Zavicajni means homeland. This museum is all about the homeland. Local artifacts and exhibitions of local art and history are displayed.
Just a few weeks ago, I went to check out the new fruit exhibits, and the very exciting ancient Roman artifacts found just a few miles down the road!
Ravna, a village 6 or 7 miles from Knjazevac is the home of the most recent archeological dig in our region.
Painstaking work by international groups of archeologists have unearthed some amazing finds. Including glass goblets! How freaking awesome is that!?
I got to talk to the Senior Curator of the museum, Milena. Her English is spectacular. We had a great chat. The most spectacular part of the visit was being shocked with meeting another American. I have NEVER run into a foreigner in my little town. Coming in contact with one of my own peeps was a complete shock.
He was a Dept. of State guy doing some public relations stuff, repairing relations with Serbia. His advice to me was to basically be friendly and help mend the tear between Serbia and the United States.
Some days, I think I am days I think I am very diplomatic… other times, not so much.
Please come visit our beautiful town and museums. We have lots to offer! Just like the rest of Serbia!
