Royal Palace

The Royal Palace in Dedinje was built between 1924 and 1929, on the orders by King Alexander I, as the official royal residence. It is a spacious and representative villa built of white stone in the Serbian - Byzantine style.

The palace is surrounded by pergolas, park terraces, pools, a pavilion and a concert terrace. The palace, located on the ridge of a hill, provides a magnificent view of Dedinje, the Kosutnjak forest, Topcider and Avala. The stone paved Ceremonial Hall is decorated with copies of frescoes from the monasteries Decani and Sopocane. The Blue Salon is decorated in a baroque style, while the Gold Salon and the grand Dining Hall are decorated in the style of renaissance. The marble columns in those rooms bear rich casetted wooden ceilings with bronze chandeliers. These rooms are decorated with precious paintings, cases and items from the royal collection. The rooms of the Grand and Small Library are decorated in the same style.
