One of Sweden's best preserved Royal palaces, Drottningholm was built in the 16th century and today is still the home of Sweden's Royal family.
It's located in a suburb of Stockholm and visitors can see the church with its 18th century organ, and the theatre, used today for concerts and operas. Just as impressive are the gardens, which have been created over the centuries.
One popular spot is the Chinese Pavilion with its valuable items imported by the Swedish East India Company; the grounds also includes themed gardens. The English garden features avenues of trees, canals and bridges, marble statues and several viewpoints.
