Anyway, here are some pictures of the palace building and its surroundings.
This is the entrance of the palace from the shopping street/Centrum:
You can see an air balloon in the background near the tower:
Lots of lovely flowers in the garden:
Found this tree near one part of the palace. Not sure what kind of tree it is, though. Anyone???
I thought that the tree resembles an elephant.
We were enjoying the shade provided by the elephant-looking tree (and resting our weary feet):
Here's another view of the palace when the fountain was running:
And here's R2 checking out the sudial. He said it was an hour behind ha ha...
Here are two video clips of the palace. The first one is the palace and its outer garden:
The second one is the palace and the inner garden:
On St. Stephen's Day, the inner garden is closed for public and you can only get inside if you pay a certain fee because they held a wine tasting party in the inner garden, but we didn't get in because we're not wine drinkers he he he...
OK, that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed the pics and video clip. Oh yeah, after getting inside we found out that we could have gotten up to the tower if we paid a certain fee (if not mistaken 500 HUF/person), but we thought we didn't need it because it was supposed to be a free day to tour around the museum. We didn't want to go back there because there were SO many people going inside that day, so we just skipped the whole tower thing.
