Royal Palace - Review
The palace is quite a source of instant gratification, especially if you’re a history buff or simply enjoy looking at luxurious opulence. One of Europe’s most magnificent castles, the Palace is still the official residence of the Swiss monarch. Built on the site of a medieval fortress, various remodeling processes have left a primarily Baroque-High Renaissance architectural mix. The most famous of things to do here is watch the changing of the guards, that sadly enough, happens only in the summer. You’ll find large crowds gathering every day just to watch the guards proceed through this historic drill.
Other than that, enjoy over 600 hundred rooms accessible to the public, several of which are pretty good museums (the Tre Konnor Museum, the Treasury and the Armory). Some rooms are officially used for important receptions. Rooms of special note include the magnificent Charles XI gallery (modeled after the mirror room in Versailles), the beautiful Bernadotte Rooms, the State Room and the royal chapel. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 5 Days.

Royal Palace, Stockholm Reviews
Great place to visit and learn about the rich history of Sweden. The staff (guides) are knowledgeable and friendly. The museum is well decorated with authentic pieces from the different centuries. There are several tales of ghosts at the palace. One is the Old Grey Man who according to tradition lives in the cellar ruins of the old Castle. He is considered to be a kind of guarding spirit for the palace and he is able to predict the future.
It is a beautiful palace situated right by the water that gives it even more of a majestic look! Its huge so you definitely can't miss it! We got there a little late so couldn't go inside but plenty to see and discover at the publicly open places. The guards are everywhere and are very polite though they wont have a conversation with you they will stop you if you get too close to them. Towards the back are the private quarters as well as the old cobblestone covered town! Very picturesque and beautiful!
Very nice and historical place. Highly recommended to visit if you are in Stockholm. The palace is huge and very beautiful. You can even go inside and see many part from inside too. If you there at right time you have possibility to see hard change which is quite beautiful to watch.
Huge with a great collection of crown jewels and an extensive apartment complex. The chapel was really nice to see as well. Very ornate! The price is reasonable for everything you get to see. Definitely worth a visit if you go to Stockholm.
I had an amazing time here! I bought a student ticket, and it was well worth it. The palace is huge, it has all information in both English and Swedish. Also, some parts had a free audio guide, which was very helpful to understand even more about the Swedish royalties and history. Loved every second of it. I highly recommend this place if you are in Stockholm.
