Living the Grandeur of Stockholm Royal Palace

Stockholm Palace is a grand reminder of a Swedish era, we never saw. We can’t tell you, what was it, to walk inside this beautiful Palace of the ruling Monarchy. But, we can show you a glimpse of what we saw! Floored with an Italian layout, Stockholm Palace is indeed, the official residence of the present King of Sweden. As long as, the King is travelling, this Palace is open for visitors to observe. Despite, opting for a guided-tour, much of our exploration was pursued in silence. Besides, wherever we went, we were followed by the red (blue) carpet. So to say, we felt more, than we could listen, at that moment. Something about this Royal residence is extraordinarily appealing.

The paintings, collector’s items, antiques, or perhaps, just that royalty in the air. It’s hard to tell, which one of these left us spellbound. We think, all of them! Leisurely strolling on the blue carpet, we crossed several rooms, which were built in the 17th-century, by and for, King Gustavus Adolphus. The areas we explored were the Hall of State, the Royal Chapel, the Regalia of Sweden, and the ‘Tre-Kronor’ Museum.

Inside Stockholm Royal Palace

Of whatever little we remember, of what our guide told us; she said Stockholm Palace, is built on the same site as the TreKronor Manor. Way back in the 13th-century, TreKronor Manor was burnt down, in a massive fire. Post which, Royal Stockholm Palace (Stadsholmen) was, raised on the same site in the late 16th-century.

We began our tour by visiting the Hall of State, and the Hall of Chivalry. Inside the Hall of State, we spotted Queen Kristina’s silver throne, which thrilled us on another level.

Vast Courtyards and Picture-perfect Cannons

We ended our Stockholm Palace tour by filming the vast courtyards and the picture-perfect Cannons. Although, the surprising element of this whole trip was the unannounced ‘change of the guard’ ceremony. Something, every traveller fancies, secretly! Guarding the Stockholm Royal Palace since the 15th-century, these guards have spent centuries keeping the Royal Secrets.

By the noon, the Palace gets crowded as more and more, visitors walk in. The official count of tourists visiting Stockholm Royal Palace is close to 400 thousand on an annual scale.

The entry ticket to the palace is priced at 180 Swedish Krona, equivalent to INR 1400. This ticket is your pass to the Royal Chamber, 3 Kronor Treasury, and the Antiquities Museum. We paid SEK 20 extra for the guided tour. By all means, getting a guide is the best way to discover Stockholm Royal Palace,
