It was interesting to learn about the history of that dinasty , but the residence is not very interesting. With some furniture on the XIXth century Ottoman style most of it coming from a bourgeois family, the residence looks more like a merchant's house than a royal residence

Great small museum, the original serbian house from 18th century, the staying place of a brave Princess Ljubica, at the begining of forming modern Serbia. Very nice show is organized where you can try serbian coffee with "Princess" (don't miss it, costs about 2 euros) and feel and see the life in Belgrade of 18th century.

A residence built for Serbian princess, looks intact as if it was 19th century. Only 10 min of walking distance from town center, it is open almost every day in the week. Ticket costs less than 2 EUR
