The Royal Family of Sweden’s enduring residence, Drottningholm Palace, is one of the country’s top tourist destinations. Constructed in the late 16th century by Nicodemus Tessin, it is the most well conserved royal castle in Sweden today. Aside from this difference, its architectural style is representative of European architecture for that period. Due to this, UNESCO added Drottningholm Palace to its esteemed World Heritage list.Visitors flock to the palace for three things: the striking Chinese Pavilion, the splendid palace theatre, and the grand palace gardens.The Chinese Pavilion was a souvenir from King Adolf Fredrik to Queen Lovisa Ulrika on her birthday in 1753. Here you can view oil paintings, charcoal drawings and dry-point etchings of Evert Lundquist.
