Your favorite royal palace

Of the royal palaces in Europe, which would you most like to live in? Which is the most stylish? Which is the most imposing?

My favorite is Castle Peles in Romania, in part because it's one of the few that I've toured inside and outside. It's absolutely stunning.

Others?

I have a list on my laptop that I'll have to look for but off the top of my head id say the Winter Palace and Hampton Court. There is another one in Russia I like I think it might be called The Catherine Palace or something like that.

My favourite royal palaces are:

- Drottningholm Palace
- Hampton Court Palace
- Charlottensburg Palace
- Buckingham Palace
- The Royal Palace of Amsterdam

Edit: I have been browsing through the Serbian Royal Family's official website and a link bought me to one of their palaces, "the White Palace". It gets a place on my list as I think it looks lovely from the inside and out. Here's a link to photos (and information) of the palace:

My favourite palace is the Royal palace in Oslo, because I like the architecture, the colour, the fact that you can walk right round it and it is in such a lovely elevated position. I think it is great that there are no high gates or railings in front of it too.

I totally forgot about Versailles, but if I owned it and lived there I would have to rent out rooms for like 100 people, that place is huge and insane.

I like the small palace that Beatrix lives in now. It is either hexagonal or octagonal. I saw pictures of the interior on a thread some months back. Lovely interior and exquisite furnishings. Nothing looks worn out or archaic, but all is lovely and gracious.
The public rooms at Berg in Luxembourg are nice. Public doesn't see the private rooms.

I like the Amalienborg complex in Copenhagen, The three palaces that make up the complex are each elegant yet cozy and livable and together make a very dignified setting for the Danish monarchy. I also like that upon succession no one has to move. When Frederik and Mary come to the throne they will stay where they are and young Christian will eventually get to live in the palace of QMII and Prince Henrik.

Yes, NGalitzine, that's the proper way to house the generations of the royal family.
