view web site ›'s insider take:

It's not Europe's most beautiful palace, but the official home of King Carl XVI, in Gamla Stan, is one of the largest. This blocky, baroque edifice was begun in 1690 and largely completed by the middle of the 18th century. Today, the changing of the guard always attracts a crowd and the palace is open for tours, but your chances of spotting a royal here are slim. They spend most of their time outside the city at another palace, Drottningholm, which is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Inspired by Versailles, it is noted for its perfectly preserved theater dating from 1766, Chinese pavilions, and gardens in English and baroque styles.

Closed Mondays Sept.–May and most of Jan.
