ROYAL PALACE COMPLEX

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

ROYAL PALACE COMPLEX

The Royal Complex, built at the beginning of the 20th century for Serbia's royal family, can be found in the prestigious Dedinje district of Belgrade. The royal family has been living here again since 2001, which is why the complex is only open to tourists on weekends from April until November. The complex consists of the Royal Palace, White Palace, Royal Chapel, Thatched House, various outbuildings, as well as large gardens and parks designed in the English and French style.

The Slamnata kuća or Thatched House, constructed in traditional style, was the temporary home of King Alexander I while the palace complex was being built. It was later used as a studying room for his three sons, and as Queen Marija's art studio.
The Royal Palace was designed in Serbian-Byzantine style by architect Zivojin Nikolic for King Alexander I and Queen Marija. It was built in five years, from1924 to 1929.

The White Palace, for its part, was designed by architect Alexander Djordjevic in Neo-Palladian style, inspired by a number of 18th century English palaces, including Ditchley Park. The interior is in the English Georgian style. Completed in 1936, the palace was built as a residence for the king's sons. There is an outstanding collection of artwork here, with a number of little-known gems, such as Albrecht Altdorfer's Madonna Dream and Rembrandt's Man with Flute. After the Second World War, the White Palace became the residence of the Yugoslavian president - both Josip Broz Tito and Slobodan Milosevic lived here. In 2001, the palace became the home of Crown Prince Alexander and his family.

The Royal Chapel is dedicated to the Apostle Andrew, the Yugoslavian royal family's patron saint. The church was built at the same time as the Royal Palace, with both buildings being connected by a colonnade that offers a wonderful view of the city. During the socialist period, the church was used as a warehouse, but now once again serves as the royal family's house of worship.
