  • Both amazing from the outside and the inside. From the outside this was built like a medieval fortress, not surprisingly as there is a lot gold inside. So its architecture is striking as it is surrounded by modern buildings. But you can also take a tour to visit the inside. And you can see some of the gold reserves within the vaults, amazing!
  • Nice place The architectural part of the building it's amazing that historical part of it overwhelming great place. They show you how they destroy money and the gold is just a beautiful pictorial be had. No pictures also a great a memory to have. Wheres my gold hahahahahahahahaha
