This tour of the remarkably well-preserved past has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Drottningholm Palace, also known as the Royal Domain of Drottningholm, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the residence of Sweden's Royal Family.
Just outside the city of Stockholm on the island of Lovon, you'll find the exceptionally well-preserved Drottingholm Palace. Constructed in the 1600s and one of Sweden's most important historical buildings, the palace is strongly influenced by 17th century Italian and French architecture. But unlike other structures of the same type and time period, you'll find unusual features such as the Palace Theatre, the Chinese Pavilion, and Canton Village.
Your guide will provide many historical details including how previous monarchs have influenced the palace and its grounds.
As you wander through the lush gardens, you'll find the French formal garden with its many sculptures, the rococo garden, and the landscape garden beautifully positioned, side by side.
Although the private residence of Sweden's Royal Family is not open to the public, you'll find many fascinating historical details and beautiful sites to hold your interest.
