Although I've lived in Sweden before and speak Swedish I have never taken the time to visit this place. Really beautiful building with lots of history, paintings, rugs and beautiful furniture. Actually planned to do and English tour but unfortunately it had just finished and so I had no choice but to go on the Swedish tour. Was a group... More

With its majesty, this building can definetely considered the perfect symbol of Stockholm. Tiny, clean and you can see from the distance it has been built by people who knows what they do! Definetely worth to visit.

We have been walking past the beautiful Riksdagshuset for weeks and finally took the chance to explore inside. What a treat! The building is beautiful and the views from the top floor are great. But it was the on-going commentary that really kept us enthralled. The guide was very knowledgeable about the political system and the culture that helps drive... More

I'm a bit of a political junkie so I was really excited about this tour and it did not disappoint. The building itself, a former bank, is quite lovely. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and I was so impressed with the amount of access we had. We were there on a Sunday and it felt like we had the... More

I did the one-hour guided tour of the parliament building. We got to walk around the beautiful and historic parliament building, but the main focus of the tour was the Swedish political system. I found this interesting, but someone with no interest in politics might get a bit bored! The tour is free, which is great for Stockholm and meets... More

A lovely building situated between the historic old town and the newer shopping areas, the Parliament is a real joy to come visit - provided you have the right tour guide. Thankfully, we did and it was a good time. The 1hr tour seems to fly by, and is packed with lots of information on the building, the nature of... More

Very beautiful and majestic building very close to the Royal Palace. we spent some time here taking photographs and enjoying the views all around. You can't miss this building if you are around Royal Palace.

I asked a tour, she said the place itself is good only if you are interesting in politics, which I am not, so i didn't go. However, the building itself is well lighted. The lightning there is amazing. I took some very nice night photos.

We didn't take the walking tour through the Parliament building, but we did spent a lot of time passing through its magnificent archways and walkways as we browsed the area between the shopping ("walking") roads and the Old Town. This is an incredible building that encourages people to walk through its stately archways and take pictures of the beautiful architecture.... More

This is a great tour to take and understand the government of Sweden. It was very interesting to take the tour and the guide was very knowledgable. This is a free tour so great if you are in a budget!
