Royal Palace of Stockholm

History and culture is not my top favorites, but after all, this was my first ever European Palace visit. Even a person like me who is least interested in kings and queens (other than Game of thrones), tend to get captivated with the Royal essence of this Palace. To my very fortunate fortune, I happened to be here on Swedish National Day 6th June 2015, which clearly meant a special 'Change of Guards' Ceremony. At least five hundred people were gathered at the Main Entrance of Royal Palace waiting to witness this event. It started with the loud Cannon Fires which took place 3 Kms away from the Palace in the island of Djurgården. I couldn't access the place where the actual Gaurd Changing took place, all I could cover is the procession. Though I have pictures of the Change of Guards Ceremony which took place the next day. After the ceremony, everybody was allowed inside the Palace which was open to Public free of cost that day. Not to be missed in the Royal Palace Museum are: 1. The Royal Apartments 2. Tre Kronor Museum( Dedicated to the original Tre Kronor Palace in Stockholm, which was destroyed in a violent fire in 1697) 3. The Treasury 4. Gustav III, Museum of Antiquities Rest is for you to find out when you visit this amazing Palace. Do checkout the pictures attached. You will not find the pictures of Treasury section as it was not allowed to take pictures over there. Thanks Amulya
