Description

Built in 1760, the presidential palace in Bratislava has been the setting of a number of historical events. It has been the residence of the president of Slovakia since the mid 1990's. 

While the palace itself is closed to the public, the adjacent garden can be visited for free. It offers a playground for children and regularly hosts concerts. Statues designed by past and present artists are scattered across the garden.

Historical Information

The palace was constructed for Count Antal Grassalkovich in 1760. It quickly became the center of Bratislava's high society, hosting premieres of composers such as Joseph Haydn as well as glamorous balls organized by the royal house of Habsburg.

The palace was the president's residence for the first time between 1939 and 1945. After World War II, it was largely neglected and then renovated in the early 1990's. It has been the Slovakian president's residence since 1996. 

How to get there

The palace is located only a few minutes on foot from the old town. It is easy to reach by public transport and several parking lots are close by.
