At Kneza Sime Markovića 8, the Konak of Princess Ljubica was built on the orders of Prince Miloš Obrenović in 1831 to accommodate his family. Eventually the abode of a nineteenth-century noblewoman, it underlines the Balkans’ position as a cultural crossroads: a Napoleon III-themed room sits alongside a Turkish-style room with a Koran stand. It seems nineteenth-century Belgraders loved socializing too: there’s a big semicircular sofa for chatting guests in nearly every room. Look out, too, for themed events in the vaulted basement.
