On a sycamore-lined street in the historic centre of Belgrade is Yugodom. The property, built in the 1960s as army officer's accomodation boasts a colourful retro design, with furnishings rescued from rom basements and attics, auctions and antique shops. A "stay-over museum", it is a showcase of mid-century modern furniture and design. Unique place where you can travel back in time and taste socialist Yugoslavia in a mid-century aesthetics and design but fully in a modern comfort.
Yugodom offers two accomodations. The studio (sleeping 1 or 2) consists of a bedroom with a comfy double bed, a spacious working desk area, a kitchenette and an en suite bathroom with shower. It is dedicated to 1960s cinematography and it’s named after the legendary music-comedy film Ljubav i moda.
The suite consists of a master bedroom with a comfy bed and a (sleeper) sofa, a spacious living room/lounge with a seating area (which can be converted into a second bedroom), a terrace, a kitchenette and a bathroom with tub. The master bedroom is an homage to 1970s Yugoslav banned movies that dealt with taboo topics for those times and named “Mysteries of the Organism” after Makavejev’s cult film. The lounge exhibits movie posters from 1980s and is a tribute to the camp comedies of that decade.
The studio and suite combined make up the "super suite" with two bedrooms, or one bedroom and a study/office plus all the facilities of the two accomodations. Guests can use the kitchenette(s) to self-cater with foods from the Bajloni farmers’ market across the street. Otherwise an array of restaurants and bars can be found within walking distace.
