|Step aboard a boat from the turn of last century and take a trip to the pearl of Lake M?laren. Drottningholm Palace, the residence of the Swedish royal family. Drottningholm has plenty of delights to offer. It is set in luxuriant landscaped grounds and Drottningholm Palace Theatre is a piece of genuine Swedish cultural history, the Chinese Pavilion a work of art constructed by the hands of master craftsmen.
Drottningholm was named after John III who constructed the palace for his wife Katarina Jagellonika. Nevertheless, the palace burned down in the end of the 15th century. The construction as we see it today was continued 1661 by Hedvig Eleonoras architect Nicodemus Tessin. Meny royalties have since then contributed with their unique touch to the palace creating what we see today.
The palace has become a Swedish world heritage contribution. It is Swedens best preserved palace built in the 16th century representating European royalties and architecture from that era.
