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.

  • This is the current residence of the President of the Slovakian Republic, so you can’t visit it, but you can stroll and relax in its amazing garden, which will give you a sense of peace!
