Who doesn't love crown jewels?! While there is not a lot to see, what is available is worth drooling over for a quick visit.

I believe it's small part of Treasury. There are real crowns (with lots of diamonds), swords and some extra pieces belongs to Swedish Kings. You can't take your eyes of the crowns. There is one strict rule in there, no photos. Taking photos is forbidden. They are watching you from cameras and if you try to take a photo, they... More

The treasury comes with the pack if you buy the visit to the Royal apartments. It is nice to check all of the treasures but if you don't have a guide close by giving the explanation about the treasures, you feel a little lost.

The Swedish crown jewels are very lovely but almost impossible to see in the very badly lit dungeon/vault in which they are housed. Of course light is bad for textiles, and the crowns all have beautiful embroidered blue silk tops, but light does nothing to gold, silver, diamonds, emeralds, etc. Yet, it's dark as a tomb in there, even too...

The treasury is not very large, but inside are the coronation crowns, swords, and jewels of the various Swedish monarchs and royals. It takes about 20-30 minutes to see the exhibits and there's information in multiple language to supplement the displays. Everything is quite ornate and beautiful, and unlike many other royal crowns and treasures, there's a lot more blue... More

We visited the Royal Treasury as part of the Royal Palace, this only took 30 minutes of our time to see all the exhibits. In here we could see the small collection of Crown Jewels which included Crowns, Swords, orbs and Scepters as well as a few other items. My personal favourite was Gustav Vasa's sword, while my partner has... More

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
