The palace at Gödöllő was originally built for the aristocratic Grassalkovich family; later Franz Josef, Emperor of Austria and King of Hungary and his wife Elisabeth had their summer residence here.Communism saw much of the town's original one-storey housing levelled to make way for the blocks of flats which continue to dominate the town centre, as well as much of the Royal Forest and Elisabeth's Park levelled for industrial use.HistoryStone AgeAs far back as the Stone Age, this area was populated.Ancient timesThe earliest evidence of occupation is from the Roman period.
