The house in which the writer Borisav Stanković (1875-1927) was born was built around 1850 on a plot of land purchased by his grandmother Zlata.

It was constructed as a four-part house with an open porch and doxat, a basement, a tiled roof, a well in front, a large courtyard, a garden, and a summer kitchen.

The house is enclosed by a wall made of unbaked bricks, and it features a large wooden double-wing gate that leads directly into the house from Baba Zlatina’s cobblestone street.

The house has four interconnected rooms: the central room with a fireplace, the guest room and Baba Zlata’s room on the right, and Bora’s study on the left. The museum was established in 1967. The house preserves a rich collection of books and written materials belonging to the writer. The house was placed under state protection in 1950 and was declared a monument of cultural significance in 1979

The permanent exhibition describes the rich book corner of the famous writer, featuring some of the oldest editions of his works and personal belongings of the author: his work chair, tobacco box, writing desk, and documents regarding the ownership of the house.

A part of the exhibition relates to the life of his family, so a segment of the house is arranged as an authentic ambiance of that time.

In 1969, Ivo Andrić visited the birth house of Bora Stanković and on that occasion, he wrote the following in the guestbook: “Satisfied to have seen it.
