The residence of princess Ljubica is one of the most representative examples of Belgrade city architecture of the 1st half of 19th century. Constructed between 1829 and 1830 following a design idea by Knez Milos himself, the residence was intended to have a twofold purpose. One was to serve as a residence for his family - the princess Ljubica and sons Milan and Mihailo, while at the same time acting as a court. The residence was constructed under the leadership of Hadzi-Nikola Zivkovic, a pioneer in Serbian masonry.
