IT DID OPEN! One year later, it’s still hard to believe.
Being finally able to go inside the building that I had never set foot in before and see so many things that were hidden in its basements.
It was founded in 1958 as the Museum of Modern Art and it was the first Contemporary Art museum in this part of Europe. It’s a beautiful, angular, glass-and-steel modernist building on the banks of the Sava River. The works by Picasso, Matisse and Van Gogh and other local artists are just some that MOCAB has in its collection.
But one of the best pieces this museum has to offer is the building that it calls its home. You should take a walk by the Sava river, take a left turn and just observe it for a couple of moments.
The current exhibition is ‘Travelling the World. Art from Germany’, until March 25th 2019. And while you’re there make sure you check out the gift shop, the Museum has great publications in Serbian and English, as well as some other interesting stuff.
Tip: If you are a student the ticket would be only 150 dinars and each Wednesday its free entrance for everyone!
