This is Slovakia’s White House, which serves as the official seat of the President during his term in office. The palace also serves as the location for government meetings and ceremonies with foreign officials. The palace was originally constructed as a rococo summer palace in 1760 for an advisor to Empress Maria Theresa, Count Anton Grassalkovich. Visitors can only enter the palace during one “open door” day per year, which typically occurs in June. However, you can stroll through the French-style gardens behind the palace every day from dawn to dusk.
