Once a residence of some of Slovakia's wealthy nobles, The Grassalkovich palace - 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.

  • The Presidential Palace is on a corner street that is busy. Very large square so good for pictures and seeing guards behind fence.

  • One of the place known as White House of Slovakia’s also known as the official seat of the president of Slovakia , one must visit this place to have the beautiful view of presidential palace which is near by city centre also well accessible by tram(public transport) too. Also outside is having view of fountains too where one can have pleasant time.
  • Great one. Couldn't get inside, but the outside looked amazing. :)
