About the Royal Palace at the website of the Royal Palaces.
The Royal Palace of Stockholm is His Majesty The King's official residence and is also the setting for most of the monarchy's official receptions, open to the public year round.
This combination of royal residence, workplace and culture-historical monument open year round to visitors makes the Royal Palace of Stockholm unique amongst Europe's royal residences.
The palace is built in baroque style by the architect Nicodemus Tessin and is formed as a Roman palace. The palace has more than 600 rooms divided between eleven floors with a state apartment facing the city and smaller living rooms facing the inner courtyard.
The palace contains many interesting things to see. In addition to the Royal Apartments there are three museums steeped in regal history: the Treasury with the regalia, the Tre Kronor Museum that portrays the palaces medieval history and Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities.

Eastern octagonal cabinet is one of the rooms at the Palace with the most well-preserved rococo interiors. It was originally a room for a queen, located in the part of the Bernadotte floor that belonged to the Queen's floor. Here are female attributes in the interior. The War God Minerva, the sponsor of Science and the Free Arts, is seen on the wall decoration and on the doorstep owls.
It is also the room where the King receives new ambassadors in a formal audience.

Karl XI's gallery is the most magnificent space of the Palace and the Swedish baroque. The mirror gallery in Versailles has been the model, and just like that, each window corresponds to a mirror field on the inner wall. The paintings of the roof and sculptured decor, by Jacques Foucquet and René Chauveau, are a tribute to Karl XI and Ulrika Eleonora.
The gallery is seen in the Festive Floor at the Royal Palace. At four, five occasions a year, the official dinners are held in the gallery. The palace's representation apartments consist of 25 halls and rooms, open daily all year except for certain closures in connection with the royal official representation.

In Bernadotte Apartments at the Royal Palace, hangs The Bernadotte Dynasty. The Apartments consist of fourteen rooms located in the northern latitude of the Palace and houses the portraits of the Bernadotte family - from Karl XIV Johan and Desideria to Carl XVI Gustaf and Silvia. The paintings are painted by contemporary artists such as Per Krafft, François Gérard, Anders Zorn and Emil Österman, to name a few. When the apartments are not used for entertainment, they are open daily to discover on its own or with our audio guide.

The Victoria Salon at the Royal Palace. On Karl XV's mission in 1865, architect Fredrik Wilhelm Scholander transformed the room into sumptuous new rococo. The carpet covers the entire room is probably woven in Brussels. The huge and detailed chandeliers are evidently made to impress. Each copy weighs about 200 kilos and was purchased from the Lobemeyr company in Vienna in the 1860s. The wall of the inner wall is of red velvet with Queen Lovisa Ulrika's monogram in gold and silver. The stucco roof is designed with royal crowns and a masonry in gold (the roof pattern is found on a series of products in the Royal Gift shop). The marble busts of the King and Queen were made in the 21st century by Italian sculptor Giancarlo Buratti.

Many visitors pay attention to the detailed cabinet that stands in the Victoria Salon at the Royal Palace. The cabinet of Sèvresporslin and gilt bronze, is a state gift from Napoleon III to Charles XV in 1863. The cabinet was designed by Leon Feuchéres and the recessed porcelain plates are painted by Auguste Borget. Borget was influenced by oriental motifs, especially Chinese, and the paintings show motives from China he visited.

Carl XVI Gustaf's Jubilee Room
In connection with the King's 25 on the throne anniversary, in 1998, the Riksdag, government and Sweden's municipalities handed over sketches to a new interior of a room at the Royal Palace. The room has the theme "A Swedish summer day".
The realization of these sketches rested mainly on the architect Åke Axelsson. Axelsson has previously worked with interior design for the Swedish Parliament, a number of libraries and schools. Eva Rodenius has designed the fabric on the furniture - woven up by Klässbols Linneväveri. A large carpet was designed by textile artist Nini Sandström and was woven by Märta Måås-Fjetterström AB in collaboration with Handarbetets Vänner. The wall field's watercolor painting was painted by the artist Lars Abrahamsson in place to get the right lighting conditions. The painting, Brunnerskalet i Årefjällen, to the right in the room is painted by Björn Wessman and the portraits on the left depicting the King and The Queen are painted by Catrine Näsmark.
The room is a good example of how well modern Swedish design works in an 18th century environment. It was officially opened for the first time in connection with the National Day celebration in 2001. The room is also used for representation.
