A lot of people tend to skip the Presidential Palace, as it isn’t located directly within the old city centre. However, it only takes about ten minutes to walk there from Saint Michael’s Tower and is worth the short trip. Also known as Grassalkovich Palace, the impressive building is fronted by an earth-shaped fountain and sits alongside a picturesque park. It won’t be the standout part of your Bratislava itinerary, but still worth visiting.

The Grassalkovich Palace is in the heart of Bratislava, close by to many of the hotels and hostels. You'll find it in Hodzovo Square, which is a main transport hub for the city. The Palace is the residence of the president of Slovakia, and although it is quite small the building is still impressive architecturally. You cannot actually go inside this building,(aside from the one day a year where it is open to the public and you can go inside and meet the president!) but there are gardens behind which you can stroll through.

Otherwise known as the Grassalkovich Palace, it is located in the, well, Grassalkovich Gardens.

Πρόκειται για ένα πολύ εντυπωσιακό κτίριο εξωτερικά, όμως δυστυχώς δεν είναι επισκέψιμο καθώς αποτελεί την κατοικία του προέδρου. Ωστόσο, έχει ένα πολύ όμορφο κήπο ανοιχτό στο κοινό και αν πετύχετε ηλιόλουστη μέρα θα πρότεινα να το επισκεφτείτε και να χαλαρώσετε για λίγο ανάμεσα στο πράσινο! Στο μπροστινό μέρος έχει ένα πολύ ενδιαφέρον σιντριβάνι που μου θύμισε υδρόγειο, το οποίο αν δεν κάνω λάθος συμβολίζει την ειρήνη μεταξύ των λαών!

Questo palazzo presidenziale è il cuore politico di Bratislava, e sebbene sia un po' fuori dal centro storico, vale comunque la pena di venire fin qui. Ci vogliono circa dieci minuti a piedi dalla Torre di San Michele ed è anche vicino a un grosso hub del trasporto pubblico locale, piazza Hodzovo. La sede del Parlamento è davvero bella, e sebbene non sia visitabile, spesso è possibile trovare le guardie d'onore, o sfruttarlo come sfondo per una bella sessione fotografica. Potrete comunque accedere ai curatissimi giardini sul retro dell'edificio, e godervi il fresco vicino alla grande fontana antistante.
