In the small Serbian town of Jagodina exist a small, unique museum dedicated to some of Serbia’s most famous citizens.
The Wax Museum was established in 2008 and is just one of six museums across Europe, and the first in Serbia, dedicated to various figures from places such as St. Sava, Kostunica, and Divac. Several songwriters and musicians are featured throughout the museum along with historical figures.
Much of the museum’s collection was crafted utilizing the donations of Professor Vladimir Tomcic. Along with wax figures of Serbian kings that fought against the Ottoman empire, Nicola Tesla, and Tito Josip Broz, there are some modern figures on display as well such as tennis star Novak Djokovic.
The museum is not only home to historical wax figurines; visitors will also find several artifacts that display Serbian history. Across the museum are original costumes, various weapons, copies of rare books and manuscripts, as well as objects from monasteries and war flags.
It takes around 30 minutes to see everything inside the museum. It’s truly a hidden gem of Jagodina.
