  • Sándor Palace, now the Presidential Palace, built in 1806, the year looks modest, but cute. And, of course, is an interesting architectural and historical monument. However, no less interesting spectacle is the divorce of the presidential guard. Summary: an interesting attraction, which makes sense to plan their walks in Budapest.

  • It's worth checking out, if even just to see the guards.
  • Sandor Palace, built in 1806 in the neoclassical style, is now the official headquarters of the Hungarian Presidency. The palace was destroyed in the Second World War and later rebuilt.
  • Guards look very professional and building is beautiful.
  • If you visit the Casle, I recommend you to check this out too.
