The Royal Palace of Stockholm is also called Stockholms Slot and is located on the island of Gamla Stan. The palace was largely built during the 18th century in the Italian Baroque style. Although no one lives here anymore, it is the official residence of the King of Sweden.  

The Royal palace has more than 600 rooms and contains 5 museums. Sweden’s most famous and oldest museum housed here is the: Livrustkammaren (The Royal Armoury museum). With 600 different rooms, this palace is one of the largest in the world. On your visit, see the reception rooms with beautiful interiors from the 18th and 19th centuries, the ‘Rikssalen’ with Queen Kristina’s silver throne, the ‘Ordenssalarna’ and Gustav III’s Museum of Antiquities and much more.

Witness the changing of the guard, which, like at London’s Buckingham Palace, takes place here with great grandeur.

The changing of the guard takes place at 12:15 PM every day during the summer months (adjusted times on Sundays and public holidays). Outside the summer months, it is only on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
