Tourist Attraction in Belgrade: Ethnographic Museum of Belgrade
The Ethnographic Museum of Belgrade is located in Belgrade, Serbia. Built in February 1901, the museum was designed in the past but never built. The first ethnographic objects were imported into Serbia at the beginning of the 19th century and in 1844 some of them were included in the collection of the National Museum of Serbia. The museum houses more than 1,600 objects, representing the uses and rural and urban culture of the Balkan population, between the 19th and 20th centuries. Traditional costumes, handicrafts, such as lace, embroidery, jewelery, pottery, glasses are displayed. A section is devoted to architecture and construction techniques, with the transition from oriental style to western patterns, to everyday objects, to the rural and town houses. Crafted and industrial toys as well as the means of transport and the ornaments used for shooting animals testify to the technological development and the different economic and social levels of the populations. The collection of weapons proposes finds ranging from the Neolithic, to the Celtic period, to the Middle Ages, until the 20th century; particular musical instruments of the nineteenth century are also exhibited.
