Drottningholm Palace

The Drottningholm Palace, located in Drottinholm, Sweden, is presently the private residence of the Swedish royal family. The palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and considered to be the most well-preserved 17th century Swedish castle. It was originally built in the late 16th century for Queen Eleonora, inspired by the French and Dutch styles.  Over the years, the palace has been renovated by successive royal residents and is famous for its stunning Rococo interiors.

The palace is surrounded by stunning Baroque gardens, including the French formal garden and the great English Park. It is also home to famous buildings such as the Court Theatre, the Castle Church and the Chinese Pavilion. In addition to being the private residence of the Swedish royal family, the palace is a popular attraction.
