The Royal Palace in Stockholm is a must see! If you are lucky you may even see parts of the Royal Family here as this is their daily workplace. The palace was built by Nicodemus Tessin and has more than 600 rooms. Stockholm Palace has three museums filled with history; Skattkammaren med riksregalierna, Museum Tre Kronor och Gustav III:s antikmuseum.

If you want to take a guided tour of the different parts of the castle the tours are given several times a day. The tours are 45 minutes and are given in English too.

But of course you can also just walk outside of the castle to experience the exterior. On a sunny day, I recommend you to walk around Skeppsbron, up the castle hill and around the magnificent castle. Finish with a walk around the famous Old Town.

If you want to experience more Swedish history I recommend you to visit; Drottningholms Slott, Haga slott, Hovstallet, Kina slott och Gripsholms slott.
