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.
