House of Vuk's Foundation

House of Vuk's Foundation was built in Academic Art style towards 1870, on the plans of Bulgarski, who was commissioned by the merchant Dimitrije Mita Golubović.

At first, the building was the head office of the Russian Imperial Consulate, then the Serbian Institute for War Orphans, and from 1879 it housed the Ministry of Education. Due to the growth of the ministry, soon there was a need to expand the building, so in 1912 was added a wing that included an interior courtyard. During the World War I, it was used as the headquarters of the Main Commissariat of Austro-Hungarian Army and as the Main Postal Administration. In 1924, it was added another new wing, by architect Žarko Tatić. In 1941, after the capitulation of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, the building closed, but it reopened when was founded the Department for German Language Teaching, until October 1944. The building was classified as a Cultural Property in 1966, and since 1979 it is declared a Cultural Property of Great Importance. In 1988, two years after the first renew of the façade, the building was assigned to the Vuk's Foundation. An extensive reconstruction took place between the years 1997 and 1998. One of the last interventions was carried out in 2006, when the main façade was revitalized within the project "Lepša Srbija".
