Place I Like

The residence of prince Miloš Obrenović resizeLidija Franovic from Belgrade was the first to send story about the place she likes:

The residence of prince Milos Obrenovic (Konak kneza Milosa) in Topcider Park in Belgrade is place which I love to visit. I made this photo in October 2015.

Building of residence started in 1831, after the second Hatti-Sheriff in 1830, when prince Miloš, a leader of the Second Serbian Uprising in 1815, has become a hereditary prince and Serbia got an autonomy within Turkish Empire. It was finished in 1836.

An architect of residence that was built in oriental style with elements of classicism was Hadzi Nikola Zivkovic, one of the first architects in modern Serbia. Zivković was also an architect of residence of princess Ljubica Obrenovic (Milos’s wife) in Belgrade.

teleskop1 fill 250x333 resizeBelgrade Astronomical Observatory is one of the oldest scientific institutions in Serbia and the only autonomous astronomical institute in Yugoslavia. Its past development forms an important part of the history of science and culture in these regions.” - by Dr Milan S. Dimitrijevic, Publ. Astron. Obs. Belgrade, 60 (1998),

It is located in the middle of Zvezdara forest which is one of the largest parks in Belgrade. The ambient of the Observatory’s complex is unique, but not well known by the citizens of this town. Unfortunately, because of the lack of funds the decay of pavilions is evident; nevertheless it gives this space a note of dreamy patina, combined with its elegance - this still is a perfect place for creative thinkers.

The telescope on photos is completely accurate, yet outdated for demand of today’s science. Although the Astronomical Observatory is working as a scientific institute, it also is a place of heritage.

If you have a chance to visit Observatory, do not miss it. It might appear as a time machine, but it definitely is more than that.

The SEE Heritage network would like to encourage all of you to send few photos and short text about place you like in your town. We will publish it.
