Drottningholm Palace, one of Sweden's royal palaces, lies on the island of Lovön. It's here that the current monarch, King Carl XVI Gustaf, and his wife, Queen Silvia, live. Built in the 1600s, this is the best-preserved royal palace of its period in Sweden, making it a fantastic representation of European architecture from the seventeenth century. So well preserved, in fact, that the palace has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Drottningholm Palace was designed by the architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder at the behest of Queen Hedvig Eleonora, who also led the creation of its beautiful Baroque gardens. Later, Gustav III created landscaped English gardens, which feature ponds, bridges and walkways dotted with antique sculptures. All of these can be explored on a visit to the palace. You’ll also have the opportunity to enter the incredible palace theatre, which was built in 1766, and which still hosts performances today. The Chinese Pavilion, built around the same time, is well worth visiting too, as is the Palace Church, which features an organ dating back to 1730 and a tapestry made by Gustav V.
