Museum - Serbia
The National Museum in Belgrade was founded by a decree of the Minister of Education Jovan Sterija Popovic on May 10, 1844 as ‘’Serbian Museum (Muzeum serbski) whose purpose was to collect antiquities in one place and to safeguard them for posterity’’. It is the largest and oldest museum in Serbia and the façade of the building is characterized by the Neo-Renaissance style. In the first decades, its role was both the protection of art and the conduction of scientific research. It was also organized as an educational institution that constituted the national identity. The museum’s collections include over 400.000 remarkable archaeological, historical, numismatic and art masterpieces from prehistoric times to late medieval period and contemporary works. The Vinca statues (6th-5th millennium B.C.), King Radoslav's coins (13th century) and paintings of Paja Jovanovic (19th century) are only some examples. The last few decades, the National Museum has rich exhibiting and publishing activity as well as diverse programs for the public with new technologies in a prominent place.
