It is nice, not to be missed! It is located close to Knez Milahovia Street. The residence is presently a museum housing the permanent exhibition “The Interiors of the 19th Century Homes in Belgrade”. That period was beginning of transformation from Oriental to modern European way of living in Belgrade. There is gallery space inside, too. The Residence of Princess... More

The day I went, the Princess must have been out, so I didn't get to have coffee. Maybe she was exhausted by the school group who visited just before me. This is a lovely old home beautifully furnished with furniture, drapes, light fittings and artifacts of the period. You are allowed to take photos and can imagine the house full... More

This is great oportunity to take a look in medieval life of Serbia. One of my favorite attracton in Belgrade. Specially if you catch actress who's playing role of princess Ljubica.

If you like fairytale type stories of bygone princesses then a visit to this residence is nice. Also, if you are an antique lover, you'll adore the furnishings to be found inside, along with selected garments. There's not a huge amount translated into English so it's more a feast for the eyes than anything else.

This is another building which costs to go inside. I simply visited it and took a picture from the outside. It is a 5 minute walk from the Fortress and Knez Milahovia Street, so they can all be done together.

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.
