The Palace is open to the public and offers no less than five museums. The Palace was largely built during the 18th century in the Italian Baroque style, on the spot where the “Tre Kronor” castle burned down in 1697. Visit the reception rooms with splendid interiors from the 18th and 19th centuries, Rikssalen (the Hall of State) with Queen Kristina’s silver throne, and Ordenssalarna (Halls of the Orders of Chivalry). You can also see Gustav III’s Museum of Antiquities, the Tre Kronor Museum and the Treasury.

The Royal Palace also contains the Armory, with royal costumes and armor, as well as coronation carriages and magnificent coaches from the Royal Stable, which tell stories of royal coronations, weddings and funerals. Learn about Streiff, the horse belonging to Gustav II Adolf. See Karl XII’s muddy blue uniform from 1718 and the clothing Gustav III wore to the masquerade ball of 1792.
Make sure not to miss the parade of soldiers and the daily changing of the guard.
