Some more photos with the Cotroceni Presidential Palace in Bucharest



On Cotroceni Hill, in 1679, Şerban Cantacuzino built a monastery. This was the place where a palace was built by French architect Paul Gottereau for King Carol I of the Romanians in 1888.

In 1977, Nicolae Ceauşescu made the palace a guest house, and the old church of Cantacuzino was demolished in 1985. Since 1991, Cotroceni Palace has been the residence of the Romanian President. The National Cotroceni Museum is open to the public.
(Wikipedia)







Aerial view. In this photo you can see the two courtyards of the palace, the one of the 17th century monastery (left) and the one of the 19th century palace (right).

And it's probably worth adding pictures of Rundāle palace although it is just a tourist attraction nowadays.

Spain - Moncloa Palace, Madrid (official president residence and office):



Moncloa is more a complex than a palace. They keep it a bit too secretive because of security reasons. You can find many pics of the main entrance, where foreign leaders use to be received, but you won't find many pictures of the interior and surroundings. They even thought on blocking google's street view around the spot. An aerial view:



Spain - Zarzuela Palace, Madrid (Official residence of the King, Chief of State)



* the Zarzuela palace is a relatively small residence which was chosen by the King instead of the larger Palacio Real (Royal palace). Some pics of the Palacio Real were already posted, but i'll just add one:



Some spanish regional president residences:

Well, here in Guatemala, in 1919 dictator Manuel Estrada Cabrera wanted to demolish the old Presidential Palace, which had been severely damaged by 1917 earthquakes, and build a new one for the centenary f Guatemala's independency, in 1921. Using that as a perfect excuse, he demolished it and held a "competition" between italian architects Guido Albani and Francisco D'Amico.

This was the winner, Albani's design:



And this, D'Amico's:



Everything was prepared for the construction start, but after Estrada Cabrera was removed from office in 1920, the national assembly decided a new design was required for the centenary celebration. With a very limited budget, they built in three months this horrible wooden building:



Luckily, the "Palacio de Cartón" (Cardboard Palace) as it was called, burned down in 1925. In 1927, president Lázaro Chacón held another competition for a new presidential palace. The competition was won by artist Agustín Iriate, but his work never came to be. Finally, in 1937, another dictator, Jorge Ubico published the basis for the design and construction of the palace and installed its first stone. The new building was finished in January 1943. It was finally opened in November of the same year. This is how it looked back in the day:



And this is how it looks today:

Bogor Palace, Bogor, Indonesia

The original colonial building on the site of Istana Bogor was a mansion named Buitenzorg (also Sans Souci, meaning: Without a care in Dutch), which dates back to 1745 as a country retreat for the Dutch Governors to escape the heat and diseases of Batavia. The location for the new palace was discovered by Baron van Imhoff on 10th of August 1744, in a village named "Kampong Baroe". On the site he ordered a mansion to be built, however the construction wasn't completed by the end of his career in 1750 and thus it was continued by his preceder Jacob Mossel. An extensive renovation of the palace occurred under Governor-General Herman Willem Daendels (1808 – 1811). The palace was further expanded into two floors, with a new wing added in the east and west of the original structure.

Later the new governor general Baron van der Capellen (1817-1826) added a small dome on the roof of the main building and founded the botanical garden next to the palace ground. However in 1834, an earthquake triggered by the volcanic eruption of Mount Salak, heavily damaged the old palace of Buitenzorg. The ruined palace was then demolished and rebuilt into its present form in 1856— this time with only one storey instead of the original two, as a precaution against further earthquakes.

From 1870 to 1942 the Istana Bogor served as the official residence of the Dutch Governor General, however state affairs are still largely conducted in Batavia. Since its foundation, a total of 44 Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies had resided in the palace. It is recently nominated as Indonesia's official presidential palace.

Jakarta presidential palace compound, Jakarta, Indonesia

Since its foundation Merdeka palace have never truly served the country as the presidential palace nor the governor generals' official residence. It is mostly used as a venue for important events of the government, while the governor generals took residence in Bogor Palace... previous presidents such as Suharto and Susilo took residence in their private home, instead of the palace. The palace complex consist of several buildings, the oldest of which are Merdeka Palace and Negara Palace.

Merdeka Palace today serve mainly as a symbol of the government. It face south towards Merdeka Square and was built in 1879.. the palace was build because Negara palace need more space to accommodate increasing administrative need.

the palace is not as open as Bogor Palace, thus there's very little photo of what the interior actually looked like..
