The Tourist Organisation of Belgrade and Their Royal Highnesses, HRH Crown Prince Alexander and HRH Crown Princess Katherine, have opened the 2018 tourist season and are inviting all interested parties to visit the Palace compound on Dedinje during the period from 22nd April to 31st October.
“Browsing through the Palace compound is one of the most attended tourist programmes and it has been realised for the past 14 years. Due to great interest shown by our fellow citizens, as well as guests from Serbia and abroad, we have decided to introduce additional terms” said Mr. Miodrag Popović, Acting Director of the Tourist Organisation of Belgrade.
The Tourist Organisation of Belgrade will organise visits to the Royal compound every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, starting from 22nd April, until 31st October, with organised bus transportation. The departures are organised at the tourist stop on Nikola Pašić square in accordance with the following timetable: Wednesday at 09:30 (English language tour), Saturday at 09:30 (English language tour) and at 12:30 (Serbian language tour), and on Sunday at 09:30 and 12:30, both held in Serbian. The price of admission is 650 RSD and the number of group members is limited to 50.
Accompanied by professional tourist guides, tourists have the opportunity to visit the Palace park, the Royal and White palace, as well as the Royal chapel of St. Andrew the First Called during the one-and-a-half hour walk in order to get better acquainted with the history, art and culture that our country can be proud of. As a part of the tour, visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and greet Their Royal Highnesses, the Crown Prince and Princess, whenever they are present.
“It is my pleasure that we have the opportunity to open another tourist season, and that our citizens and other tourists will enjoy the Palace tours this year as well. The history and the memories of the Royal compound are inexhaustible, and it is imperative that we pass them on to younger generations and to educate them, as well. It is, unfortunately, often the case that our citizens are not informed about the important art works that can be seen here, and the tours are an excellent opportunity to see them in person and to learn something new.” pointed out HRH Crown Prince Alexander.
There is also the option of organising group visits during work days, with prior notice. Schools, student organisations and pensioner associations can visit the Royal compound in Dedinje within their groups every workday from 10:00 to 14:00 with mandatory prior notice to the Office of HRH Crown Prince Alexander by calling telephone number 011 306 4050, or via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. A group must be composed of minimum 15, and a maximum of 50 visitors. Website: www.dvor.rs.
