Today, in the PTT Museum, the Post of Serbia Day, 7 June was celebrated as well as 177 years of work and the existence of our postal service. On this occasion, Mira Petrović, acting Director of the Post of Serbia, awarded Predrag Arsić, a mailman of the post 38260 Kosovska Kamenica with a plaquette for the best employee in the Enterprise for 2016.

"We showed that we can do a lot and we achieved a great result in the past year. This year we have started well and I hope that at the end of 2017 we will also have record results. We are planning new business operations and bigger investments, and our IT sector, which has made a great platform for a short time, deserves special praise. I would like to point out that we have been granted permission to employ a substantial number of workers who have worked on a temporary basis. In this way, we will be able to provide security to those who have worked for a long time, and I believe that we will achieve even better results in the future", said Mira Petrović.

Public postal traffic in Serbia was started in 1840, by opening the first post office in Belgrade, on the location of the current Academy of Fine Arts in Knez Mihailova Street, on May 25th, according to the old calendar and June 7th, according to the new one. The Ministry of the Internal Affairs of the Principality of Serbia informed foreign consulates at the time, and "The Serbian Newspaper" informed its readers that they were allowed to send their letters, both official and private, at the facilities in Kalemegdan on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

On the occasion of 7 June, an exhibition "111 Years of Motor Vehicles in the Transport of Shipments" was opened at the PTT Museum, which will be open for visitors until 7 October.
