Located in the central part of Hungary, in Pest county, about 30 km east of Budapest. Gödöllő is easy to reach from Budapest as it lies at the end of the HÉV suburban railway line (Budapest-Gödöllő HÉV Timetables ). Gödöllő is famous for its palace, which is one of Hungary’s largest palaces.

The Grassalkovich Palace was the summer residence of the Habsburg royal family. The palace was built in the 1740-s in the baroque style by Antal Grassalkovich.
