Grassalkovich Presidential Palace, Bratislava

3.9
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.

  • This beautiful but relatively modest Palace is not to visit, but it was interesting to get past on foot. The Palace is situated within walking distance of the old town and is definitely worth a look if you're in the area.

  • The home to the Slovakian president. Pretty looking palace building! Immediately catches the eye and offers a great spot outside the campus for some pictures. Not sure if there is any kind of guided tours within the premises...but didn't see anyone going in either.
  • Very beautiful historical building! During night seems amazingly because of the lights.
  • Beautiful building. Guards.
  • Nice piece of architecture and a very nice fountain in front.
  • Great place to take a rest.
