The New Palace was built for the residential needs of the Karageorgevich dynasty during the period between 1911 and 1922.
The building was designed by the renowned Belgrade architect Stojan Titelbah, upon the site of the demolished Palace of the Crown Prince Mihailo Obrenović.
The building of the New Palace, with four stories and the typical corner dome, represents a valuable architectural work of Belgrade construction after World War I. The first floor housed the private and working rooms of the King and Queen: bedrooms with access rooms, cabinets, salons, library and dining hall. The second floor contained the English and Japanese salons, bedrooms and the library. The furniture and interior design bear details in the styles of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI.
The New Palace was the official residence of King Alexander Karageorgevich between 1922 and 1933, thereafter the palace was, in accordance with the king’s wishes, turned over to the Museum of Prince Paul that was moved there in 1934. The museum collections were located at the New Palace until 1948, when the building was handed over to the Assembly of Serbia. The New Court is currently the office of the President of the Republic of Serbia.
