“Belgrade Days” will be traditionally held during 16-19 of April. These dates were not chosen accidentally: On April 16 878, Belgrade was mentioned for the first time in a written document, and on April 19 1867 the keys of the city of Belgrade were handed to Prince Mihailo Obrenović by a Turkish pasha, and this event symbolically meant freedom for Belgrade. Both citizens and tourists in Belgrade will have the opportunity to enjoy in 40 different cultural, historical and music programs free of charge. April is the most beautiful month in Belgrade, and the City wanted to inspire everybody to use their time to go out, enjoy and appreciate beautiful weather and nature waking up.
During this period in April, The Museum of the Serbian Orthodox Church will open its doors and expose the original ehxibits of Prince Lazar’s Uniforme he wore during the famous Battle of Kosovo (1389) and Jefimija’s Praise to Prince Lazar (15th century). Museum will be open each day (16-19 April) from 10am to 7pm. All interested in guided tour may apply via this email: email@example.com by sending their name and phone number.
