In the beautiful surrounds of Princess Ljubica’s Residence, you can enjoy the authentic experience of being a guest at one of Serbia’s most important cultural traditions: "slava", a celebration of each Serbian family’s patron saint’s day.
Serbs are the only people in the world who celebrate slava. That’s why, in 2014, the traditional feast Serbian families prepare to celebrate slava was included in UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Belgrade City Museum and the Tourist Organization of Belgrade invite you to Princess Ljubica’s Residence to be a guest at the celebration of a Serbian slava, where you’ll be immersed in a cultural ambience that’s unique to this part of the world. As your host acquaints you with the customs of the traditional feast, you will feel the spirit of the past and experience how everyday people celebrate Serbia’s many patron saints. Try traditional žito (sweet boiled wheat), enjoy a glass of wine, sample a homemade donut, and taste Serbian-style coffee during this half-hour experience, where you will truly be our guest.
The program "Be a Guest at a Serbian Slava", hosted in Serbian language, is held at Тhe Residence of Princess Ljubica, every Sunday from 2 pm (there are possibilities for scheduling and extra dates for organized visits of at least 15 persons). The program lasts for 45 minutes. It is necessary to arrive at Princess Ljubica’s Residence at least 10 minutes before the commencement of the program. Seating is limited to 45 persons.
