  • 2 January, having carefully studied the site by looking in search engines on the Internet and scrolling through different guides, we have seen that today the Palace precisely open and drove 200 miles from Budapest to see this (probably) a wonderful Palace. But Palace somehow turned out to be closed. Without any explanation and ads, even on the door no piece of paper was not hanged. Suddenly appeared from somewhere the staff ran away from us to the cashier, slam the front door, heavy with only one word "tomorrow":( We were not alone, even such organized groups were forced to leave. That's how driven through empty 400 km. Don't know what you can recommend to those who decided to go, call them if only.
