The Archives of Serbia and Montenegro is situated in the outer part of central Belgrade, in the area called Senjak. This is a residential part of Belgrade, which stretches between the Belgrade Fair and Vojvoda Mišić Boulevard to the Vojvoda Putnik Boulevard. This is a quiet part of the city. It consists of numerous private houses and includes some very striking public buildings and monuments of culture and history, including the Vavedenje Monastery (dedicated to the Presentation of the Virgin Mary in the Church), Museum of King Peter I, Art School, Museum of African Arts, several embassies and ambassadors' residences. The Topčider Park with Prince Miloš's Lodgings, Church of St Peter and numerous smaller monuments are situated in the vicinity.
The position of the Archives is impressive: it is situated on the top of a hill, on the Topčiderska Zvezda roundabout, on the crossing of the following streets: Vojvoda Putnik Boulevard, Topčiderski Venac, Užička, Tolstojeva and Andre Nikolića Streets, and its massive building with the renewed facade can be seen from Kalemegdan, bridges across the Sava and New Belgrade.
Important note: the official address of the Archives – 33 Vase Pelagića Street – may deceive a visitor, because this is actually the address of the Isidora Sekulić Library and the back of the Archives building. The building can be entered only from the front, from the direction of Topčiderska Zvezda. A big parking lot for visitors is also situated there.
