Historic royal palace

The Royal Palace of Stockholm (Stockholms slott) is the official residence of His Majesty the King and is used for most of the monarchy’s official receptions, such as gala dinners and visits by heads of state. It serves as the daily workplace for King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia as well as for the Royal Court. (The actual residence of the King and Queen is at Drottningholm Palace.)
Built in the 17th and 18th century, the palace has more than 600 rooms, making it one of the largest royal palaces in the world still in use for its original purpose. In addition to the Royal Apartments, there are three museums within the palace: the Treasury with the regalia, the Tre Kronor Museum that portrays the palace's medieval history and King Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities.
The Stockholm Palace is located on the small island of Stadsholmen (“City Island”) in Gamla Stan, the city’s old town. Nearby is the Royal Chapel (Storkyrkan), where Sweden’s newest royal couple, Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling, were wed in 2010.
