Astronomical Society "Rudjer Boskovic"

Astronomical Society "Rudjer Boskovic" is among the oldest astronomical societies in Europe and the oldest one in the Balkans. Founded in 1934 by a group of students, the Society had only several members, but today it gathers more than 700 astronomy lovers. The main role of our Society is the popularisation of astronomy.

Astronomical Society "Rudjer Boskovic" also practices amateur astronomy observations. To accomplish this, in 1964, a Public Observatory within the Society was founded, which is still located in an adapted Despot's tower in Kalemegdan, Belgrade.

The Belgrade Planetarium is located in a former Turkish bath, in the lower part of Kalemegdan Fortress, since 1970.

Astronomical Society "Rudjer Boskovic" publishes a popular science magazine called "Vasiona" since 1953.
