“The Royal Palace was built between 1924 and 1929 as the private residence of King Alexander I of Yugoslavia. This spacious villa built in the Serbo-Byzantine style lacks the grandness of the official Royal Palace (now the presidential palace), but it is far cosier and more elegant. The ground floor reception rooms are very beautifully appointed: the entrance hall is paved with stone and decorated with copies of medieval frescoes from the medieval monasteries of Dečani and Sopoćani. The blue drawing room is decorated in the Baroque style while the Golden Drawing Room and Dining Room are in Renaissance style with impressive wood carved ceilings and bronze chandeliers. Paintings of masters such as Palma Vecchio and Nicolas Poussin adorn the walls of the villa. The royal residence is surrounded by pergolas, pools, a pavilion and terraces, offering a beautiful view of the surrounding forest.
