>> ABOUT US


The beginning of higher university-like education in Serbia can be traced down to 1838, when the "Licej" was founded in Kragujevac. The "Licej" was separated from the "Gimnazija" in 1839 and transferred to Belgrade in 1841. Judging by the content of the textbooks, elements of astronomy were lectured at the "Licej". The traces of "physical" astronomy in its curricula can be found in the academic year 1854/55.

Milky Way/Light pollution - Kauai, Hawaii, USA. Behind the glow of an active volcano, the beautiful starry skies can be seen from a dark site on Kauai in Hawaii.

Unfortunately, light pollution from poorly designed and inefficient lighting is taking away this wonderful cosmic view from most people. In fact, light pollution is so common only a handful of the very brightest stars can be seen from the ground in most urban and suburban environments.
