Palace

The majestic edifice – home of the long gone fortress’ commanders

The Palace is a monumental, multi-storey building belonging to the Lower compound of the Inner Fort. It is attributed to the second phase of construction, i.e. reign of despot Stefan Lazarevic. The Palace comprised three storeys: the basement, used as a storage facility, the ground floor housing the main hall used for public functions as well as the private quarters of the town’s commander, and the second floor where the palace garrison resided.

The Palace had two entrances – gateways. The staircase adjacent to the grand entrance with a semi-circular finish led to the chambers on the lower – ground level, currently under water due to Djerdap accumulation, which separated the entire Palace space into two parts. The latest archaeological research has uncovered the access communication to the Palace made from trimmed rock.
