The Ethnographical Museum and Gallery of Frescoes

A short walk northeast of the Konak lie two interesting museums. At Studentski trg 13, the Ethnographical Museum is a lively people’s history of crafts and clothes in the Balkans. Beyond here, at Cara Uroša 20, the Gallery of Frescoes houses replicas of 1200 of the country’s most fêted medieval frescoes – a must if you don’t have the opportunity to visit the originals at the monasteries of southern Serbia, Macedonia and Kosovo. The style is fresh and colourful – lots of puce and blue.
