Totally dissappointed! I was really exsited to see the academy, but the security was really umpolite and made me leave. I was told that I am not allowed to enter, although I tried to speak serbian the best way I could. I don't think I will come again.

We attended an excellent exhibition which combined a classical music recital. Naturally, one must have interest in art otherwise what would be the point of going there. We loved it. A great place right in the pedestrian section in Knez Mihailo Str. . For art lovers it is certainly an important place to visit when they have an exhibition. .... More

We like to visit Gallery of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts very often. It is part of the Academy building, one of the most visited galleries in the country. Entrance is free of charge. Some activities of the Gallery are organization of excellent art exhibitions, science exhibitions, concerts etc. Recommended!!

Positioned along the central shopping street Knez Mihailova, this Serbian academy of science is absolutely one of the most beautiful buildings in the city, it depends how long you have available for sightseeing, if time is short I would skip it, Otherwise if you have spare time a short visit inside is due.

It is possible to go inside but you have to be nice to the guards, and one of them has to go around with you.
