The Royal Palace in Belgrade – Serbia
Visiting the The Royal Palace that was built between 1924 and 1929 with the private funds of His Majesty King Alexander I(the grandfather of HRH Crown Prince Alexander). The Royal Palace was the home of King Alexander I and King Peter II (the father of Crown Prince Alexander). Today The Royal Palace is the home of Crown Prince Alexander and his family.
The architects were Zivojin Nikolic and Nikolay Krassnoff of the Royal Academy. The palace is built in the Serbian-Byzantine style. Attached to The Royal Palace there is a Royal Chapel dedicated to Saint Apostle Andrew The First-Called, the Patron Saint of The Royal Family. The chapel was built reflecting the monastery Church of Saint Andrew on the River Treska in Macedonia where the Holy Place of the medieval Serbian King Vukashin is located.
The Royal Palace is surrounded with pergolas, park terraces, swimming pools, pavilions and platforms. There are magnificent views from the palace towards the ridge of Dedinje Hill, Koshutnjak Forest, Topchider and Avala Mountain.
The ground floor reception rooms are very beautifully appointed. The Formal Entrance Hall is paved with stone and decorated with copies of medieval frescoes from the Monasteries of Dechani and Sopochani. The Blue Drawing Room is decorated in the Baroque style; the Golden Drawing Room (Palma Vecchio) and Dining Room are in the Renaissance style with impressive wood carved ceilings and bronze chandeliers. These rooms are ornately decorated with paintings of old masters and Renaissance painted Florentine Cassoni from the Royal collections. The Greater and Lesser Libraries are decorated in the same manner.
Belgrade’s long and storied history is known by its architecture, which varies from Byzantine and Ottoman to neoclassic and romantic buildings in the older neighborhoods, and from Art Nouveau to brutalism and neo-Byzantine design in New Belgrade and at the new Belgrade Waterfront. The city’s many theaters, museums, monuments and opera houses boast a deep and exciting cultural life while the beaches and rivers attract sunbathers, sports enthusiasts and partygoers on the popular floating river barges that serve as many nightclubs.
The airport of Belgrade is called Nikola Tesla and is located close from Belgrade City. You can reach the airport by the airport bus, regular bus and, of course by taxi.
The bus stop is at the big music fountain at the Slavija Square. There are very nice hotels of different standard, but we suggest you stay near the pedestrian street Knez Mihailova.
Knez Mihailova is the main pedestrian and shopping zone in Belgrade, and is protected by law as one of the oldest and most valuable landmarks of the city. Named after Mihailo Obrenović III, Prince of Serbia, it features a number of buildings and mansions built during the late 1870s. Here you will find everything from famous designer shops to small towns and also some art. Near the pedestrian street lies Trg Republika, The square is located less than 100 meters away from Terazije, designated center of Belgrade, to which it is connected by the streets of Kolarčeva (traffic) and Knez Mihailova (pedestrian zone). Many people consider Square of the Republic to be the center of the city. Through Vasina street it is connected to the fortress and park of Kalemegdan to the west and through Sremska street it is connected to the neighborhood of Zeleni Venac and further to Novi Beograd, which is a bit of Belgrade’s heart, where there are several attractions, including the National Theater, the National Museum and the Statue of Prince Michael. Near the Knez Mihailova lies the Zeleni Venac area where Belgrade’s oldest market is located.
A nice suggestion where to stay in the center of Belgrade, newly built hotel in 2016 and near Knez Mihailova is the City Savoy Hotel. A first-class hotel including a small SPA.
Check the magnificent Sava Bridge that is a cable-stayed bridge over the Sava river in Belgrade, Serbia. The bridge crosses the tip of Ada Ciganlija island, connecting the municipalities of Čukarica and New Belgrade. The bridge pylon is located on the tip of the island, which has been reinforced with large amounts of concrete and has been slightly enlarged to provide stronger foundations. Construction began in 2008, and the bridge opened on 1 January 2012.
To make an tour of Belgrade you must visit Ada and the Ada Lake, which is an artificial lake with lots of interesting water activities. There is a restaurant Ada Safari which offers fantastic food and home made Slivovitz
Another nice area to visit is Zemun (New Belgrade), located along the Danube river. A lot of nice cobbled streets with nice restaurants, and bars where you can drink or eat lunch ore dinner. Suggested restaurant in this area is Saran.
Another recommended restaurant is Sofa restaurant. in the interesting area of Beton Hall close to the Sava river.
Another great restaurant is Mala Fabrika Ukusa, located in Belgrade, serving large dishes of tasteful portions of Serbian food, so you can try out a lot of everything.
