This palace is one of the most beautiful buildings in Bratislava. Behind the palace, there is a big park which is very nice (especially compared to other parks in the country or even Hungary, however, it is nowhere near to the ones in Vienna).

This is just an amazing building which is well worth a visit just to see the architecture alone as it looks stunning and does really look like a palace from days gone by.

The Presidential palace is a very nice building to visit day and night. The garden at the back is very nicely kept in tact. Apparently Mozart used to play here when he had a girlfriend in this city.

We stayed across the street from the palace, at Crowne Plaza. You are allowed to get up close to the gates on either side, which is cool. The front gates are pretty, having black bars with gold decoration. The palace offers a public park on the back side, which has play areas for kids, fountain, and many benches to relax... More

This palace is at the 2nd stop on bus route 93 from Bratislava main train station Hlavna Stanica. Its not a grandeur building, but a modest one. Has a globe and water fountain in front. Good fro some selfies.

The palace it self is beautiful but we coulden't go inside the courtyard and had to watch the change of the guard through the fens. The park behind the palace was beautiful!

It is located in downtown and is quite imposing. There are not very tourist around, but it is true that you can't walk in.
