum. Normally, it's a place where they take you with school, to learn about two of the most influential Serbs that shaped the language and the culture of the nation, after centuries under the Ottoman rule. But for some reason, I never went there. In all honesty, I didn't think much of this museum because it's in a relatively ...

Belgrade Fortress

The Belgrade Fortress is the most important historical site in Belgrade. Its position, overlooking the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, makes it a very unique place, because not many other cities have two big rivers. Views from the fortress are spectacular.

The city-fortress was first established in the 3rd century ...

Princess Ljubica’s Residence – Belgrade

The Princess Ljubica's Residence is one of the most important historical buildings in Belgrade. Built in 1830, it certainly had all characteristics of the Serbian-Balkan style houses. It is also among the most preserved examples of the civil architecture from the first half of the 19th century Belgrade. It was a luxurious court of the Serbian ruling Obrenović dynasty.

Back in Belgrade – Travel in the Time of Corona

I am back in Belgrade. I mentioned in my previous post that I was planning to go there. The main reason why I decided to leave London for a period of time is because I think that the situation in the UK is much worse than in Serbia. I also think that the situation in the UK will not improve any time soon. Profound mistakes made by an incompetent UK government at the start of the epidemic are not easy to ...

Nikola Tesla Museum – Belgrade

There is a place in Belgrade that I've been wanting to visit for a long time. Remarkably, I've never been there. Not even when I lived in Belgrade, before I moved to London. If you ask me why, I wouldn't know what to say. Perhaps, I thought of it as place that was right there and very easy to visit. Somehow, I never actually managed to do it. Until now! The place that I am talking about is Nikola Tesla ...

National Museum Belgrade – Yugoslav 20th Century Art (part 2)

This is my second post on the Yugoslav 20th century art. During my latest visit to Belgrade, I went back to the National Museum, to see this collection. I mostly missed it when I was there last time, back in November 2018. Sometimes, we go to a museum and after a while we become saturated with too many impressions. Then, it becomes difficult to process and remember everything. But, thanks to photos in this ...

National Museum Belgrade – Yugoslav 20th Century Art (part 1)

I first visited the newly restored National Museum in Belgrade in November 2018. Afterwards, I published three posts and presented three important parts of its collection: Medieval Art, Serbian 18th and 19th Century Painting and International Collection. Surely, all three of them are truly impressive. But, there is one more important part in the museum that I've only slightly mentioned, at the end of the ...
