Stunning Architecture of Presidential Palace at Suriname

Buying a ticket to Suriname gives you ample opportunity to explore various historical buildings and palaces at a very nominal entry ticket price. Our visit to the Presidential Palace was superb. You need to buy a ticket for entrance and then walk through a lovely garden and into the palace. It is very well maintained, though there are no guided tours included in the ticket.
