The museum of bread
The Museum dedicated to the glory of bread, in the Pechintsi village (Pecinci) of Srem county in Vojvodina Province, has been established in 1995 and was named Jeremija (Yeremiya), after Slobodan Jeremić Jeremija – Jeremy, whose life idea led to the creation of such Museum collection. The Bread Museum is result of numerous years of research and collecting of painter Jeremija, who had dedicated pretty long part of his life to the principle and the role of the Eucharistic bread. According to his idea, the museum represents a street, going from the Earth, via bread, to heaven.
The Bread Museum collection consists of 2000 exhibits and artifacts, divided into the ethnographic, archaeologic and the artistic parts. Besides the Bread Museum in Ulm, Germany, the Bread Museum in Pećinci village destinguishes itself by the rich archive of the feast breads in the Serb culture, from the neolithic period up to the present days, and provides its visitors great opportunity to explore and discover various ancient tools and objects and methods of how the land used to be cultivated by the Serbs.
