I like the idea of walking barefoot on beautiful wooden floors in a palace. It's very small, sparingly furnished and doesn't take long to see the entire palace but it is interesting. The mosaic room wouldn't normally be my style of decoration but it works...More

The exhibition is very simple with little note. Entry fee is 30.000k much higher than which is offered. We visit at 15h30, 30min before closing time and they still sell me ticket but guide staff just rush us to finish and they can go home

Socialism is the predominant factor that hides the truth around this "royal" palace, worth a visit... Our guide over stressed that nobody of this 'terrible' royal family was still alive...While checking on google the answer was different..

Pleasant enough complex on sprawling grounds. The collection of vintage cars may be interesting to some.

This palace is really beautiful and doesn't take much time to go through. You have to lock your bags away and take your shoes off on the way in. Tickets are about $2.50 USD. Also keep in mind the actual palace closes from 1130-130pm for...More

The palace is right in the middle of town so it's convenient to spend an hour there. Mostly it's interesting simply for walking through the spaces that were occupied by the royal family until 1975 seeing some nice portraits of the kings and queens, as...More

Impressive and well documented Royal Palace adorned with furniture and artefacts. Be advised that it closes between 1130 and 1330 so either early morning or after lunch is the best time to visit.
