Top sigths of Sweden
The Royal Palace is an everlasting symbol of Stockholm. Until the middle of the 18th century, an ancient fortress stood on the site of the modern palace. The Fortress was completely destroyed by fire, and a beautiful palace was built instead of it thanks to efforts of famous architect Nicodemus Tessin. The palace consists of 600 rooms, a half of which is open to visitors. One can see here beautiful tapestries, old furniture, collections of jewelry and weapons.
