description

One of the largest Baroque palaces in Hungary, the Gödöllő Royal Palace represents an outstanding national treasure from both historical and architectural perspectives. Constantly developing, it is a scene which serves cultural, tourism and protocol functions alike, while offering family-friendly services, too. It was built by Antal Grassalkovich I, one of the most distinguished Hungarian noblemen of the 18th century and minister of the crown office for Queen Maria Theresa. With the completion of the building, a new style in Hungarian palace architecture was born. In the time of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, the palace was one of the favourite retreats of Queen Elisabeth (“Sisi”). Besides the historical traditions and the faithfully refurbished rooms which satisfy the most scrupulous demands of protocol, the programme of colourful cultural events on offer makes the Gödöllő Royal Palace one of the most inviting and exciting institutions and tourist destinations in Hungary today.
