The Vranje National Museum is situated in the city of Vranje in Serbia . It is located in a building which served as the pasha palace during the Turkish occupation.

History of the Building

The Pasha´s House was built in 1765 and founded by the powerful Raif-beg Džinić. The building is one of the most beautiful examples of the Balkan and south Serbian architecture. The Pasha constructed both buildings. One building was set up for men and the other one for women. These two buildings are connected with a wooden bridge, which is located on the first floor. Bishop Pajsije purchased the premises from the descendants of the Turkish pasha and gave them to the city as a present. In 1881 a grammar school was established there and it existed till 1932. After that the palace served as municipal premises.

Vranje National Museum

The Vranje National Museum was founded in 1960. The first building, which faces the street, was used for that purpose. The other premises were used as offices again. At the moment the Vranje National Museum has 400 m2 of exhibition area and 30 000 exhibits. The museum is rather complex and has three departments: the archeological, the ethnological and the historical department.

Exhibits in the Archeological Department

The archeological department is associated with the prehistoric and the antique times. Among the most important exhibits from prehistory belong the exhibits from the Neolithic settlement in Pavlovci, which are part of the Starčevo and Vinca culture. The Ancient times are represented by objects from the period of the Roman settlement. The visitors can see rare pieces of Roman, Byzantine and Serbian coins from the Middle-Ages.

The exposition displays a fine selection of various materials and decorative fabric. You can also see the interior of a typical house in Vranje from that period.
