The palace is well maintained mainly because parts of it are still used. It has a lot of history and artifacts inside. The architecture is beautiful.

We visited the Royal Palace first to witness the changing of the guard, then visit the interior of the Palace. The changing of the guards in scorching heat (32°C) was quite a spectacle, and we wondered how the guards in their heavy outfits and helmets...More

It is a beautiful building in the centre of this beautiful city. I think the layout is not very successful, not enough stuff in the rooms and certainly not enough pretty or interesting things to see . Also they show the chairs and sofas with...More

We only visited the palace grounds which were wonderful and very like Versailles. However we did not walk all round as it was raining quite a bit. It is worth a visit and if you have time go and see the inside too.

The way to do this is to get there early. The apartments open at 9am in summer, which gives plenty of time before the other elements after 10 am. And there is space at that time to help the air circulation (there are some fans)....More

This unfortunately was yet another place that was uncomfortable to visit due to the ridiculous temperatures. There are no ACs in Sweden which is totally understandable considering their geographical location and usual temperatures. What I cannot understand, however is the complete disregard for the guests...More

Well, it was similar to a marching band at half-time at a football game. To get a good position to watch the event, it is necessary to go about two hours early. Then the event took about one hour. Overall, it was not worth the...More

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
