The exhibition “Moravian Serbia – Between Reality and Legend” as a result of a research project, provides visitors with an interactive exhibition to learn about the origins of the city of Kruševac in 1371, the construction of the church Lazarica, but also the first years of regn of the city’s founder, Prince Lazar Hrebeljanović (1329 -1389).
The exhibition is conceived through two segments. The first refers to the city of Kruševac and includes Moravian architecture, economy, medieval food, clothing, but also for the first time, a professionally processed segment on diseases and medicine in the Middle Ages. The second segment of the exhibition presents the Battle of Kosovo and includes: preparations, course, and consequences of the battle, as well as the way in which it is presented in historical sources. Special attention is paid to the reconstruction of the course of this most crucial battle in the history of the Serbian people.
