Grassalkovich Presidential Palace

Grassalkovich Presidential Palace

The palace was built as the summer residence of Count Anton Grasalkovic in the 1760s in an extensive garden in front of the city walls. It was probably designed by F. A. Hillebrand in close cooperation with the owner. The palace was enlarged in the 1770s and the originally separate chapel was incorporated within the palace, which gave the palace its current form. The palace became the centre of society life and was visited by the Empress Maria Theresa.
