Don’t know what to do while staying in Serbia’s capital? You can check out one of the famous Belgrade museums and see interesting art or cultural expositions.
The best-known museum in Belgrade is National Museum, founded in 1844. It has several collections with more than 400 000 exhibits, which even include many international master pieces. Miroslav’s Gospel is also a part of the permanent exposition. National Museum is located at 1a Republic Square, which is 5 minutes by foot from our hostel.
This museum is very popular among foreign tourists because there you can see parts of invisible (stelt) airplane F-117, which was shot down by Yugoslav Air Defence during the NATO bombing in 1999. Besides this airplane, there are also more than 25 000 modern and ancient weapons. The museum is at Kalemegdan Park, so you should definitely stop by if you decide to take a stroll.
If you like airplanes, make sure that you also visit Aeronautical Museum, near Nikola Tesla Airport, founded about 60 years ago. It is a bit far from the city center, but it is definitely one of the must-see tourist attractions.
It was founded at 1901. and it has more than 150 000 artifacts that are a part of rich rural and urban Balkan’s culture. If you like to learn more about people and tradition of the ex-Yugoslav region, this museum will definitely expand your horizons.
Museum of Contemporary Art
This museum is located in a building that has an artistic value itself since it is considered to be one of the most important objects of post-war Yugoslavian architecture. There you can find contemporary art from this region including the collection of new art media (film, digital media, video, photography).
Nikola Tesla Museum
Among all Belgrade museums, Serbs are especially proud of this one. It is dedicated to life, work and scientific achievements of Tesla, who is worldwide known for his great discoveries and patents. The museum is at Krunska Street, so it is relatively close to Slavia Square. Working hours are every day from 10 am to 8 pm except for Mondays.
