Residence of Prince Milos, Belgrade

The Residence of Prince Miloš is a royal residence in the Topčider municipality of Belgrade, Serbia. It was originally used as the palace of Prince Miloš Obrenović. It was built in 1831, after Serbia was given autonomous status in the Ottoman Empire. The grounds include a plane tree over 160 years old, one of the oldest in Europe.HistoryThe palace was designed by Janja Mihailović and Nikola Đorđević, and the construction was supervised by Hadži Nikola Živković, the primary builder in service of Prince Miloš. Some of their rich interior decoration of the building's ceilings, walls, and niches has been partially preserved to this day.During his first reign (1815–1839), Miloš only occasionally visited the palace. Later, the building housed the Museum of Prince Miloš and Mihailo Obrenović, a hunting and forestry museum, founded in 1929.MuseumIn 1954, the 150th anniversary of the First Serbian Uprising, the former residence was opened as the Museum of the First Serbian Uprising. The museum, dedicated to the entire period of Serbian resistance to Ottoman rule known as the Serbian Revolution, later served as the basis for the Historical Museum of Serbia, founded in 1963. The Residence of Prince Miloš was declared a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1979, placing it under the protection of the government of Serbia.
