The Residence of Princess Ljubica is one of few buildings surviving from the first reign of Prince Miloš Obrenović. It was built between 1829 and 1831 according to the project and under the supervision of Hadži Nikola Živković, the official architect of the Prince. The Residence was intended as a luxurious court of the Serbian ruling dynasty, i.e. the Obrenovićs. However, as it was located in the immediate vicinity of the Ottoman Turks, Prince Miloš stayed there only occasionally. The Residence served its original purpose during the first reign of Prince Mihailo (1839–42), when it was used as the Prince’s residence. After the expulsion of the Obrenovićs from Serbia (1842), over the following 130 years, the building was repeatedly adapted to house various state institutions. In the 1970s, the Belgrade city authorities decided to repurpose it as a museum, in accordance with its historical, artistic and heritage value. After a restoration and reconstruction, in 1980 the Residence of Princess Ljubica became a satellite museum of the Belgrade City Museum. The permanent exhibition of the Belgrade City Museum titled The Interiors of 19th-Century Homes in Belgrade was set up in September 1980.
