Grassalkovich Presidential Palace, Bratislava
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Once a residence of some of Slovakia's wealthy nobles, Grassalkovich Presidential Palace today serves as the home of Slovakia's president. You can view the 18th-century palace's exterior, noting its similarity in terms of design to many other famous European summer palaces of the era. Admire the residence's ornate decorations and style, which combines both Baroque and Rococo architecture. Because the palace serves as an important government facility, it does not open its doors to the public. Be sure to catch the daily changing of the guard ritual, if possible, or go for a stroll in the public gardens surrounding the palace.

Podobno za pałacem są piękne ogrody, ale nie ma możliwości wejścia do nich, więc szkoda nawet nabierać apetytu.Supposedly behind the Palace are beautiful gardens, but it is not possible to enter them, so too bad even to take your appetite.show original
Grasalkovičov palác, ktorý je v súčasnej dobe sídlom prezidenta SR, patrí k historickým pamiatkám Bratislavy. Je to pekný palác, ale má dve nevýhody. Prvou je že sa nachádza na hlučnom Hodžovom námest... read more »Other, which is currently the seat of the President of the SLOVAK REPUBLIC, belongs to the historical sights. It's a nice Palace, but it has two drawbacks. The first is that it is located on a noisy Hodžovom square, which of the two parties are lined up in a very busy street. Front of the Palace it is edited, there are benches and a fountain, but because of the noise, it is not a place to rest, I saw people sitting around there even though it was very nice weather, tourists are just took pictures and drove on. The second drawback is that it tends to be a Palace open to the public only once a year for one day. The Palace belongs to the large garden behind the Palace. The rear courtyard of the Palace, which is visible from the garden, consists of a parking lot for the needs of the Palace as the seat of the President and is separated by a fence from the glass. The garden is open to the public free of charge during the day and in the evening closes. In the garden there are a lot of trees, in one of the representatives of the different countries, are trees planted aleji each tree is also the person who planted the tree. Garden stoneware pots and more large flower beds, fountain, statue of Maria Theresa on horseback, with benches and a children's playground. Also in the garden, however, enough to hear the noise from the street behind the wall of the garden. I saw there also, but I have not been to the toilet inside, so they don't know to assessshow original
The Bratislavan White house is a lovely palace, with a very nice park behind it. Well worth a nice stroll!
This is the slovakian whitehouse, a nice view
Beautiful and yet humble house of president!
The building itself is just pretty and the gardens are really small. In the garden there are trees that were panted upon the visit of others states representants.
