One of the most famous attractions in England, the Buckingham Palace is the official residence of the British monarchy since 1837. Today, not only royals live here, but they also do the administrative work. Originally, the palace is also known as the Buckingham House, and it was built in 1701 as the house of Duke of Buckingham. It has more than 800 rooms and its gardens are the biggest in London – no wonder why more than 450 people work here. This historic beauty survived the time, but bombings as well – during World War II, the palace was bombed seven times.

For so many, this is the most beautiful of them all. Located about 10 km away from Paris, in the Ile de France region. It was built in late 17th century for King Louis XIV. It has more than 700 rooms, and on the whole construction there were working more than 3,000 people. It is estimated that a building like this would cost approximately 2 billion to make today. But, the interior and exterior of the palace aren’t the only thing so fascinating. Versailles gardens cover more than 30,000 acres and contain 400 sculptures and 1400 fountains.
Smile at whatever happens.

Going to Vienna and not visiting the Shonbrunn Palace is the biggest mistake ever! The palace is one of the most popular and appreciated monuments in Austria. It is declared as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996 and is open to public, but visitors can see only 40 out of 1441 rooms. The palace used to be a royal summer residence, and many famous people were here at some point. One of the most famous musicians of all time, Mozart, had his very first concert in the Mirror Room. Shonbrunn Palace is a real piece of baroque architecture with an amazing garden with flowers, fountains and even a maze.
Smile at whatever happens.
