Sweden conjures images of flat pack furniture from IKEA or modern casual styles at H&M. Maybe you think Swedish meatballs or Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring a masterful goal. In truth, Sweden is all this and much much more. The capital Stockholm is known as the “Venice of Scandinavia,” and is where you can visit the majestic Stockholm Royal Palace, tour the historic Vasa Museum, or learn about the history of the Nobel Prize at the Nobel Museum. The Sweden Solar System is a scale model of the entire solar system that starts at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm extends all the way up to the Swedish Institute of Space Physics in the country’s far north at Kiruna. During the summer, long hours of daylight make this a fantastic place for venturing outdoors. Sweden is truly a wondrous destination.

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.
Drottningholm Palace is a World Heritage Site of Sweden. It has two magnificent historic buildings with a long history: the Chinese Pavillion and the Drottningholm Palace Theatre. To this day, the castle part of Drottningholm is still home to the Swedish royal family. Today's Drottningholm Palace is a mix of French Baroque style and British style. Visitors have the opportunity to look around and have a good time.
