It comes as no surprise that I’m a sucker for a beautiful old buildings and they don’t come much older or much more beautiful than Palaces.
The funny things about Palaces is that as grand and impressive as they are, in a roundabout way, they’re also very unpretentious. How? Well, they were built to impress – this intention was always clear long before they were even built and so the fact that they still impress visitors from all over the world till today is something that I find quite amazing – not just because of how they look in present day (there’s that) but how clearly someone (or rather, a group of people)’s vision was achieved ages ago and how that vision still holds true till today.
Anyway, enough waffle from me – in no particular order, here are 11 of the most amazing Royal Palaces in the world!
1.) Buckingham Palace, UK
2.) Schönbrunn Palace, Austria
3.) Summer Palace, China
4.) Winter Palace, Russia
5.) Topkapi Palace, Turkey
6.) Royal Palace of Madrid, Spain
7.) Ahsan Manzil, Bangladesh
8.) Pena National Palace, Portugal
9.) Palace of Versailles, France
10.) Alhambra, Spain
11.) Mysore Palace, India
