The Royal Palace is magnificent and imposing from the outside. The same cannot be said of the inside, one can give it a miss. Photography inside the palace is not permitted. The change of guards parade was smart and worth watching.

It was a well laid out perspective of Swedish Royalty, the Palace itself is still in use today! I enjoyed the temporary exhibition that is on at the moment commemorating the 40 years that the King has been on the throne.

Yes this is a must see spot in Stockholm, but the one thing that ruined it for us was the archaic rule of "no photos allowed". When we look back at our visit there is a hole in our collective memory on the day we visited this castle. When one travels through European cities the blur of castles and palaces can lead to confusion about what was where, so photos are a must to recall the days events. Most historical buildings have areas where flash is not allowed and this is quite understandable when tapestries etc. can be damaged by all the light, but to say that the entire palace is off limits to any kind of photography whether flash or not is quite ridiculous The Stockholm Palace needs to review it's out-dated rules.

An insight into the history of the Swedish royal family. If you work your way around the European royal palaces you get a sense of the enormous wealth and power which was available to a small number of people. This one is no exception. you won't get a complete picture of the jigsaw puzzle that is European history over the last 300-400 years unless you include Sweden's contribution.

Landmark building in Gamla Stan in Stockholm.

Make sure you time it to see the Changing of the Guard - daily at 12.15pm

The Royal Palace is not the main residence of the King and is more of a formal residence and tourist attraction. The are a total of 5 separate museums within the Palace and guided tours available. However as there is so much to see in Gamla Stan - watching the Changing of the Guard and a good walk around the palace is enough - unless you really want to go inside. This will give you so much more time to amble around and enjoy the "old town"
