The White Palace (Beli Dvor) is located within the same copmplex as The Royal Palace. King Alexander I built The White Palace with its own private funds, as the residence for his three sons: Peter (later King Peter II), Tomislav and Andrej, as their own private accomodation when they would grow up. Unfortunately, the assasination of King Alexander I in 1934 caused the destiny of his sones to take a different turn.

The young King Peter became the new master and continued to reside in The Royal Palace, while the completition of The White Palace was supervised by Prince Regent Paul. The architect of the palace was Aleksandar Djordjevic. It took almost 4 years till completition in 1937, when prince regent moved in with his family.

The ground floor of this classicistic palace houses a large hall and a number of drawing rooms furnished in the style of Louis XV and Louis XVI with large Venetian chandeliers. There is also a library and a formal Chippendale dining room. The first floor apartments are reached by stairs and a Gallery overlooking the Hall. The attic has further rooms and another library.
