WHERE IS IT ?
The Republic Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments – Belgrade, is situated at 11 Radoslava Grujića Street in Belgrade, within the municipality of Vračar.
The space currently housing the Republic Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments – Belgrade belonged to the Minh family, which left a significant mark on the history of Serbia. They played a pivotal role in the development of industry and mining in the Rtanj mountain area, as well as in the construction of several private villas in Belgrade, which are now part of the city's valuable cultural heritage. After World War II, this villa, built in the interwar period, was nationalized, leading most members of the family, who experienced persecution and discrimination due to their Jewish origin, to leave Belgrade.
The space of the Republic Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments – Belgrade consists of the main building and two auxiliary structures. In the main building, there are departments for documentation, architecture, and general affairs. The auxiliary structure houses the painting department and the physical-chemical laboratory. In another auxiliary structure (a barrack-type building), there are the accounting department and painting conservation workshops.
