This magnificent edifice is well worth the visit. Located just on the border of old town is Stockholm it is still one of the many palaces of the king and queen with about 618 rooms.

It's definitely worth a visit. Very beautiful and rich with history. It's quite large, so make sure you plan your visit accordingly. The armory is also worth seeing.

Think about something that can overwhelm you and then double it!! Everywhere you look there is another sumptious feast for the eyes. Words do not come close to match the images. The self guided tour can leave you a little scattered and a good deal...More

Great part of Sweden history so go if you are in to that history then visit. If you visited the Palaces in Russia then don't bother. The wealth of the Czar's is beyond any royalty in Europe and certainly Sweden. I would visit the royalty...More

The palace is still in use. Unlike many in Europe that was destroyed by war the furnishings and decor are original since Sweden was neutral for 200 years. Changing of the guard is woth seeing but get there early.

This is a must see even for a short visit in the city - an impressive 18th century building with lavish interiors and great collections.

We enjoyed seeing the changing of the guard at the palace, with it's horse-led parade through town and little concert on the palace square that accompany the solemn ritual of the guard change. PLEASE follow the instructions of the guards who instruct you where to...More

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

Yes, there is a charge. I went as part of a group - and so the price I paid would not necessarily be the same as the going rate. I think you should budget to spend at least USD30 per person for entry to both these places.

Unfortunately you have to pay. But once you buy you have four days to look at other museum as well.
