Amazing how they could build such palaces more than 250 years ago! Amazing how they could afford it! Amazing it survived revolutions, wars etc.

We had no issues getting from the train to the palace, very easy and great signage in the Metro stations. However we thought we got there early and still waited in line for 3 hours just to get in even with tickets. Beware of line...More
