The Urban Planning and Architecture Collection was established in 1959 with the aim of collecting and preserving materials that serve as evidence of Belgrade’s architectural and urban development. The architectural and urban plans of the city, projects for buildings, as well as numerous archival documents, drawings, manuscripts, photographs and postcards with the images of Belgrade have been assembled through purchase and gifts made by state institutions or individuals.
We invite you to take a look at the objects from Urban Planning and Architecture.
