  • It was a nice place near city centre and the payment of 200rsd as entrance fee was considered worthwhile as you viewed Ottoman influences there in the past. Worth to have a look in the House. 
  • Ottoman architecture at its best but with internal furniture also reflecting the new European influences A pleasant museum to visit 
  • For Student entrance is 100 rsd , nice to visit but not to much interesting , it's a house with room furniture only ! 
  • A beautiful and interesting example of Balkan architecture.
  • The Princess’s Residence was built in 1831 for Princess Ljubica who was the wife of the first Prince of Serbia, Milos Obrenovic, who secured Serbia’s independence from the Ottomans. The house is located in the heart of Belgrade squeezed between St. Michael’s Cathedral, the Patrichast and the oldest kafana in Belgrade. The front garden is large and the position is such that the house would have had a beautiful view of the confluence of the Danube and Sava from its back garden. The architecture is a mishmash of traditional Ottoman style and then modern European neo-baroque, Napoleon III and Altdeutch styles. Princess Ljubica’s Residence is a historic monument of the Obrenovic Royal Family, conveniently located and a great place to spend an hour or two to get the feel of the era between the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires. It’s a shame there is little information on the person the house is dedicated to – Princess Ljubica herself.
