Serbian Royal Residences: Information, Discussions and Photos
 
I've checked and there isn't a thread about this, so I thought I would create one. I hope this is OK. :smile:

In 2014, the Royal Compound, which is the summer residence of the Serbian Royal Family, will re-open to the public. The first tours will start in April:
Royal Compound tourist visits will recommence beginning of April 2014 - The Royal Family of Serbia

The other residences of the Serbian Royal Family are The Royal Palace and The White Palace.

According to Wikipedia, another residence of the Serbian Royal Family is the Stari dvor. The Stari Konak, Mali Dvorac and Maršalat Dvora are previous Royal Palaces which were demolished.

Thanks for the video, An Ard Ri. :flowers: The interior of the Royal Palace is reminiscent of the interior of Middle Eastern houses/palaces (or at least the ones I have visited). Although I think I prefer the White Palace.

Here is a link to the (what looks like) official website of the Serbian Royal Palaces:

Danas, "the forgotten royal compound" will now be open to the public:

The Royal Library of the White Palace once housed approximately 35,000 books.

Wow! That is a ton of books! How sad, that so many of them likely disappeared during the war, when the compound was left to ruin.

USCtrojan, You are absolutely correct: 35,000 books is a ton of books!
How many of these books were a first edition?
Also, how expensive would it be to duplicate each of these 35,000 books?
Also, how expensive would it be to restore the room as it was at the time it was the Royal Library?
