The Royal Palace.
The Royal Palace (Kungliga slottet) is one of the most popular attractions in Stockholm. However, the change of the guard has become a real performance for tourists who gather there every day just to see it. The change of the guard takes place at noon in front of the palace. However, the Royal Palace has much to offer its visitors. The impressive façade of the building already requires much attention. The design of 608 rooms of the palace (the palace has three more rooms comparing to Buckingham Palace, so the Royal Palace in Stockholm can safely be called the largest in the world) is the result of work of best artists and craftsmen in Europe. In addition to luxurious royal apartments, a banquet hall and the palace church, visitors are recommended to visit the Knight Order’s hall, the treasury, the Palace Museum “Three Crowns” (Tre Kronor), the arsenal and the Antique Museum of Gustav III. One more interesting thing - almost every year the King opens a new room that becomes available to public.
The Stockholm City Hall.
The Stockholm City Hall (Stadshuset) with its sparkling golden roof features beautiful views of the city. The tower is decorated with three crowns from the emblem of Stockholm. The City Hall is one of the most interesting and important buildings in Sweden, both in architectural and artistic meaning. The Blue Hall of the City Hall, which is open to visitors, hosts the annual banquet in honor of the Nobel Prize winners. The Golden Hall will also be of a great interest for visitors. The walls of this hall are decorated with mosaics made of 19 million pieces of gold foil.
