The Ethnographic Museum is located at Studentski Trg, and it represents one of the biggest and most important museums in Belgrade. It is indeed a must-visit location for all wanting to learn about ethnic characteristics, history and rituals of the Serbian nation.
Pictures you can see below are from the permanent exhibition of the Museum, named “Folk Culture of the Serbs in 19th and 20th century”. You’ll spot many different interesting traditional costumes, and those are just a small part of all the things this exhibition has to offer. Two entire floors are fully packed with costumes, dishes, furniture, weapons and many other things which were daily used by Serbs of 19th and 20th century.
A visitor can indeed travel through both space and time, and explore significant differences between clothes and daily routines between Serbs from, for example, Montenegro and Serbs from Eastern Serbia. Or Belgrade. Or Herzegovina. Also, modernization and evolution of habits and looks during 19th and early 20th century can indeed be easily spotted. This is because of the fact that many Serbs went to universities in Europe, and when they returned to Serbia they brought novelties – in fashion, lifestyle, decoration…
