The museum is pleased to announce the temporary exhibition 'Sword' by author Aleksandar Stanković, a teacher, historian, and theoretician of classical, sports, and stage fencing. The exhibition will be open to all lovers and enthusiasts of this most elegant martial art on Tuesday, June 18th at 8:00 PM. The exhibition includes a rich collection of over 50 swords through the centuries, from antiquity through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, to the modern age. The exhibited items, mostly replicas, are enriched with authentic pieces of yataghans and sabers from the Museum's collection of Weapons and Warrior Equipment, representing the sword culture of Serbia and the Balkans.

During the exhibition, there will be guided tours, workshops, and interactive lectures on the theory of the sword and the history of fencing in Serbia and Belgrade from the Middle Ages to the mid-20th century. We especially announce a small prize competition 'Sword in the Stone' for our youngest visitors.
