The Royal Compound of the Karadjordjević Royal Family including the Royal Palace, the White Palace, the Chapel of Saint Apostle Andrew The First-Called and supporting objects, is located at the highest hill in Dedinje, the luxurious urban settlement in Belgrade. The Karadjordjević family still lives in a part of the complex, while the other part of the compound is open for visitors.
Set in lush greenery at the very highest point of Dedinje, the royal compound has a magnificent view on Belgrade and Avala. The Royal Palace is the oldest building at the compound.

By the order of king Aleksandar I Karadjordjević, the first monarch of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, the construction of the façade of the palace made of white marble from the island of Brač was finished in 1929. The Palace was built in the Serbian-Byzantine style according to the plans of architect Živojin Nikolić and academic Nikolai Krasnov, Russian imperial architect.

The Renaissance ground floor of the Royal Palace includes the Library, the King’s office, the Golden Salon, the Great dining room and the Atrium. The Blue Salon with the painting “Venus and Adonis” by Nicolas Paussin is truly exceptional.

The wine cellar was transformed into a billiard salon, furthermore there is also “the men’s room”, the only place in the palace where smoking was allowed. This is where the king used to enjoy card games with his closest friends and a glass of wine from his wine cellars in Oplenac.

Private living quarters occupy the first floor of the palace. Today the family of Prince Aleksandar II lives here. The ceilings and walls of the basement are luxuriously decorated and inspired by the Moscow Kremlin. Here is the Hall “The wedding of the Emperor Dusan” with hand whitened verses of the old Serbian national poem on the ceiling.
