The Residence of Princess Ljubica

The Residence of Princess Ljubica is one of the oldest preserved buildings from the time of the first reign of Prince Miloš Obrenović. It was built in 1830, based on the plans and under the supervision of Hadži Nikola Živković, the official Princes constrcutor. It was intended to be a representative court of the Serbian sovereign dynasty Obrenović. However, due to the proximity of the Ottoman empire, Prince Miloš lived briefly in the Residence. The Residence achieved its primary purpose during the first reign of Prince Mihailo Obrenović (1839-1842). 

After the Obrenović family were banished from Serbia (1842), various state institutions used the Residence and arranged it for their own needs for the following 130 years. In the 1970s, the administration of the city of Belgrade decided that the building, in accordance with its historical, artistic and memorial values, would get a new purpose and become a museum. After the remediation and reconstruction of the building, it became part of the Belgrade City Museum in 1980, and in September of the same year, permanent exhibition “Interiors of Belgrade Homes in the 19thCentury” was opened.

Permanent Exhibition


The exhibition consists of a representative selection of objects of fine and applied arts from the collections of the Belgrade City Museum. These objects were created during the 19th century as a product of European and domestic craft-artistic and industrial production. These objects belonged to the members of the ruling Obrenović dynasty and members od prominent families from the period. The permanent exhibition shows the emergence and development of civic culture, lifestyle and housing in nineteenth-century Belgrade.
