"The Royal Palace" Kungliga Slottet - Royal Palace Tip by bijo69

 
 

The Royal Palace supposedly is the largest of its kind the world with 608 rooms. The king still has his working quarters here, but resides in Drottningholm. The palace was built during 60 years after the old one burned down in 1697.
You can visit the royal apartments as long as there isn't an official reception (I was unlucky, the Bulgarian president was being entertained there).
A couple of other museums occupy some place in the palace. I visited the Treasury where you can marvel at the crowns and swords of former kings (quite small) and the Tre Kronor museum which is dedicated to the history of the old palace (Tre Kronor).
Opening times depend on the season, so check before you go. Admission to the museums is 90 SEK each!
