Fodor's Review

The National Museum, home to more than 400,000 archeological artifacts, rare books, historic documents, and artworks from the prehistoric era through modern times, is not to be missed. The centerpiece here is a bronze urn from the late 5th or 6th century BC known as the Vace Situle. Discovered in Vace, Slovenia, it is a striking example of Illyrian workmanship and is decorated with friezes depicting a procession of men, horses, and chariots. Extensive collections of classic artworks from Western and Northern Europe, Russia, and Japan compliment the already impressive exhibit of Yugoslav pieces.
