With its 608 rooms, the Royal Palace in Gamla Stan, Stockholm is one of Europe’s biggest. Part of the Palace is built on the remains of the first one, Tre Kronor, which was almost completely destroyed in a fire in 1697.

Vasa Museum (Vasamuseet)

This museum is located on the north-western bank of Djurgården, behind the Nordiska Museet when heading from Östermalm. The Vasa, which measures 68m in length, 11.3m in width and 52m in height, was probably the largest battleship of her time, but she was sunk by a strong gust of wind shortly after setting out on her maiden voyage on August 10, 1628. The ship was left at the bottom of the sea for more than 300 years, but was salvaged in 1961 and was then displayed in a temporary museum until 1988. The present museum was opened in 1990. This ship is a must-see.

Royal Palace Kungliga Slottet

This palace looks as if it is actually standing on the water. This is the place where Birger Jarl first built the castle, but the current building is of Dutch Renaissance style dating back to 1760. The palace has 608 rooms, but with the residential castle now located in Drottningholms Palace (Drottningholms Slott), this palace is only used on certain occasions, such as for entertaining state and public guests, and for housing diplomats.
