History: Even though the plans for building the palace for the Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences existed from the late 19th century, the completion of the project had to wait for almost 40 years. But even so, at first, only the Institute for lexicography moved to its premises, and the rest of the building was loaned to another institutions such as Radio Belgrade which started broadcasting initially from this place. Finally, in 1952, all of the Academy departments moved to the building. The edifice has basement, ground floor, mezzanine, and two floors. Other than the main entrance, there are seperate doorways from the street to the Gallery of the Academy, and to a couple of bookstores.
