That's not entirely true - the ceremonial residence of the prime minister is the Catshuis in The Hague:




But his private adress is a rather simple rowhouse indeed - a bit better than the you showed though, I'm sure

Since we have a prime-minister in Sweden he/she, just as in GB, lives in a pretty ordinary house.

Sagerska Palatset.

The "palace" is located close to Drottninggatan which is a crowded tourist-street.





Our royal family lives in a resident which is a bit bigger.
Drottningholms slott.

As Belgium does not have a president, I'll post the palace where we recieve our foreign guests!

The Egmont Palace (Dutch: Egmontpaleis, French: Palais d'Egmont) is a large mansion at the Wolstraat / Rue aux Laines and the Kleine Zavel / Petit Sablon in Brussels, Belgium. Today it houses the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

It was built between 1548 and 1560 by Françoise of Luxembourg and her son, Lamoral, Count of Egmont, first in Flemish Gothic style, later Renaissance. The fabric was dramatically transformed in the 18th century, when the building was clothed in classical style, while the property passed onto the Arenberg family. The plans for this stage are attributed to the early advocate of neoclassicism, Giovanni Niccolò Servandoni. After a fire demolished the oldest part of the building in 1891, it was reconstructed in a uniform classical style.
The cour d'honneur

After the first World War the owner, the German Arenberg family, was forced to sell the building to the city of Brussels. In 1964 it was sold to the Belgian state.

Today, it is being used for receptions and meetings by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

I think they are both beautiful, but I agree, the first one is better for the country and its heritage.

Actually I bet he is spot on, he lives in capelle, looking at those houses ( nearly the same as the one I live in tbh.) He probably does live in something very similar. Plus balkenende has never been rich.

He lives in Capelle indeed, as far as I know, it's one of these houses.

So, very modest indeed, but a bit less modest than Ramses showed us

Ah, so that's the one. Well, only half of that actually, it's the typology of rowhouses where houses are sticked together in couples.

€500.000, 200m² floor space on a 420 m² plot haha, thanks to http://www.funda.nl/koop/capelle-aan...ijsselpark-75/

The thread is about presidential palaces. why post photos of the UN headquarters?
Also why so many photos of the same building, even of the same angle?
