The Residence is located in the center of Old Town, in Kosančićev venac, and is a monument to Serbian culture. Princess Ljubica’s Residence was built at the request of Prince Miloš Obrenović in 1831, as a private residence for his wife Princess Ljubica, who had lived there until the dynasty was deposed in 1842. In terms of architectural styles and room layouts, the Residence belongs to the Balkan style interspersed with western baroque elements.
The Residence houses the permanent exhibition titled Interiors of Private Houses in Belgrade in the 19th century, and reflects oriental (Turkish), European – central (Biedermeier) and western influences (neorococo, Napoleon III and Alt Deutsch styles). The vaulted hall at the underground level of the Residence lends an extraordinary ambience to the exhibitions, lectures, soirees and promotions the City Museum organizes at this venue.
