The Supreme Court

The Supreme Court is the highest court in the country. Court sessions are actually open to the public on a first-come. First-served basis and there are free 30-minute lectures in the main hall that explain how the court works. The Supreme Court building, majestic in size and rich in ornaments.

Serves as both home to the nation’s supreme court and as a manifest symbol of its importance as an equally independent branch of government. Visitors should be aware that the Court’s affairs may, from time to time, affect public access to the building or alter the programming offered.
