There is really nothing around it and you can't go into it. There are a number of foreign embassy's in the area though so it can be seen while doing other stuff.

This is the presidential palace of the country and offers Buckingham Palace like pictures for visitors. The gates and the structure of the building is very similar to Buckingham Palace. It also has a nice fountain in front of the gates.

Walk the palace from the outside which has beautiful gardens where one can just stroll thru the palace and take in the history of the place. Great for picture taking with impressive architecture.
