If You just turn off the Studentski Trg or the Studentski Park and go down by the Visniceva str., You'll first pass some muslim monument called Sah Mustafa Turbe (the tomb) and before long, You'll come to this, very nicely designed house - museum, located in Gospodar Jevremova street. It is a memorial museum that depicts the life, work and legacy of Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic, the reformer of the Serbian language.
And also here You can get acquainted with the other very important figure in serbian history, culture and education, i.e. Dositej Obradovic who was the country's first Minister of Education. It is just real treasure of facts, artefacts, items which helps You to better understand the period of revival of Serbian culture when Serbs for the first time struggled against the Ottoman Empire, at the beginning of nineteenth century.
This building is one of the oldest preserved residential edifices in Belgrade.
It is projected as the Turkish town house.
We visited this house last year in fall and have been very surprised with its interior.
It consists of two floors and an attic.
The floor is wooden. Here You can see travel bags, glasses, stilt, rod, holster, smoking accessories, which belonged to Vuk Karadzic and those things are on the upper floor.
The ground floor is devoted to Dositej Obradovic.
If You want to know something more about the serbian history, that is definitely place to be.

The building is the starting point. Slotted amongst the modern blocks of central Belgrade this is eighteenth century Ottoman architecture frozen in time. It is enhanced because the street that runs right alongside has recently been made car free. So even as a small two storey building it sits proudly and makes a nice statement. Inside are the leftovers of Serbia’s national treasures, Vuk and Dosetij. They made their mark transforming the old alphabet from other languages imposed on the state for centuries into the Serbian language as it is today. Dosetij was 40 years older than Vuk and it is only a suggestion that they have met. But it isn’t important. Their legacy is united in the spoken and written words of the Serbian people. Well worth a visit. The guides there speak various languages and will happily tell the stories.

When travelling to other countries, we like to visit museums that teaches us about the local inhabitants.
We went to this museum hoping to do just that.
Unfortunately, there were no descriptions in english. In fact there was only Serbian.
What a waste of time.

We briefly stopped here and our Guide explained what these men did for Serbia.

Because we were under time constraints, he suggested that we go back here after our Walking Tour is over and see the exhibits inside this museum.

I had just gone to see the graves of Vuk and Dositej near the Holy Archangel Michael church. A local friend explained the history and importance of Vuk and his tutor. Then by chance we walked by this old school which is now the museum dedicated to them. The building itself is historical and interesting and the objects inside give more information about the lives of the two men. I would say that the only disappointing thing was that nothing is translated to English. I was lucky to be with two local friends who explained and translated for me or I would have been lost
