Presidential Palace in Bratislava is a current place of residence of the president of Slovakia. Formerly, in the 17th and 19th centuries, the palace was a hub of artistic and aristocratic life.
The building was constructed in 1760 and belonged to Antal Grassalkovich - a Hungarian nobleman. This is why another name of this place is Grassalkovich Palace. In the 17th century, the Palace was frequented by a famous baroque composer Joseph Haydn who conducted several of his well-known works there. The gardens of the Palace are open to the public but the actual Palace is out of reach for a regular tourist except from special occasions. Nevertheless, you will find the architecture of this building fascinating.
