The building of the White Palace, located within the same complex as the Royal Palace, was constructed as per the wishes of King Alexander I as a residence for his sons.
It was built between 1934 and 1937, designed by the architect Aleksandar Đorđević. The ground floor of this classicist building houses the grand Ceremonial Hall and an array of salons arranged in the styles of Louis XV and Louis XVI with Venetian chandeliers. The building also contains the Royal Library that once housed approximately 35,000 books and the Ceremonial Dining Hall set up in the Chippendale style.
The palace complex also contains the Royal Family Church on the south side, connected to the main building by a columned porch. The temple is dedicated to St. Andrew the First-Called (the slava of the Karageorgevich family). The building was modelled after the Church of the Monastery of St. Andrew on Treska in Macedonia built in 1389 by Andrew, son of King Vukašin. The church was designed and built at the same time as the main building.
