This elegant palace is located just next to the upper station of the Budapest funicular on the Buda part of town. Other than a rather underwhelming changing of the guard, there's not much to do regarding this specific palace.

We went to view Sandor Palace by accident really, we were walking from the Castle to the Bastion and in-between we see Sandor Palace. It’s a true spectacle and we got there just in time for the military procession!
