The most attractive thing here is actually the ceiling.
The ceiling of the Stockholm Royal Palace records the history of the development of many Swedish kingdoms. There are many crystal lamps that are exquisitely crafted and exudes a radiant glow. There are also many beautiful reliefs, murals, and perhaps hidden secrets we dont know. .

Watching the palace changing ceremony in Stockholm
Sweden Palace is located in the old town of Stockholm, the west is a courtyard surrounded by a semi-circular wing, and the east is the main building of the square in the square. Every day at noon, the guards are going to hold a changing ceremony here, and we just caught up. The ceremony was held in a semi-circular square in front of the palace, and the crowd had already packed the perimeter of the cordon in advance. The guard of honor was derailed from the colonnade around the square and began to perform in a row. The whole ceremony was almost half an hour. Among them, there were female soldiers, which were really heroic. Of course, this is a small scale compared to the changing ceremony at Buckingham Palace, but it is also very interesting to see. After the ceremony, I also took a photo with the stationed soldiers. I can see that he politely leaned over to me, hehe.
The Stockholm Royal Palace is located on the island of Stadt in the Old Town. It is the place where the King of Sweden works and celebrates, and is also a major tourist attraction in Stockholm. The palace was built in the Middle Ages. In the early days, it was a military fort. It was gradually transformed and expanded at the end of the 17th century and became the royal palace of today. The palace is built on the water, and the building is square. It is a small square castle with a white exterior and elegant atmosphere. Now the Swedish royal family does not live here, but lives in Queens Island in the suburbs, but the king drives to the palace every day to go to work.
