Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine opened the tourist season for 2018 and invited everyone interested in visiting the Royal Palaces to join the tours during the period from 20 April to 31 October. Media representatives who joined the first tour had the opportunity to refresh themselves with coffee from a wide range of “Bean and Leaf” products.

During the tours, visitors will be accompanied by professional tourist guides and will have the opportunity to visit the Royal Palace, the White Palace, the Royal Chapel of St. Andrew the First-Called and the Royal Park, as well as when available to be greeted by Their Royal Highnesses. The tour is a pleasant 1½ hour walk to get acquainted with history, art and culture of our country.

“I am very glad to open the Royal Palaces for another tourist season. The history and memories of the Royal Compound are magnificent, so it is very important that they are conveyed to our younger generation. Unfortunately, it is often the case that our people are not fully aware about the history and important works of art which are here, and organized touristic tours are the best opportunity to see the art and learn something new”, said HRH Crown Prince Alexander.
