In February I've sent an official card to Serbia but it never made it there. It is expired and the user hasn't logged in in months. 
My official card didn't make it to Serbia but this official from Serbia made it to my mailbox. Yay. This is my 4th official from this country.

Even though the information on the back identifies this palace as the Old Palace, after some googling, I think this is actually the New Palace. 
The New Palace was built in 1911 on the site of an older palace of Knez Mihailo form the 19th century, according to the design of Stojan Titelbah. Since 1922 the palace was residence of king Aleksandar and queen Marija Karadjordjevic, before they moved to the new royal complex at Dedinje. The palace was first converted into a museum, until 1950 when it was used as a government building of the republic of Serbia, and later on as the presidential palace. The building has a high architectural and artistic value and is a protected monument of culture. - in:
