Jelena Krivokapic visited the House of Veljkovic in Belgrade, Serbia, during the European Heritage Days. She interviewed Katarina Veljkovic, the owner of the house. The house was built in 1883 and was declared a cultural monument in 1967.

House of Veljkovic – European Heritage Days

Asked what motivates her to organize a European Heritage Day event, Katarina Veljkovic answered: “I started renovating the house and I was lucky that the city helped me to restore the façade. It gave me necessary funds, so my way of saying thank you to the city and its citizens was to open my house to the public.”
