Take a trip to the Royal palaces and visit the locations that have played central roles in Sweden's royal history. The palaces are home to four centuries of art and history, as well as some of the country's best-preserved interiors.

The Royal Palace, Drottningholm Palace and Gripsholm Castle are open all year round, and daily during the summer season. At the Royal Palace, Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities is open during the summer.

A number of royal summer palaces will also be open for the season: the Chinese Pavilion in Drottningholm Palace Park, Gustav III's Pavilion in Haga Park, Rosendal Palace on Djurgården, Ulriksdal Palace in Solna, Rosersberg Palace near Sigtuna, Tullgarn Palace near Trosa, and Strömsholm Palace near Västerås.

The Riddarholmen Church – Stockholm's only preserved mediaeval abbey – will also be open during the summer.
