Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Located just a short walk from the centre of Bratislava and although you can't tour the presidential palace the place is quite picturesque and worthy of a photo stop. The fountain at the front is quite cooling on what for us was a hot summers day and if you visit at 12 you will be able to witness the changing of the guard.
Throughout the year certain events are held in and around the building and to the rear is a pleasant garden, along one side of which is a row plaques with the names of every president of Slovakia.
The gardens are quite plain and lack any kind of floral display.
Worth a couple of hours of anyone's time.

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!

Beautiful palace with very nice gardens open to the public. There are some interesting monuments around including the Planet of Peace fountain (which, by the way, is far smaller than advertised on various websites, not even close to 21 meters high). I liked the trees plated by various country presidents, each one with a stone plate mentioning the name of the president/country and the year of planting. You can have some fun searching for your (ex)president.

Stunning building and we were lucky enough to see the guards changing. The gardens are free to roam around in but not a great deal of things to see in it, lacking on flowers etc.

Beautiful, huge palace with a lot of flags, home to the president of Slovakia. The interior is not open to the public. Nice globe fountain in front of the palace. Located about minutes walk from the old town. There is a large garden behind it, nothing special with a fountain without water and no flowers at all, not worth a visit to the garden.

The presidential palace is the official residence of the President of Slovakia. When I visited in October, the whole facade was covered and there was little to see. So I can only rate it like I see it.

We found the palace as a result of taking a walk around the similarly named gardens and public park.

The gardens look in need of a bit of care and attention.
