Gripsholm is known as Gustav Vasa’s castle, as it was he who built the castle here in 1537. Since Gustav Vasa, Gripsholm has belonged to the Swedish Royal Family and was used as one of their residences until the 18th-century.
Now the castle is a museum open to the public, containing paintings and works of art. Part of the castle houses the National Portrait Gallery, one of the oldest portrait collections in the world.
