  • A Short Visit to the Royal Palace - Stockholm

The firstthing that you have to do when you visit Stockholm is the Royal Palace. The biggest part of the Palace is open to the public but strangely the photos are forbitten. The explanation is that photos are sold at the cafe of the Palace. Another way to earn money from the tourists. It consists of the following: the Apartments of the Orders of Chivalry, the Treasury, the Royal Apartments, the Museum of Antiquities of Gustav III, the Hall of State, the Tre Kronor Palace Museum and the Armoury.

According to the Royal Palace official site these are the Opening hours.
The opening hours for the Royal Apartments, the Treasury and the Tre Kronor Museum are as follows:
