Gödöllő


The palace of the Grassalkovich family, the so-called Hungarian Versailles, situated in Gödöllő, is one of the largest baroque palaces in Europe. The palace was built in baroque style, in the 18th century.

In 1751 Maria Theresa passed 3 days in the palace. In the 19th century Sisi and Francis Joseph often used it during their stay in Hungary. It was Sisi's favourite residence, just as Bad Ischl in Austria for Francis Joseph.

The palace was Hungarian governor's residence between the two world wars. At the moment the palace is under reconstruction, because after the Second World War it served as a barrack for Soviet troops and later is became a home for the aged. Nevertheless, a certain part of the palace (among other rooms the ornamental staircase, the ballroom, Sisi's reception room, the red marble bedroom, the study and the reception room of Francis Joseph, Francis Joseph's rooms, the café and the gift shop) is already reconstructed and can be visited. Guests are invited to have a coffee or tea and a cake in the café of the place.
