Spirta homeLook at map
Spirta home at no. 9 Main Street is a protected cultural good and it was built around 1840. In its day it was one of the first multi-story family homes in the old center of Zemun and has been in the property of the Spirta family since it’s construction. The style of construction is pseudo-gothic which sets it apart from the surrounding buildings. The facade is build in the schematic of odd numbers which was a characteristic of romantics period. The eclectic spirit of that age is expressed in the facade’s decorative plastic, ornaments on the floors and the form of the carpentry, walls and ceilings.
The building itself was built from hard materials and is a triplex – with the side wing in the yard with an asymmetric passage. The interior is also richly furnished. For a time this was where the Homeland museum exhibition was kept which detailed Zemun’s past from its origins in 1945. Its construction line and volume are representative for old regulations from the 18th century. The house forms a unity with the main Zemun street.
