We saw some cops guarding the entrance to the street where the house was. We came and asked them if we could go closer and they wanted to see our ID. We didn't have our passports on us but I had my Czech ID card. They called someone with my name and date of birth and then allowed us to enter the street. It was really weird as they never asked for my husband's ID. Despite not sure they would have been happy with and Aussie driving licence hahaha. We came quite close to the house, but it was still behind a fence. I believe it is open sometimes and one can take a tour, but don't know what days.

Looks like a cool haunted house, too bad getting through the police (it's right across from the presidents administration) is a real pain.

This is an incredible building, exactly as it looks in the pictures. However it is hard to access and we could only see it from the distance. Still impressive!

This building is located right in front of the president office. There is no need to right about it to the tourists, because it is unfortunately inside the limited access area since 2014. You may not come close to it without special permission. It's very pity and annoying.
