The Presidential Palace is an impressive building and it is possible to walk the changing of the guard here each day. It is on the main road from the railway station to the old town.

What a beautiful building built in the Barocco style! To be true most of all we enjoyed the fountain giving us gentle sprinkles from time to time. We think this would be a really good place to date.

It is located near the old town. The palace is nice but one can only see it from the outside. There is a small square in front of the palace and a nice park behind it.

Grassalkovich palace is the home of the president of Slovakia, where he hosts all the official visitors. Unfortunatelly it is open to the public only 1 day in a year, usualy in May or June.

Lovely building right along the main road from train station to downtown. There is a nice park/public space behind it. View from the front through the gates is nice. We were lucky to see the changing of the guard both on our way into town...More

The Presidential palace is a lovely building, surrounded by gardens that are open to the public. It makes a beautiful background for photographs.
