Stockholm Palace

The Stockholm Palace or Royal Palace is the official residence and major royal palace of the Swedish Monarch. The palace is used for representative purposes by the King whilst performing his duties as the head of state. The first building on this site was a fortress with a core tower built in the 13th century by Birger Jarl to defend Lake Mälaren. The fortress grew to a palace, named Tre Kronor ("Three Crowns") after the core towers' spire. In the late 16th century, much work was done to transform the old fortress into a Renaissance-style palace under King John III. In 1690, it was decided to rebuild the palace in Baroque style after a design by Nicodemus Tessin the Younger. The palace has 1430 rooms, 660 with windows and is one of the largest royal palaces in the world still in use for its original purpose. The Stockholm Palace can be visited, and contains several museums.
