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

Thankfully, the museum was free on the day I went. Not sure I would have paid money to go in. Not much to see and almost no descriptions. I went hoping to learn who Princess Ljubica was, but found no information anywhere in the museum about her. Disappointing.

I love museums and historic houses, but this place just does NOT come to life. I was expecting to get a much better feel for the different time periods. Belgrade needs better curators.

This beautiful small museaum gives you a nice idea of a dwelling of nobels. Wat is particukarly interesting is to see the contrast between the ottoman style of the house and the habsburg furniture, in a way the story of Serbia, torn between those two empires. You can easily visit in 20 minutes.
