House of King Petar the Liberator

Former house of Serbian King Petar Karadjordjevic is a memorial structure, which also features cultural events.

The memorial house of the beloved Serbian king is a cultural establishment where various exhibitions, workshops and concerts take place on a regular basis. It is located in a peaceful neighborhood, some ten minutes by car from the Belgrade center, and here you can familiarize yourselves with the destiny of the king under whose rule Serbia won two Balkan wars and the First World War.

The interesting fact is that King Petar lived in this house as a subtenant, and on top of the entrance gate, which reminds of a gloriette, three dates are inscribed; 1844 for his birthday, 1903 is the year when he ascended the Serbian throne, and 1921 for the year of his death. Behind the entrance, one can admire one of the oldest Gingko trees in Belgrade and the eldest Magnolia, over 100 years old.

In King Petar’s memorial room, on the first floor, you can see his reconstructed uniform and a mosaic made of related photos that provides interactive content about the king’s life in the augmented reality. While here, you can also take the opportunity to examine free exhibitions on the ground and first floors, and enjoy free concerts in a pleasant environment.