You see most of Belgrade by walking around, there are some guided tours of course for the lazy one. There is some interesting Museums of course, my favourite is The Museum of Yugoslavia is a national history museum in Serbia, located in the Dedinje district of Belgrade. The institution goes back to a centre that was established by Josip Broz Tito during his lifetime. Much like the presidentail libraries in the USA, Tito’s memorial centre was intended as a repository for preserving and making available the papers, records, collections and other historical materials relating to his life and work and the history of Yugoslavia. After his death on 4 May 1980, Josip Broz Tito was buried in the House of Flowers, set in the museum grounds. The museum has a collection of more than 75.000 items that illustrate the history of Yugoslavia throughout the 20th century, with the special accent on the life and work of Tito himself.
Dont miss the Belgrade fortress, it’s a good place to view the Danube and Sava river flow through the city of Belgrade.
Please visit the Church of Saint Sava when you visit Belgrade. It was built for almost 100 years ago, and it is still far from finished. This is the largest orthodox church ever built in the world.
Idag var det återigen dags för Noppes sommarfest. En årlig fest efter avlidna adelsmannen Noppe Lewenhaupt som alltid bjöd in till många festligheter, och ett absolut säkert tecken på att den svenska sommaren äntligen är här.

Huszár van de Stijl
In the ‘100 Years of The Style’ Year 2017, the City Museum Harderwijk organizes an exhibition dedicated to visual artist Vilmos Huszár (Budapest 1884 – Harderwijk 1960), one of the founder of the art movement De Stijl. From the thirties he lived and lived in Hierden village near Harderwijk.
With Piet Mondriaan, Theo van Doesburg and Bart van der Leck, Vilmos Huszár was one of the prominent initiators of the world-famous art movement De Stijl in 1917. Not long after the establishment, he already made himself out of The Style, he went his own way.
Vilmos Huszár developed into a distinctive painter, draftsman, sculptor, graphic designer, advertising designer and industrial designer. The Stadsmuseum Harderwijk presents a wide-ranging exhibition that shows this artistic versatility. There are paintings and other art objects from Huszár exhibited from his heroic time. The works are from private collections, the collection of collections of the municipality of Harderwijk and collections of some museums including the Stadsmuseum Harderwijk itself. A number of paintings, which are privately owned, have never been exhibited.
Sjarel Ex, director of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is art historian and Vilmos Huszár expert. He advises, at the request of the Harderwijk City Museum, as a consultant in the composition of the exhibition.

Red, yellow and blue – the three primary colours have become synonymous with the art movement known as De Stijl.
But that single iconic colour combination has tended to mask the reality of the diversity of ideas advanced by its various members.
At the end of the day, Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, Bart van der Leck, Gerrit Rietveld, Georges Vantongerloo and Vilmos Huszár all formulated their own individual views on colour.
Piet Mondriaan, nowadays a worldwide renowned and admired artist, spent his youth (1880 to 1892) in his parental home on Zonnebrink 4 in Winterswijk. His father had acquired a position as the Director of the School of Christian National Instruction and lived with his family in the villa directly next to the school building. Piet’s father and uncle Frits Mondriaan taught Piet basic knowledge on drawing and painting.
Mondrian to dutch design: 100 years the style
Exactly 100 years ago the art magazine and movement De Stijl was founded in The Netherlands. To celebrate this jubilee the Dutch Office for Tourism and Conferences organises ‘From Mondrian to Dutch Design’ in close collaboration with museums all over The Netherlands. Tourists and art lovers from The Netherlands and abroad are invited to get acquainted with all kinds of themes connected to De Stijl in a special tour through the country. For more information about these celebrations please go to this website.
Villa Mondriaan is proud to be one of the partners in the celebrations and will be devoted to De Stijl. Our permanent collection shows the early realistic and figurative oeuvre of Piet Mondriaan. Besides the special exhibition Figuration in Style will be launched during the annual event in honour of Piet Mondriaan’s birthday in early March. In the beginning of the twentieth century the art movement De Stijl caused a lot of commotion by enthusiastically championing abstraction. In order to reach universal harmony artist such as Piet Mondriaan, Theo van Doesburg, Vilmos Huszár and Bart van der Leck had a strong preference for geometric forms and primary colours. It is little known that these founders of De Stijl started their careers by painting realistic landscapes and portraits. Amongst others both Mondrian and Van der Leck kept painting realistic pieces besides their abstract work until their death. Our exhibition Figuration in Stijl turns the spotlight on the area of tension between realistic and abstract art forms which will be explored further in our museum. Both the early and late figurative oeuvre of the pioneers of abstraction will be the centrepiece of our exhibition.
Especially for 100 years of De Stijl our Pavilion for Contemporary Art will be devoted to Dutch Design and young artists who have been inspired by Mondrian and his contemporaries. We will shed light on different aspects of Dutch Design by offering innovative designers the opportunity to exhibit their work in Villa Mondriaan. Dutch Design in Villa Mondriaan is made possible by Arco, an innovative furniture factory from Winterswijk with a long history. Arco, designs, develops and produces design tables and other furniture in their own smart way.
