House at 10 Cara Dušana Street

House at 10 Cara Dušana Street (Serbian: Кућа у Улици Цара Душана broj 10, romanized: Kuća u Ulici Cara Dušana broj 10) was built from 1724 to 1727 and is the oldest surviving building in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. The house is located in the neighborhood of Dorćol, in the municipality of Stari Grad, and was declared a cultural monument in 1987.

The building is one of the first finished edifices built during the Austrian occupation of Northern Serbia 1718-39. The construction began in 1724 and was finished in 1727. It was projected by the Swiss architect Nicolas Doxat, who was a colonel in the Austrian army at the time. Doxat devised the regulation plan for the entire section of Belgrade, especially the reconstruction of the Belgrade Fortress. In 1738 he was accused of treason and was executed under the walls of the fortress.
