Serbian Orthodox Church Museum

The Serbian Orthodox Church Museum was opened in the Serbian Patriarchy building on 14th June 1954 by Serbian patriarch Vikentije. The fund base consists of monastery and church treasuries. Here can be seen the first printed books: "Oktoih" (Eight Melodies Book), first Serbian incunabula, printed in 1493/94, and the first printed book in Belgrade - "Tetragospel" from 1552. Certain exhibits, for their importance, have their own separated space: Serbian King Milutin's cape, 13th/14th century, and a silver gift-deposit made as a model of the monastery Ravanica in 1705.
