Royal Palace

The Royal Palace of Serbia's Obrenovic dynasty has become a popular attraction, with its elegant salons, crammed with important artworks and magnificent décor, open for public tours. The palace was built in the 1880s, designed by Aleksandar Bugarski, who set out to outdo all former Royal residences in the country. Today it houses the City Assembly of Belgrade, and is regarded as a national architectural treasure.
