The Museum of Contemporary Art is located at the confluence of the Sava and the Danube, at a spacious green plain opposite the Kalemegdan fortress.  Ever since its foundation, it has presented the most important artists, tendencies and eras of the Yugoslav, Serbian and international art of the 20th century.  The Museum has cooperated continuously with relevant museums, curators, galleries and critics, making their exhibitions topical and representative.  The very building has striking architecture and is worth your attention. In addition to this main building at the confluence, the Museum of Contemporary Art includes the MCA Salon and the Legacy Gallery of Milica Zorić and Rodoljub Čolaković. We suggest that you visit them all.
