I stepped inside soon after the start of their opening hours. I'm not sure if they weren't expecting visitors or changing something around or what, but they seemed a bit surprised by my wanting to look around. I think there was one other guy in front of me, but they just told me it was fine if I wanted to look around. I didn't have to pay any entrance fee.

The walk around is short (I didn't get access to the second [first] floor (not sure if that's normal or not)); but it was kind of interesting. It feels a bit sparse. It's a bit hard to imagine that someone would live in a place with such limited furnishings, but I understand that a museum won't include or contain everything from it's original time.

It's nothing particularly special, but the entrance fee (if you have to pay) is very low, so not much harm if you are interested.

Not-so-known outside Serbia, this is the palace in which Princess Ljubica, wife of Miloš Obrenović, used to live with her children. It's interesting to see the interiorsthe ancient furniture and the paintings on the walls, and sometimes there's an actress playing the role of the Princess.

This is the former residence of Princess Ljubica, the consort of Prince Miloš Obrenović of Serbia. The residence was designed by Nikola Živković, who was also entrusted with the construction of all governmental and royal buildings between 1820 and 1850. This residence has a simple, but elegant design. Its base has a rectangular form and is plain except for the section at the entrance which has three sided steps up to the doorway, and an Art Nouveau style bay window, just above the doorway.

The residence is now a house museum, along with exhibitions of the Obrenović dynasty of Serbia. Much of the exhibition space is given over to the family and its history, restored rooms and the functions of the rooms, including a private hamam. All the rooms and exhibits have labels and descriptions in English.

We were looking for the Question Mark pub and saw this place and decided to have a look. We weren't even sure that it was open and checked the door, it opened, so we went in.
Pricing was OK, only 300 dinar each adult. There isn't a lot to see in there. A few lounges but they were cordoned off so you couldn't get up close. There was a lot of open space in the floors.
The house tour is self done and its a one way system. There was some paintings of people on the walls.
The basement was not worth visiting. Not much to see down there.
We dragged out walking around and still only spent about 25 - 30 minutes in the place. Its a place of Serbian royalty with her being a Princess and married to Prince Obrenovic until he abdicated.
If your going past, pop in for a look. Maybe research it before you go to see if its for you.

We stopped here on a rainy morning. It was cozy and warm indoors. The entry fee is 300 for adults and 150 for kids.

It's a small building with about 10-15 rooms totally. Each room has pieces of furniture that are arranged in a certain style. There is a write up on the room placed in 2-3 languages in each room. Portraits of major people from the royal family and precious china adorn the rooms but it's difficult to see them closely due to the red cordon. Basement is bare and we didn't get the point of it.

Overall we spent 30 minutes even though we tried to stretch it out and hang around a bit longer. We would definitely give it a miss on a packed trip.

A trip back in time to the days of Serbia's monarchy, heavily influenced by Ottoman rule. The house is worth a visit for a glimpse behind the scenes.

A very small palace or residence is vey beautiful and cosy...the entrance cost 200 dinars around £1.80
The people working in there are nice and polite. They have 3 floors in that place. The basement with a beautiful art gallery the ground floor with some seating areas the gardens and the top floor with the dining abs seating area... I did not see any bedrooms ....
princess ljubica was a wife of Prince Milos Obrenović. Ljubica married Miloš in 1805 and became Princess of Serbia on 6 November 1817 until her husband's abdication on 25 June 1839. She had at least seven surviving children.
The house has an influence of the Turkish architecture since at some point went under the dominant ion of the Othman empire.

Residence of Princess Ljubica is a big house with a park in the surroundings located in the center of Belgrade, the main city in Serbia. The building has an Oriental façade and here lived the wife of Prince Milos. If you visit this house, you can see oriental designs in some rooms or a hammam in the ground floor and western designs in the upper floor. Some of the objects are not original, but this museum is very interesting.

I really wanted to see this place as I love royal residences and fascinated with how royalty lived in the past. Unfortunately I was disappointed in Princess Ljubica's residence, it was distinctly underwhelming. You only need about 30 minutes in total for your visit even if you read all the texts in English. It's very sparsely furnished. The Ottoman style is very light and airy and what little furniture is there is interesting but overall it's not worth seeking out specifically but OK if you happen to be passing by. The staff member on the desk was incredibly rude, kept me waiting a long time before issuing a ticket as she in conversation with a friend/colleague. She then rattled through a brief explanation of the place in about 20 seconds and made it clear she found this aspect of her job a chore. I was made to feel as if I was being a nuisance by visiting.
