The Old and the New Palace were located in the once royal park which became a public park and got the name Pionirski park (Pioneer Park) after the end of the Second World War. These royal palaces were the homes of the national Obrenović and Karađođević dynasties. Today, the president’s office is located here as is the City of Belgrade Assembly.
As you enter the park the first thing that will catch your eye is a stone construction - the Observation Post of the Serbian Army High Command on Kajmakčalan. After the end of the First World War, it was brought to Belgrade by wagon and reconstructed in 1928. In the park you can freshen up at the “National Water Fountain” or at the Belgrade fountain with a sculpture of a girl holding a jug. Down the walkway, you’ll come across a monument erected in the honor of the most influential female artist from the beginning of the 20th century - Nadežda Petrović. Slightly outside the park - at Andrićev Venac (Andrić’s Wreath), there is the monument and memorial museum dedicated to Ivo Andrić, writer, diplomat and Nobel Prize winner, who lived in the house on the plateau named after him.
