Slavic Capitals in 2D

© Belgrade Archives
War scene of the takeover of Belgrade in 1521 by the Turkish Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent.

The Slavic capitals have exceedingly rich and colourful past, which is to a great extent preserved and safeguarded by their city and national archives.
This significant and heterogeneous segment of cultural heritage is manifested through diverse types and forms of written memory, from the oldest charters and codices, maps and plans, photographs, posters, important records, to the contemporary digital documents.

This exhibition, with the help of the archives as treasuries of memory, makes possible for a visitor to stop by the most interesting or noteworthy points of the dynamic past of Slavic capitals, discovering their historical, cultural, religious and other peculiarities, while also identifying some similarities
