Department of History

During the establishment of the museum, the collection of the People’s Liberation Movement was formed, containing objects related to the Second World War.

Over the years, the collection has been enriched with items from various historical periods originating from the Vranje region and the southern Serbian regions.

The Department of History collects objects and knowledge related to the history of Vranje and its surroundings from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Over 3,000 items are organized into 7 collections and 1 fund, thematically covering a wide range of spiritual, political, cultural, and everyday life aspects, with an emphasis on events and personalities that have marked the life of Vranje and the Pčinja District.

The objects are categorized into the following collections: photography and postcards, decorations and medals, memorabilia, weapons, uniforms and military equipment, documents, coins and banknotes from the 19th and 20th centuries, technical and industrial materials, and objects of cultural and spiritual history.

Within the department, the Jovan Hadži-Vasiljević Fund has been established.
