The Royal Palace of Sweden

The Royal Palace of Sweden, located in the Old Town of Stockholm, is the official residence of His Majesty the King of Sweden, with over 600 rooms, being one of the largest palaces in the world. The palace is a daily place of work for the Kind and Queen as well as for the various departments that make up the Royal Court. The Palace was largely built during the eighteenth century in the Italian Baroque style, on the spot where the “Tre Kronor” castle burned down in 1697.

The Royal palace contains the Hall of State with Queen Kristina’s silver throne, Halls of the Orders of Chivalry, Gustav III’s Museum of Antiquities, the Tre Kronor Museum, Treasury, the Armoury and the Royal Stable. One of the main attractions is also the Royal Guard.
