Royal Swedish Opera

The Royal Swedish Opera, or simply the Operan, carries forward the legacy of King Gustav III under whose reign the Swedish arts were celebrated with much aplomb. The great monarch was a passionate patron of the arts and founded both the Royal Swedish Opera and the Royal Swedish Ballet in the year 1773. A new home for the Royal Opera was soon conceived of and constructed in 1782, although this was eventually replaced by the glorious classical Operan in 1892, designed by Axel Johan Anderberg. The stately exterior does little to prepare you for the opulence within; a grand spectacle of elaborate stucco embellishments, lavish gilt ornamentation, and rich, vibrant paintings, all illuminated by sparkling chandeliers. The Operan is truly a baroque gem and a fitting venue for the Swedish national stage. The opera house hosts a much-acclaimed program of ballets, concerts and operas; it is the home of the Royal Swedish Ballet and Opera companies to this day.


Located in Djurgården, this open-air museum also has a zoological park that displays Scandinavian fauna. Arthur Hazelius laid the foundation of this museum-park in 1891 to showcase the historical transition of the Swedish people. Historic buildings that date back to the 18th century surround the park, and the hosts dressed in traditional costumes greet the visitors. The park is open all through the year, and tourists throng to the place to experience the 18th century lifestyle. Prices and hours depend on the time of year, so be sure to check the website for further details.

Stockholm Palace

The King of Sweden's official residence, Stockholm Royal Palace, which dates back to the thirteenth century is situated in the Old Town. The new palace was built between 1697-1754, according to the original drawings, in Roman Baroque style. With over 600 rooms, the palace is one of the largest residential castles in Europe. A number of museums are located within the walls, such as the Treasury, Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities, the Royal Armoury and the Royal Chapel. The changing of the guard is a treat to watch.

Stockholm City Hall

Stockholm City Hall, a gorgeous and historical municipal building, houses offices, ceremonial and banquet halls. The tower of the City Hall is located at the shores of Lake Mälaren and offers an incredible view of the city. It is open for access daily from May to September at a nominal admission price.


Enjoy spell-binding art at Fotografiska, located in a historic Art Nouveau style building built in 1906. Known as one of the leading photography museums of our time, Fotografiska's large space is dedicated to hosting four large-scale exhibitions annually, besides also hosting 20 small scale exhibitions during the year. In the past, Fotografiska has featured prominent artists in the field, such as Helene Schmitz, Albert Wiking and Martin Borgen. The large space also consists of an award-winning restaurant, a gift shop and a book shop.

Royal Dramatic Theatre

This is home to many of Sweden's top international stars, featuring many a classic play written by Strindberg, Ibsen, Chekhov and Shakespeare. King Gustav III founded this magnificent theater in 1788 for Swedish dramas to be performed in their original language. The building is a milestone in Swedish theater history. Please arrive on time: there is no admission once the performance has commenced. Guided tours are available, and these provide an interesting look at both the theater's history and daily routines.
