Lovely gardens!

We didn't go inside due to lack of time. The Palace looks very nice from outside, more like an elaborate mansion. The gardens are lovely.

The view from outside is beautiful, however there is not much in the building itself as it is still a functional administration building. On the plus side it is free so there is nothing to lose by having a look.

You are going there to look at the wonderful building - stunning yellow outside with black turrets. Check out the staircase, internal decor - but expect nothing more as today it houses working offices - all of whom seem used to tourists coming in for a quick look

Very beautiful yellow classic building, right in front of the Imperial Museum. Just the outside was possible to know (we went on sunday, so it was closed to visit the inside).
