Sandor Palace, Budapest Reviews

  • I could not believe, I was walking as a regular tourist in front of the Official Residence of the President of Hungary. In the Philippines, you can not walk in front of the Malacanang Palace just like that. Since this country is peaceful and no threats, you can only see one guard smiling at you. For a tourist like me, you will feel that you are in a safe and peaceful place. I hope, our country is like this. So I enjoyed my whole day tour around the complex. 5 stars. Approved!

  • It is the official residence of the President of Hungary, and the seat of the Office of the President. It has served as both since 2003. Sándor Palace is the 37th biggest palace in present-day Hungary. The palace is situated at Szent György tér 1-2 (St. George Square) in Buda, immediately north of the Budapest castle complex, which was the former residence of the kings and governors of Hungary.

  • One of the best changing of the Guards I’ve ever seen in Europe. The guards do a full, several-minute gun salute with a drum beat in the background. The one I saw was at noon

  • Simple architecture yet beautiful palace.

  • It's worth checking out, if even just to see the guards.
