A palace is a grand residence, especially a royal residence, or the home of a head of state or some other high-ranking dignitary, such as a bishop or archbishop. The word is derived from the Latin name palātium, for Palatine Hill in Rome which housed the Imperial residences. Most European languages have a version of the term (palais, palazzo, palacio, etc.), and many use it for a wider range. Is “The Amazing Train” a real palace that travels on rails? This unique, high quality, interactive children’s storybook app, written by Shoham D, tells the story of four children on their amazing journey, filled with colors, fantasy and exciting adventures.
