We will visit the baroque style Royal (Grassalkovich ) Palace of the little town of Gödöllő. Queen Elizabeth (Sisi) was taken with the palace during a hunting expedition, so she was very happy when it was given to her and her husband the Emperor Franz Josef as a coronation present by the Hungarian Assembly.


They spent several months a year at the palace because Sisi (Sissy) preferred it to living in Vienna.
Comandeered by Admiral Horthy, the palace was later pillaged by Nazis and the Red Army in 1944. One wing was turned into a nursing home, but it has been restored and since 1996, has been opened to visitors.
I am sure that if the royal couple loved to be here, you will enjoy your time in Gödöllő, as well.
