The tour to the Palace complex of the Karađordjević dynasty on Dedinje hill consists of the Royal Palace and The Royal Chapel of Saint Andrew the First Called (+ optional White Palace).

The Palace was originally built for king Aleksandar I Karađordjević, on Dedinje hill, between 1924 and 1929. The palace was made of white stone in the Serbian-Byzantine style. After the World War II the Royal compound on Dedinje hill becomes the residence of President Josip Broz Tito. At the beginning of the 21st century, members of the Royal family Karađordjević were allowed, by new democratic government, to move back into the palace.

The Palace Chapel is attached to the southern side of The Royal Palace and linked to the main building by a colonnade of stone pillars. The Chapel is dedicated to St. Andrew the First Called (the Royal Family’s Patron Saint) and based on the model of the monastery Church of Saint Andrew on the River Treska in Macedonia, which was built by Andrew, the son of the Serbian medieval King Vukašin. The Palace Chapel was designed and built at the same time as The Royal Palace. The interior of the Church is covered with frescoes, painted by a team of artists from the Belgrade Artist Association. Following King Alexander’s instructions this group visited most of the Serbian medieval monasteries in order to copy their frescos.
Duration: 1.5 – 2 hours
