The museum is pleased to announce the guest exhibition 'Sword' by author Alexander Stanković, a teacher, historian, and theoretician of classical, sports, and stage fencing, which will be open to all lovers and enthusiasts of this most elegant martial art on Tuesday, June 18, at 8 p.m. 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 era, and the exhibited items, mostly replicas, are enriched with authentic pieces of yataghans and sabers from the collection of the Museum's Warriors' Weapons and 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, and we especially announce a small prize competition 'Sword in Stone' for our youngest visitors.
