Museum of Vuk and Dositej #TBIH2015
The Museum of Vuk and Dositej is a memorial museum dedicated to two great personas of Serbian culture: Dositej Obradović, the member of the Enlightenment and first Serbian Minister of Education and Vuk Karadžić, the reformer of Serbian language and creator of Serbian literary language.The older and richer Vuk’s collection was formed at the end of the 19th century when his daughter, Mina Karadžić-Vukomanović donated his legacy to the Kingdom of Serbia. This collection was the first collection of the National Museum to receive a holistic catalogue, Description of objects from Legacy of Vuk Stefanović Karadžić, written by Mihajlo Valtrović in 1900. The Collection holds personal and family belongings of Vuk Karadžić, portraits and art legacy, first editions of his books and numerous archival documents.Unlike the legacy of Vuk, the legacy of Dositej Obradović does not include personal belongings since they were destroyed in a fire in 1813. Therefore, the part of the Museum collection that relates to Dositej consists of paintings, archival documents, Dositej’s correspondence and books that include first editions of his works.
