Dvorac Belimarkovića, Vrnjačka Banja

Built in the period between 1882 and 1887 to the design of Viennese architect Franz Winter for General Jovan Belimarković, minister to Serbian king Milan Obrenović and regent to the juvenile king Aleksandar Obrenović.

This summer residence was built above the boundary of the spa complex of the time, on the slopes above a warm water spring. The opulent Belimarković residence was built in the Romantic Historicism style, with Renaissance elements modeled on the rural villas of northern Italy. The main material used was white marble from Belimarković’s quarry at the foot of the mountain of Goč.

The house has been designated a protected cultural property of great value. Today it operates under the name Castle of Culture and houses the Vrnjačka Banja Homeland Museum and an exhibition area in which frequent concerts, lectures, drama medleys staged by the summer school, book promotions and exhibitions are held.
