Beautifully curated gardens surround the Royal Palace, all tended to by the royal gardeners. A variety of flower gardens bloom in the Athenian weather. The grounds are also decorated with statues and busts of the Gods and Goddesses as a sign of respect, with benches laid for when the nobility wish to take in the sun on a good day. Guards wander the grounds on irregular shifts to ensure the safety of the royal family. The stables are situated off the right of the gardens, next to the large field where the horses are exercised.
