The most beautiful Presidential palaces in the world

To rise to become president of a nation is without doubt the most distinct and demanding honor that one can imagine. However, there are also many advantages to such a powerful position. These dignitaries not only travel the world aboard exceptional aircraft, such as Air Force One, but they are treated as guests of honor wherever they set foot. Perhaps none of the benefits of being president are more rewarding than the stately homes they lived in during their tenure. And nations will often use these wonderful buildings as a means of projecting their cultural identity to the world. From the modernist Alvorada Palace in Brazil to the brightly colored presidential palace in Vietnam, these are the most breathtaking presidential palaces in the world. Here are the most beautiful Presidential palaces in the world.
