I visited the Royal Palace (Official webpage in English and Chinese) in Stockholm, Sweden this Saturday. According to the Wikipedia entry:

The Stockholm Palace (Swedish: Stockholms slott) is the official residence and major royal palace of the Swedish monarch.

Actually I did not get into the Royal Apartments, because it is closed now and will continue to be closed until April 26. Fortunately the ticket is valid until May 11, so if I am still in Stockhom on April 26, I can go to visit the Royal Apartments at that time. I visited the Tre Kronor Museum, a museum dedicated to the original Tre Kronor Palace in Stockholm, which was destroyed in a violent fire in 1697. I also visited Gustav III’s Museum of Antiquities, one of Europe’s oldest museums, which first opened its doors in 1794. Unfortunately, photography is not allowed in the Tre Kronor Museum and Gustav III’s Museum of Antiquities, so I have not taken any photo in these two places.

But there are some more photos below… and you can see how the Royal Palace looks like…
