Medieval torture devices at Belgrade Fortress

Medieval torture devices at Belgrade Fortress

For the first time in Serbia, a unique exhibition of medieval torture devices will be on display in mid-April at the Belgrade Fortress.

More than 60 instruments and descriptions of torture methods which served to punish offenders in medieval history will be exhibited at the Belgrade Fortress, in the casemates of the Military Museum.

The exhibits are life-size replicas of medieval torture devices from the private collections of European collectors and historians.

The instruments were widely used for interrogations and punishment in the 16th and 17th century, and in some cases, similar devices were even used in the 20th century.
