Beautiful palace, nice gardens
Jul 2021
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
Feb 2020
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.

Beautifull palace from outside
Feb 2020
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.

Currently covered up

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.

Pleasant building
Sep 2019
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.

Slovacchia is a very beautiful country. Bratislava is the capital, a very nice city. A lot of attractions, in my picture you could appreciate the Presidential Palace (Baroque style).

The official building of the President of Slovakia
Jun 2019
There are many things to see, but most importantly, the interior of the palace is not open to the public. There is a day every year when you can visit the interior, but I didn't arrive there in that day! Changing the guard takes place at 12.00 on weekends, but I have been there on a Monday. I missed! Anyway, the building is beautiful, the garden is beautifully arranged and with free access. In contrast, the statues in the modern style were not spectacular, or I didn't understand them very well. Very beautiful is the fountain in front of the palace, an earth globe symbolizing freedom. The most beautiful photos are with this fountain and the palace in the background

Neat Place To Live

Home to the President, who has no real power as we were told by our guide. I’ll take that job so I can live here in splendor with the ghost of Josef Hayden!
