The palace interiors are lavishly decorated and still remember the time when the place was a summer refuge for the great warrior-king. But once you start to examine the decorations it turns out that the king was not only a man of the military. At the same time, he was a romantic lover, who adored his beautiful wife, queen Mary. He was a a loving father, a conneseur of art and even an amateur gardener. Protip: in wintertime, don't miss the illumination of the garden an the palace.
