Princess Ljubica Konak

Princess Ljubica Konak

After First Serbian Uprising failed, Milos Obrenovic led Second Serbian Uprising in 1815. Six months of fighting, some negotiations and lots of money spent on bribing corrupted Turkish officials, finally resulted in autonomy within Ottoman Empire for Serbian Principality in 1830. This is when Milos started to build his Court in Belgrade’s Varos Kapija quarter, but as soon as it was finished, he decided to abandon new Court for safety reasons as it was within range of Turkish cannons. His wife, Princess Ljubica remained in the Court with her sons and since than it was named after her, Princess Ljubica Court. Today it houses museum with interesting furniture and portrait exhibition.
