Museum of the City of Novi Sad Memorial Collection “Jovan Jovanović Zmaj” (The Museum of Zmaj)

The Museum of Zmaj in Sremska Kamenica is located in the immediate vicinity of the main square.

Zmaj lived in this house during certain periods of his life: 1875-1878, 1889 and 1901-1904, where he died. Romanticist painter Novak Radonjić also lived with Zmaje for the last ten years of his life. Both great artists were buried at the Kamenička Old Cemetery. The poet’s house in Kamenica has no architectural value. It is a complex that has been renovated over time, consisting of a main house and an auxiliary house.

Those from the street enclose a beautifully landscaped yard. The houses are of the Vojvodina rural type according to architectural elements. They have rectangular bases, gabled roofs and rooms in a row.

The main house, where the Memorial Museum was opened in 1933, has an interesting architectural detail on the street facade, a balcony built of wood at the level of the attic space (gable). The adaptation was also carried out in 1954, when a new exhibition was set up in the rooms of the larger house.

The memorial collection “Jovan Jovanović Zmaj” (The Museum of Zmaj) is part of the Museum of the City of Novi Sad.
